The Pittsburgh Steelers were back at work on Wednesday in preparation for their Sunday game against the Philadelphia Eagles. This early injury report for Wednesday is now out and according to Bob Labriola on Twitter, safety Troy Polamalu (calf), linebacker James Harrison (knee), tackle Marcus Gilbert (groin) and running back Rashard Mendenhall (knee) all participated fully.
Head coach Mike Tomlin said during his Tuesday press conference that Polamalu, Harrison and Mendenhall also worked on Monday as well without limitations and he gave the appearance that all three would likely be available to play Sunday. Thursday will be the key day for Harrison as he has yet to practice fully on back-to-back days yet this season. If the Steelers linebacker is unable to go fully on Thursday, it will likely be a sign that he will miss his fourth straight game this season.
All signs point to Mendenhall being able to make his season debut against the Eagles and for Polamalu to return to the lineup after missing the last two games with a calf injury. There is no word on linebacker Stevenson Sylvester (knee) and that likely means that he too will likely make his season debut on Sunday in addition. The Steelers third year linebacker is expected to contribute on special teams only, however.
