Steelers Expect To Have All Injured Players Back Sunday
For the first time this season, the Steelers will be at full strength defensively when they host the Philadelphia Eagles at Heinz Field on Sunday. And running back Rashard Mendenhall is scheduled to return in hopes of igniting a stalled ground game.
Mendenhall, linebacker James Harrison and safety Troy Polamalu practiced Friday and are listed as probable, along with offensive tackle Marcus Gilbert.
The Steelers, 1-2 for the first time since 2009, are hoping the return of Harrison (knee), Polamalu (calf) and Mendenhall (knee) can keep them from slipping to 1-3 and farther behind AFC North rivals Baltimore (3-1) and Cincinnati (3-1).
“We know the two defeats we have, it’s come down to one-on-one matchups,” Polamalu said. “There were breakdowns here and there. It’s not that I would have made a play that (safety) Ryan Mundy couldn’t, and I’m sure James would say the same about (linebacker) Chris Carter.”
“There’s always a perfect time to come back from injuries, and it’s nice to have guys healthy.”
