The Pittsburgh Steelers, already in rough shape physically through the first four weeks of the NFL season, lost another key contributor this week when veteran linebacker James Harrison went down with a fractured orbital bone around his right eye. The timetable for Harrison's return is still unknown.
The good news for Steelers fans? Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, who sprained his left foot in Week 4's 17-10 loss to the Houston Texans, is listed as probable on the injury report and is expected to start this week against the Tennessee Titans. Roethlisberger practiced in full all week, but it is not known how much the injury may limit him when the game officially begins. Injury report for Steelers and Titans below:
