Steelers' Harrison unlikely to play Broncos

CBSSports.com wire reports

PITTSBURGH -- Pro Bowl outside linebacker James Harrison did not practice for the second consecutive day Friday, making it unlikely he will play for the Steelers in the season opener at Denver Sunday.

Harrison was not removed from the physically unable to perform list until last week and made it through practices Monday and Wednesday in a limited capacity. Traditionally under coach Mike Tomlin, players who do not practice Friday do not play Sunday.

Harrison, however, was listed as questionable on the team's official injury report and the four-time All Pro termed himself as a "game-time decision." But he acknowledged that the knee, which underwent minor surgery last month, was experiencing pain and discomfort and that some soft tissue had yet to heal.

Also Friday, running back Rashard Mendenhall was listed as doubtful as he continues his recovery from a torn ACL. Isaac Redman said his ankle feels much better and indicated that he and Jonathan Dwyer would split carries against the Broncos.

Pittsburgh also signed cornerback DeMarcus Van Dyke on Friday and placed rookie guard David DeCastro on injured reserve. The first-round pick was designated as a player who could return after spending time on injured reserve, as per a new NFL rule.

DeCastro sustained a left knee injury during the team's third preseason game.
