PITTSBURGH (AP) — Injured Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison worked out on Monday and coach Mike Tomlin says there’s a chance the four-time Pro Bowler could play in Sunday’s home opener against the New York Jets.
Harrison sat out the entire preseason while nursing a left knee injury. He underwent a minor procedure on the knee last month and didn’t play in a 31-19 season-opening loss at Denver.
Tomlin says Tuesday the team will monitor Harrison’s progress throughout the week. The Steelers do expect to have safety Ryan Clark back. Clark sat out the Broncos’ game as a precaution due to a sickle cell trait that makes it dangerous for him to exert himself at high altitude.
Pittsburgh expects to have starting right guard Ramon Foster and starting right tackle Marcus Gilbert for the Jets. Both players left the opener with minor injuries.
