The big news out of Tuesday's press conference was that Mike Tomlin only expects James Harrison to miss four weeks after having surgery to repair a broken orbital bone last week.
In fact, Tomlin wouldn't rule out Harrison returning sooner than that, saying if anyone could do so, Harrison would.
In other news, only Harrison and Aaron Smith have been declared out for Sunday's game against Jacksonville.
Mewelde Moore, Jason Worilds, Marcus Gilbert, Casey Hampton and Chris Kemoeatu are questionable.
Maurkice Pouncey, Cortez Allen, Rashed Mendenhall and Ben Roethlisberger are all expected to be available to play.
Interestingly enough, Tomlin didn't automatically declare Kemoeatu or Mendenhall the starters when they return, saying he would wait to see how they look in practice.
In addition, Tomlin said that William Gay and Keenan Lewis will continue to start ahead of Bryant McFadden.
"We're not going to fix it if it's not broken," Tomlin said.
The same goes for Lawrence Timmons at outside linebacker, even if Worilds is ready to go.
