Pittsburgh linebacker James Harrison is saying he’ll play Sunday against the New York Jets, but his body may be telling him no. Harrison’s balky knee forced him to sit out Thursday’s practice after telling the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette beforehand that he expected to see his first action of the season. He missed the Steelers’ opener and all of the preseason. “I'm great, I'm full go, I'm playing on Sunday. Run it,” the Pro Bowler was quoted as saying to a Post-Gazette reporter before practice. Safety Troy Polamalu (calf), tackle Max Starks (illness) and linebacker Stevenson Sylvester (knee) also didn’t practice.
