The Steelers’ Friday injury report is out, and it contains mostly good news. Troy Polamalu was back to full participation in practice, and is listed as probable. Nick Eason, who missed Wednesday and Thursday’s practice with illness, was back today and is probable as well. Brett Keisel participated in practice but is listed as questionable – his hamstring feels good enough to practice, but he isn’t yet sure if he should test it in a game.
“I really need to listen to my body,” Keisel said. "Last time, when I thought I felt great because I didn’t have pain after a workout, I still didn’t feel like I was 100 percent. I think we’re going to wait until I really feel like I’m 100 percent, where I can do football movements in practice just as much as you would need to do in a game.’’
Hines Ward, Lawrence Timmons, Chris Kemoeatu and Crezdon Butler are all listed as probable, but all participated in practice and should be available Sunday. Will Allen and Aaron Smith are the Steelers’ only scratches.
