He didn't really want to talk about it, but James Harrison was a surprising participant at practice today for the Steelers as they got back to work following their bye.
The Steelers remain optimistic that Harrison, who hasn't played yet this season, will be ready to play against Philadelphia Sunday.
Harrison practiced for the first time since training camp began last Tuesday, but sat out again on Wednesday as he continues to try to work his way back onto the field following knee surgery in August.
Coupled with the return of Troy Polamalu, who again practiced Monday, the Steelers could be getting two key veterans back.
@ It should come as no surprise to the readers of this blog, but Rashard Mendenhall is also expected to return against the Eagles.
As I have been saying for several weeks, the Steelers were shooting for a return date of after the bye for Mendenhall, who has not played since tearing his ACL last Jan. 1.
