Steelers Injury Report: Friday Week 1 Denver Broncos – Mendenhall Doubtful, Harrison Questionable
The Pittsburgh Steelers wrapped up their final practice preparations on Friday for their Sunday night opener against the Denver Broncos and the final injury report of the week is now out.
Linebacker James Harrison (knee) did not practice on Friday and is listed as questionable on the Friday injury report. Harrison told the media that he was a gametime decision, but all signs point to him not playing Sunday night. Second year linebacker Chris Carter will likely start at right outside linebacker in place of Harrison.
Running back Baron Batch (groin) is also listed as questionable.
Running back Rashard Mendenhall (knee) is listed as doubtful for the game as he continues to work his way back from his ACL injury. He has been practicing, but still appears to be a few weeks away from contributing.
Running back Isaac Redman (ankle), defensive end Brett Keisel (ankle), linebacker Larry Foote (ankle), and linebacker Jason Worilds (knee) all practiced fully on Friday and are listed as probable.
Guard David DeCastro (knee), linebacker Stevenson Sylvester (knee) and safety Ryan Clark (coaches decision) have long been ruled out for the Sunday night game.
For the Broncos on Friday, guard Chris Kuper (forearm) is out.
