James Harrison and Troy Polamalu have been fixtures in the Steelers stout defense in recent years and have been catalysts of chaos for other teams' offenses, but will they play against the Jets come Sunday? ?No one seems to know for sure, but?Ed Bouchette of the Post-Gazette writes that it ?appears as if Harrison and maybe even Polamalu too won't be playing come Sunday.
At noon Thursday, [Harrison] said, "I'm great, I'm full go, I'm playing on Sunday. Run it." He added, "I've been known to lie."
And then Harrison did not run at all and did not step foot on the practice field. He missed his fourth consecutive practice sandwiched around a missed season opener.
