A surprise addition to the Steelers injury report today (Friday, Christmas Day) was James Harrison. After not being on the report Wed. or Thursday, he missed practice today. He is listed as questionable with a biceps injury. 

With Troy Polamalu and Chris Kemoeatu out for sure. Not having Harrison there would really hurt. Do you slide Lawrence Timmons outside and put Keyaron Fox on the inside? Even if he does play, does a diminished Harrison severely dampen our chances Sunday?

We need this game and we need Harrison to win it. My gut tells me James will suck it up and be out there giving it everything he has. I hope it is enough to lead the Steelers to a victory.

But isn't that the story of this season. Every time the Steelers get a little bit of daylight, a dark cloud hovers over.
