The Pittsburgh Steelers Thursday practice has now been completed as they continue to prepare to play the Baltimore Ravens Saturday night at Heinz Field and once again running back Le’Veon Bell (knee) failed to practice.
Bell, who suffered a hyperextended knee this past Sunday, told the media Thursday that while he feels good, he did not try running during practice.
Linebacker James Harrison (illness) and quarterback Landry Jones (illness) were both added to the injury report Thursday after failing to practice. It appears as though the flu bug as finally arrived.
After sitting out sick Wednesday, tackle Mike Adams (illness) returned to practice Thursday. Tight end Heath Miller (not injury related) and quarterback Ben Roethlisberger (not injury related) also practiced fully after being given Wednesday off.
Nose tackle Steve McLendon (shoulder), tight end Michael Palmer (groin), safety Troy Polamalu (knee) and cornerback Ike Taylor (shoulder, forearm) also practiced fully Thursday. Defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau said after practice that he expects Polamalu to be ready to play Saturday night after missing the last two games with a knee injury.
