Update: It would appear the Steelers will definitely be without the services of cornerback Ike Taylor when they take on the Falcons Sunday. He was listed as "doubtful" on the initial injury report released Friday. Some media accounts (notably David Todd of 970 ESPN in Pittsburgh) have suggested James Harrison will not play either, although Steel City Insider's Jim Wexell expects him to play.

Todd Tweeted he expects Dri Archer to be inactive for his second straight game.

The Pittsburgh Steelers have released their final injury report before the team plane takes off Saturday for Georgia to face the Atlanta Falcons.

There were no surprises on the injury report, but Ike Taylor (forearm, shoulder) is listed as doubtful, while James Harrison (knee) is listed as questionable. Both players seem unlikely to suit up on Sunday for the Steelers, especially Taylor.

The "doubtful" tag is given to a player who stands a 30-percent chance of playing in the upcoming game, while questionable typically means the player has a 50-50 shot at suiting up.

Other than Taylor and Harrison, all other players on the injury report were listed as probable, which includes Maurkice Pouncey (ankle) who was limited in practice on Thursday. Pouncey was a full participant in practice on Friday and he's expected to start Sunday vs. the Falcons.

Game time on Sunday is 1 p.m. ET at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta, GA.
