Default Tomlin: Steelers OLs hurt in Denver "should be fine" for home opener

http://www.post-gazette.com/stories/...opener-652833/

Troys got a calf - no biggy though. Harrison possibly back? Already in urgent mode or still hold off? Thoughts?

Clark is back....that is a good thing. Troy can ease his way back this week. I would not want to rush Harrison if he isnt 90%.

If the Bills D-line could not get to Sanchez, then not likely our front 7 will. Better just try to get in a track meet with the Jets, no use trying to use any clock and keep them off the field. I see Ben throwing 60 times this week.

James Harrison worked out Monday

Updated: September 11, 2012
ESPN.com news services

PITTSBURGH -- Injured Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison worked out on Monday and coach Mike Tomlin says there's a chance the four-time Pro Bowler could play in Sunday's home opener against the New York Jets.

Harrison sat out the entire preseason while nursing a left knee injury. He underwent a minor procedure on the knee last month and didn't play in a 31-19 season-opening loss at Denver.

Tomlin says Tuesday the team will monitor Harrison's progress throughout the week.

"We will see where he is," Tomlin said, according to the Steelers' official website. "We will follow the same protocol we did with him last week. We will work him up to activity and see how his knee responds to that activity and let that be our guide in terms of his participation."

The Steelers do expect to have safety Ryan Clark back. Clark sat out the Broncos' game as a precaution due to a sickle cell trait that makes it dangerous for him to exert himself at high altitude.

Pittsburgh expects to have starting right guard Ramon Foster and starting right tackle Marcus Gilbert for the Jets. Both players left the opener with minor injuries.

I know injuries are part of the game, but it seems like Marcus Gilbert gets injured damn near every game. I wonder if it's a problem with his technique or just bad luck.

Revis sustained a mild concussion last week. He's expected to play. Perhaps the Steelers should give Hines a one-game contract so he can "test" how Revis's head is doing.
