The Pittsburgh Steelers are without All-Pro linebacker James Harrison against the Titans.

Harrison had surgery Wednesday to repair a fractured orbital bone around his right eye. He was joined on the inactive list for Sunday's game by defensive end Aaron Smith and nose tackle Casey Hampton.

Ziggy Hood will start for Smith, Lawrence Timmons will move to outside linebacker to replace Harrison and Chris Hoke will start at nose.

Running back Mewelde Moore, CB Cortez Allen, G Chris Kemoeatu and LB Jason Worilds are also inactive for the Steelers.

The Titans will be without S Chris Hope, T Byron Stingily, DT Zach Clayton, DE Malcolm Sheppard, QB Rusty Smith and G Kevin Matthews and CB Chris Hawkins.

Pittsburgh running back Rashard Mendenhall (hamstring) was active and expected to be available.
