Elbow injury lingering
Coach Mike Tomlin said Harris' elbow injury is expected to "slow him in the early portion of the week" as the Steelers prepare for Sunday's wild-card game at Kansas City, Dale Lolley of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.
Harris got dinged up during the early stages of this past Sunday's eventual 16-13 overtime win at Baltimore but was able to gut out the issue, finishing with 15 touches for 55 yards on a season-low 53 percent share of offensive snaps. Tomlin's comments indicate Harris will be at least a limited participant Wednesday and may even kick off the week with a DNP, but where the running back stands by Friday will have more bearing on his availability for Sunday, per Brooke Pryor of ESPN.com. Benny Snell is the next player up in the Steelers backfield if Harris isn't his normal self this weekend.
