Steelers LB James Harrison, S Troy Polamalu will be game-time decisions

The Jets have already said cornerback Darrelle Revis won't play against the Steelers. But things aren't so peachy with Pittsburgh's defense either. The Steelers might be without both linebacker James Harrison @jharrison9292 and safety Troy Polamalu @tpolamalu. Both are listed as questionable for the game, but neither player practiced on Friday. Harrison didn't play in Week 1 and his surgically repaired knee still isn't 100 percent. He didn't practice at all this week. Meanwhile, Polamalu missed his second consecutive practice today because of a calf injury.

Fantasy Analysis:

They will be game-time decisions, but the feeling from different beat writers is that Harrison and Polamalu will not play in this game. Another big stat line might be in store for Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez @Mark_Sanchez, but he's still a clear QB2. The possible absence of Polamalu really affects the Steelers' run defense, so Shonn Greene should be upgraded slightly. It's still Shonn Greene.
