James Harrison Says He Practiced Fully On Tuesday

Earlier today it was reported that Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison (knee) was able to practice, but no word was given as to what extent of work he was given.

Harrison removed all of the mystery by taking to Twitter Tuesday afternoon to say that he indeed did practiced fully today, and that he hopes everything goes well on Wednesday.

Obviously the key now is to see if the knee handles the Tuesday work and if it swells over the next 24 hours. If Harrison is able to go fully on Wednesday as well, that would be very encouraging news.

The Steelers linebacker had the procedure done on his knee in mid August, but has been unable to practice fully since that time.

The Steelers are on a bye this week, which means that their next game is not until a week from this coming Sunday at home and hopefully that is when Harrison will make his season debut.

    I’m a little puzzled why they’d let him practice fully today and not wait another week before getting him out there. Maybe do some light practice this week, with some running and stuff and then a full practice next week.

    Maybe he was mostly ready last week and they already held him out an extra week? And now he needs to knock the rust off or something?

    Any word on Troy? Mendenhall?

    Bone spur should have been removed in June when it was discovered. I don’t care if I’m not a doctor…it wasn’t going to just disappear from what I understand about it, so it was either going to nag him all-year or he was going to need it removed…so I call major ball drop by medical and training staff that his 8 week recovery wasn’t in mid-june to mid-august
