Tribune-Review reporter Mark Kaboly tweeted Monday both Troy Polamalu and James Harrison participated in practice, but he added the note Wednesday is probably more indicative of whether they will participate in Sunday's game.
James Harrison and Troy Polamalu practiced today. Lets see if they are back out there Wednesday before getting too excited.— Mark Kaboly (@MarkKaboly_Trib) October 1, 2012
Typically, players have Tuesday off, but given the Steelers had the last four days off due to the bye week, they may have scheduled time Tuesday as well.
Monday probably wasn't the day to put in their game plan in preparation for Philadelphia, but more of a day to work on technique and individual drills. The fact Polamalu and Harrison participated means, at this point, they aren't ruled out.
They've practiced during the week before and haven't played.
Given the offensive firepower possessed by the Eagles, it would certainly be helpful to have them healthy and in the game. If not, they'll have to make do with Ryan Mundy at safety and the Chris Carter/Jason Worilds Experience at right outside linebacker.
