  • Steelers' Harrison will not play Sunday

    http://www.post-gazette.com/stories/...sunday-652303/

    Pro Bowl linebacker James Harrison did not practice for the second day in a row and will not play in Sunday night's season opener in Denver.
    He will be replaced in the starting lineup by Chris Carter, who has been working at right outside linebacker since minicamp because of injuries to Harrison (knee) and top backup Jason Worilds (wrist).
    The Steelers have not officially listed Harrison's status for the game. They will do that later today.
    Harrison returned to practice for the first time since last season on Monday. If he didn't have any setbacks with his knee, the Steelers intended to start him against the Broncos.
    Previously, Harrison made two other attempts to come back from his injury -- once at minicamp, once at training camp -- but each time his knee swelled when he tried to cut on it.

      Karma is a witch

      Maybe he shouldn't have taken out Decker's knee last post season

      Sorry but that hit still bothers me. Although it was within the rules there are degrees of class -and that hit lacked respect for opponents.
      The beatings will continue until morale improves....

        That was a clean hit on Decker.

          Certainly helps if he doesn't play, but i'm sure if we win, it will be b/c they were so banged up.

            I got a text from ESPN saying he's a game time decision.

              clean -no

              legal -yes

              typical of Harrison -yes

              I know I cant win this argument based on NFL rules but like I said, there are degrees of class and Harrison will knock you out of the game if he can - it's just how he plays.

              If he was a Bronco I'd probably love it (just being honest) but he's not so I'll continue to look at it objectively

              In the spirit of 'defenseless receiver' rule, that's outside the lines. Having said this I'm not looking for more hankies thrown on plays (or one to cry into) -just sayin'

                Not exactly good news, If we win people will say it was because they did not have there best players on the field. I would rather we win while they have no excuses. I am not naive though, I know there is always an excuse.

                  Me too, doesn't look like he will play though, guess we'll see.

                    Harrison hasn't really been that great at rushing the passer the past few years. Woodley is the guy we really need to worry about, although Chris Carter was a pretty good pass rusher in college so I wouldn't overlook him either. I think lose Sean Spence hurts more than Harrison right now.

                      Darn, I was hoping to see more missed assignments and overpersuits.

                      His replacement will probably keep his assignments.

                        Can we ever say a team is at full (100%) strength?

                        There is not one player on that field that is not injured to some extent. There is not one team out there that doesn't have players starting because someone else is on the mend. Good teams find a way to win in spite of adversity and overcome the odds with hard play and smart decisions.

                        I hope we are that team

                            Anyone being injured is inherently bad news. I don't like Harrison much, but I don't wish injury on him.

                              I’m sure everyone would love that as long as we win and Peyton does not get hurt. Keep in mind just who James Harrison is. Ala …

                              And this way he won't try to take off Manning's head, and just pay the 50k fine.....
                              One reason why there is so much interest in this game is to see how Peyton does. Unfortunately, there are far too many out there that actually want to see Manning get his head taken off. Also, the notoriety of “Bounty-gate” in New Orleans did not automatically stop players and teams from wanting to hurt opposing quarterbacks. How many here would just love to see Wolfe-Von-Doom inflict a little pain on Big Ben? Ask yourself how much you would like to see. (I, personally, hate Pittsburgh and would love to see “Big Ben” so terrified he was afraid to step back on the field to finish the game.)

                              You make some good points. However, all it takes is one quick look at last year’s Indianapolis Colts to see just how devastating the loss of one player can be. Another aspect of this is that many of “Tebow’s wins” last year (and I say that very factitiously) came against teams decimated by injury and the Broncos won the AFCW at 8-8, which was an entire division also decimated by injury.

                              One thing this thread does bring to my attention is how healthy the Broncos are entering this particular year compared to those of the past. I do not remember a year in recent history when the Broncos were able to start off in this kind of shape physically.
