Polamalu’s injury is more serious because of what he means to that defense. The Steelers have a great defense, but no player is more important to their defense than him.

He’s their only irreplaceable defensive player and...

James Harrison was hopeful to play Week one against Denver, but he wasn’t ready. Heading into Week two its the same story. Harrison’s knee injury will hold him out for the second straight week.

According to Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, we shouldn’t expect Steelers linebacker James Harrison to be back on the field until week five. This means he’ll likely miss the next two games.
Do not expect James Harrison to play until after Sept 30 bye week.

According to Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, even though on Thursday Steelers linebacker James Harrison claimed that he’ll be playing this weekend, it doesn’t look like that will be the case.
Instead of full-go, Harrison looks like a no-go again Sunday when the Steelers play the New York Jets at Heinz Field.
The good news is that the Steelers almost came away with...

On Thursday, guard Dennis Landolt (knee) was ruled out for the game while tight end Dustin Keller (hamstring), safety LaRon Landry (heel...
The Pittsburgh Steelers and New York Jets have played some very tight, physical ballgames in recent years and there is no reason to suggest this one won’t be the same if not similar. There is however a storyline that has emerged that we haven’t seen in previous match-ups and that of course is the injury bug plaguing both teams.
Hard to believe in week two that injuries are already...
