Pittsburgh Steelers OLB James Harrison (knee) and SS Troy Polamalu (calf) have been officially ruled out for Sunday's game against the Oakland Raiders, reports Mark Kaboly of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. Harrison is still slow recovering from offseason knee surgery, while Polamalu has been out with an undisclosed calf injury. Both players were inactive in Week 2.
Fantasy Impact: The Steelers are being cautious with their injured players this week, using the early Week 4 bye week to get veterans an extra week off, so both these guys should be ready to go again in Week 5. For PIT D/ST owners, Oakland's offense has had a horrendous start, so don't worry about this defense missing its two biggest playmakers for now.
