Steelers LB James Harrison, FS Troy Polamalu Won't Play Vs Jets
For the first time in six years, the Steelers won't have either of their NFL Defensive Players of the Year in the starting lineup.
According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Gerry Dulac, linebacker James Harrison (knee) and safety Troy Polamalu (calf) won't play Sunday against the New York Jets. Harrison and Polamalu are officially listed as questionable, but they haven't practiced all week.
The Steelers are fortunate that they have capable backups in linebacker Chris Carter and safety Ryan Mundy. What Pittsburgh loses is experience and playmaking ability.
