The Steelers lost two offensive linemen during Sunday night’s game against the Denver Broncos, but it appears both of them should be ready to go this Sunday against the New York Jets at Heinz Field.
Coach Mike Tomlin said guard Ramon Foster, who had an optical migraine that caused blurred vision, and tackle Marcus Gilbert, who hyperextended his knee, should play on Sunday. Gilbert might be limited in practice early in the week, but Tomlin said that won’t impact his ability to play.
“Gilbert may be limited in the early part of the week but it won’t stop him from participating in this upcoming game,” said Tomlin. “The other injuries are the minor bumps and bruises.”
In addition, linebacker James Harrison worked out on Monday and will run on Wednesday and they will evaluate his status based on how he responds.
“We will see where he is,” said Tomlin. ‘We will follow the same protocol we did with him last week. We will work him up to activity and see how his knee responds to that activity and let that be our guide in terms of his participation.”
In addition, safety Troy Polamalu has a calf strain that could limit him in practice early in the week, but he is expected to play.
