Harrison and Polamalu inactive for Steelers
Steelers linebacker James Harrison and safety Troy Polamalu are
inactive for Sunday’s game against the New York Jets.
Harrison is still recovering from minor surgery on his right
knee last month. Polamalu strained his right calf in a loss to
Denver last week and also did not practice. Chris Carter will start
for Harrison, with Ryan Mundy playing for Polamalu.
Quarterback Charlie Batch, running back Rashard Mendenhall, nose
tackle Alameda Ta’amu, guard Kelvin Beachum and linebacker
Stevenson Sylvester are also inactive for Pittsburgh.
The Jets made cornerback Darrelle Revis inactive. Revis is
recovering from a mild concussion sustained in a win over Buffalo.
Kyle Wilson will start in Revis’ spot. Another starter, TE Dustin
Keller, is out, as are quarterback Greg McElroy, linebacker Bryan
Thomas, offensive linemen Dennis Landolt and Caleb Schlauderaff and
defensive lineman Damon Harrison.
