James Harrison and Troy Polamalu returned to practice on Wednesday.

Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison and strong safety Troy Polamalu both participated fully in practice on Wednesday. Both players are likely to play against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, according to head coach Mike Tomlin.

Harrison has been attempting to return to action from arthroscopic knee surgery and has been cautious about re-aggravating the injury. He has yet to play in a game this season but was able to participate in limited practice last week. Polamalu has been forced to sit out since sustaining a calf injury in the team's season opener against the Denver Broncos.

With the Steelers entering the week off a bye, Harrison and Polamalu will have the benefit of an extra week of rest and if things go according to plan, will be able to play in Week 5.

In addition, running back Rashard Mendenhall and offensive lineman Marcus Gilbert also fully participated in practice on Wednesday.
