Harrison (back) is listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Titans.

EDGE Analysis

Harrison has missed the last two games with this back injury, but even when he's active, he is very limited in his defensive snap count. Therefore, there's no need to rush back the 39-year-old linebackers, so don't be surprised if he spends another game on the sidelines.

Harrison (back) was limited in practice Tuesday, Ray Fittipaldo of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

EDGE Analysis

Harrison has missed the past two contests as he continues to nurse a back injury. The 39-year-old has only played in four contests this season due to various injuries so it seems unlikely the Steelers would rush him back for Thursday night's game unless he is completely healthy.

Harrison (back) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Colts.

EDGE Analysis

Harrison missed the Steelers' Week 7 victory over the Lions before heading into the bye week. The veteran was unable to recover during that extra time off and will miss his second consecutive game. He will now shoot for a Week 11 return.

Harrison has a back injury and did not participate at the Steelers' practice Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

It's unclear when Harrison sustained the injury as the Steelers are coming out of their bye week. The 39-year-old has battled multiple ailments and played in only three games this season, recording three solo tackles and a sack. The veteran linebacker is illustrating major wear-and-tear in his 15th NFL season and remains off the IDP radar.

Harrison collected three tackles (all solo), including a sack in Pittsburgh's 19-13 win over Kansas City.

EDGE Analysis

The 39-year-old veteran has been limited this season, but his late fourth quarter sack helped seal the win over the Chiefs. It's nice to see that Harrison still has some gas left in the tank, although not enough to warrant IDP consideration.

Harrison is active for Sunday's matchup with the Chiefs, Joe Rutter of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.

EDGE Analysis

Harrison has only suited up for two games this season, logging a combined seven defensive snaps. It's clear the Steelers are shifting their focus to talented rookie first-round pick, T.J. Watt, so Harrison shouldn't be considered an IDP threat anymore.

Harrison (coach's decision) is listed as inactive for Sunday's game against the Jaguars, Ray Fittipaldo of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

EDGE Analysis

Harrison couldn't play in Week 4 due to illness, but now he's seemingly being left off for other reasons since he didn't miss any practices all week. He's been quite limited behind rookie first-round pick T.J. Watt anyways, so this shouldn't throw a wrench into fantasy owners' plans.

Harrison (illness) wasn't listed on Wednesday's injury report.

EDGE Analysis

Harrison couldn't play against the Ravens in Week 4, but barring any setbacks, he'll be ready for Sunday's game against the Jaguars. Still, he's playing second fiddle to T.J. Watt in the Steelers' linebackers unit, meaning he likely won't fetch enough snaps to be fantasy relevant.

Harrison is inactive due to illness for Sunday's game against Baltimore, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Harrison missed practice Friday due to his undisclosed illness, and he has yet to recover. His absence could lead to some extra snaps for Arthur Moats behind starting outside linebacker T.J. Watt.
