The Pittsburgh Steelers have listed James Harrison, Troy Polamalu, Stevenson Sylvester and Marcus Gilbert as probable for Week 5. Running back Rashard Mendenhall will be making his season debut.

Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison and safety Troy Polamalu have both been listed as probable for Sunday's Week 5 contest against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Harrison has been out of action since undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery in mid-August to repair his left knee, while Polamalu has been out since sustaining a calf injury in the season opener against the Denver Broncos. Both players returned to practice on Wednesday and have been able to fully participate in all drills.

However, defensive coordinator Dick Lebeau stated that while they may start, they may not play the entire game.

In addition, linebacker Stevenson Sylvester and right tackle Marcus Gilbert have been listed as probable. Gilbert has been out since injuring his left knee in the season opener.

Running back Rashard Mendenhall was not included on the injury report and will be making his season debut on Sunday. He has been out since suffering a torn ACL at the end of last season.
