The Steelers got their final practice of their bye week in today with one conspicuous absence - linebacker James Harrison.
After practicing Tuesday, Harrison left the team facility on Wednesday before the team completed its late morning session.
That doesn't bode well, but it's not crushing, either.
It might come down to pain management for Harrison, who has shown in the past that he has a high tolerance.
On the positive side, strong safety Troy Polamalu was out there again for the second consecutive day and appears to be on track to play when the team returns to the field Oct. 7 against Philadelphia.
@ Ryan Mundy got rung up to the tune of $21,000 for his hit on Darrius Heyward-Bey last weekend in Oakland.
Given the one-game suspension of Denver's Joe Mays this week for illegal hits in back-to-back games, Mundy could be looking at a similar penalty for another illegal hit this season.
