Injured Steelers James Harrison and Troy Polamalu practiced on Monday as the team returned from its bye week.
Harrison declined to speculate on whether he'll be available for Sunday's game against Philadelphia. The four-time Pro Bowler has been slowed by a left knee injury and he skipped the team's final practice last week. Harrison said he'll have a better idea on if he'll be ready to play for the first time this season on Friday.
Polamalu, who missed the last two games with a strained right calf, says he feels ''pretty good'' and that it was nice to have the starting defense on the practice field together for the first time in awhile. Pittsburgh (1-2) is looking to avoid its first 1-3 start since 2006 the Eagles (3-1).
