Now, the updates for the Pittsburgh Steelers:


T Max Starks(illness)

This is the first time he has hit the list this week, but illness doesn’t sound like anything major.


RB Jonathan Dwyer(foot)
DE Evander Hood(back)

Dwyer did not practice yesterday, and Hood was limited. Dwyer is expected to get an increased workload against the Jets, despite Rashard Mendenhall’s full participation in practice, so the Jets need to be ready for this guy.

James Harrison hasn’t practiced all week, but he thinks he will be ready to play on Sunday. Troy Polamalu has not practiced either, so the Jets could get a big break if the Steelers don’t have either of these guys available. A tough team gets tougher if one, or both of these guys are active on Sunday.
