PITTSBURGH — Steelers running back Najee Harris did not practice in Wednesday’s first session of preparation for their playoff game against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Harris suffered a right elbow injury in the Steelers’ Week 18 win over the Baltimore Ravens and was expected to be limited in the early portion of this week’s practice. Benny Snell Jr. replaced Harris when he missed time with the injury against the Ravens and would be expected to start in his place if he can’t go on Sunday in Kansas City.
Cornerback Arthur Maulet was a limited participant with a concussion suffered against Baltimore. He remains in the NFL concussion protocol, but the fact that he was able to practice on the first session of the week is a positive sign. Maulet was replaced by Tre Norwood as slot corner, with Cam Sutton moving inside as well, at times.
Left tackle Dan Moore Jr. was a full participant in practice after missing the Ravens game with an ankle injure. Center Kendrick Green (calf) and right guard Trai Turner (knee) were not listed on the report, so the team’s offensive line appears to be rounding into health.
Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was a limited participant on Wednesday. He does not typically practice on Wednesdays, but increased his workload with the postseason looming.
Inside linebacker Robert Spillane was also not listed on the report, after being expected by Mike Tomlin on Tuesday to be limited in the early portion of the week.
