Pretty much everyone was left on the table as a possibility to play Sunday against the Broncos by head coach Mike Tomlin Tuesday, including running back Rashard Mendenhall.
I wouldn't expect Mendenhall to play - I'm still hearing they want to wait until after the bye week - but Mendenhall has looked good in practice coming off the ACL injury and is making the decision a tough one.
James Harrison, on the other hand, made it through practice Monday OK and looks as if he will play.
@ Tomlin said Keenan Lewis will be the starting CB, while Cortez Allen will be the third corner.
That's not exactly surprising. Allen has plenty of upside, but still needs some polish.
@ It's beginning to look like Mike Wallace will start over Emmanuel Sanders. That's a surprising move by Tomlin, who usually likes to send messages through his actions.
I'm sure the fact that Wallace spent all day Friday and Saturday with receivers coach Scottie Montgomery had something to do with the decision.
@ The Steelers, by the way, continue to try to bang out a new deal for Wallace.
This could go down to the wire. A couple of years ago, the Steelers had strong safety Troy Polamalu sign his new deal on the plane before takeoff for their regular season opener.
