The Pittsburgh Steelers will open the season Sunday night against the Denver Broncos, but the status of one of their best players on defense remains unclear.

All-Pro linebacker James Harrison was limited in practice Wednesday and did not practice on Thursday, according to Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post Gazette.

Harrison was officially activated by the Steelers last week after undergoing knee surgery last month, but missing practice may mean a step backward in the recovery process.

According to Chris Adamski of CBSports.com, Harrison wont be talking to the media until Friday. Posted on his locker were a pair of signs that read, "I will answer all questions on Fridays, and only Fridays."

The policy will remain in effect all season. Harrison believes that the media coverage tends to be smaller on Fridays.

Harrison tweeted out on Thursday that, "I will be practicing tomorrow and (will) have a better (idea) if I'll be ready to go on Sunday night."
