PIttsburgh Steelers OLB James Harrison (knee) and S Troy Polamalu (calf) will be out in Week 3 against the Oakland Raiders, reports Gerry Dulac of the Sporting News. Both players sat out against the New York Jets in Week 2, and the Steelers will be giving them an extra week off with their bye coming in Week 4. Ryan Mundy will start in Polamalu's place again, with Chris Carter and Jason Worilds splitting snaps in Harrison's spot.
Fantasy Impact: The Steelers didn't need much help shutting down the Jets last week, and will be facing another weak offense in Oakland, so D/ST owners need not panic. Harrison's status is more worrisome, having yet to make his season debut after a slow rehab from knee surgery, but expect Polamalu to be back fresh after the bye week.
