Even coming off of the bye week the Pittsburgh Steelers will have some concern on the defensive front as LaMarr Woodley, James Harrison and Troy Polamalu have been banged up recently. Woodely is likely not going to play against the Chiefs and if he is out it would be Woodely's third straight missed game. Woodley is listed as a limited participant for practice, but he has been extremely limited in non-contact drills.
Polamalu participated fully in practice on Friday and he is listed as probable with the ribs injury sustained during the Steelers' Week 10 win over Cincinnati. Harrison was limited in practice and is officially listed probable with a back injury but he is expected to play.
DID NOT PARTICIPATE IN PRACTICE: Linebacker Stevenson Sylvester (calf, questionable).
LIMITED PARTICIPATION IN PRACTICE: Wide receiver Arnaz Battle (hamstring, questionable), linebacker James Harrison (back, probable), linebacker LaMarr Woodley (hamstring, questionable).
FULL PARTICIPATION IN PRACTICE: Safety Troy Polamalu (ribs, probable), quarterback Ben Roethlisberger (right thumb, probable), wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders (knee, probable).
