The Pittsburgh Steelers injury report has been released, and for the second straight day Wednesday safety Troy Polamalu (calf) did not participate in practice as the Steelers continued preparation for Sunday's contest against the visiting New York Jets (4:25 p.m. ET on CBS). Despite Polamalu's absence Pittsburgh is still expecting him to play.
Other notables not participating in practice were linebackers James Harrison (knee) and Stevenson Sylvester (knee) and running back Jonathan Dwyer (foot). Dwyers' presence is a bit of a surprise as head coach Mike Tomlin did not mention his health in Tuesday's press conference.
Limited in practice was defensive end Ziggy Hood (back), while running back Rashard Mendenhall (knee) was a full participant in practice. The case was the same for guard Ramon Foster (eye) and tackle Marcus Gilbert (knee).
Meanwhile, notable players that did not practice for the Jets were cornerback Darrelle Revis and wide receiver Jeremy Kerley. Revis was out with a concussion, but according to reports he was cleared for Thursday's practice, though, he needs to avoid any contact. Kerley woke up with a bad back.
