Pittsburgh Steelers OLB James Harrison (knee) missed his fourth straight day of practice, and the team does not expect him to be ready for Week 2 against the New York Jets, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. Harrison has been slow to recover from a knee scope surgery during the preseason.
Fantasy Impact: The Steelers sorely missed Harrison Sunday Night as Peyton Manning dissected their defense with little to no pass rush (five QB hurries, two sacks), and backup Chris Carter was a non-factor with only one tackle in 46-of-59 defensive snaps. With safety Troy Polamalu also a possibility to sit out Sunday, the Jets offensive skill players are looking like more appealing fantasy plays.
