Friday night

Strong safety Troy Polamalu and wide receiver Hines Ward were held out of practice Friday night in what head coach Mike Tomlin said was basically a veteran's night off.

Strong safety Tuff Harris suffered a wrist injury while working on a special teams drill. He was in a sling following practice.

Defensive lineman Sunny Harris suffered a foot or ankle injury and also left early. In fact, he was taken out of the stadium before practice ended, so that doesn't appear to be good.

© I kept an eye on right tackle Flozell Adams at times tonight and he looked pretty good as a blocker. Adams has very good hands and that may help make up for the fact that his foot speed isn't quite what it once was.

© Of note for Steelers fans, punter Daniel Sepulveda handled all of the kickoff duties tonight.

Any word on Harris?

No goal line. Tomlin changed that to family day on Sunday because he didn't want to do what Cowher did.

Sepulveda looked good on kickoffs. Read my story in Saturday's OR to find out how good.
