The Steelers wrapped up final practice preparations on Saturday with both defensive end Travis Kirschke (calf) and linebacker Lawrence Timmons (ankle) being unable to practice once again. Neither player has practiced since being injured versus Minnesota. Both have been officially listed as doubtful on the injury report, but it is highly unlikely either will play. Safety Ryan Clark (illness) was officially listed as questionable on the injury report and has practiced fully everyday this week. No official word will be given on his playing status until a few hours before kick-off.
For the Broncos on Saturday, tackle Ryan Harris (toe) and defensive end Ryan McBean (knee) both sat out practice again and both have been listed as out on the injury report. Safety Josh Barrett (hamstring) and safety David Bruton (groin) both practiced fully on Saturday and are listed as probable.
