Pittsburgh Steelers Injury Report: Troy Polamalu, James Harrison Miss Practice On Wednesday

The Pittsburgh Steelers are ailing as they go into the Mile High to face the Denver Broncos on Wild Card weekend, but both teams are stumbling into the postseason a bit. The Broncos lost three straight games to end the regular season and now they have to face the defending AFC champions, while the Steelers are missing numerous key players from their impressive lineup.

Star running back Rashard Mendenhall is missing the entire playoffs with a torn ACL, and that's not all. The Pittsburgh Steelers' full injury report can be found here, but it's shown below:

Full Participation

- OG Doug Legursky

Limited Participation

- OC Maurkice Pouncey

- QB Ben Roethlisberger

- LB LaMarr Woodley

Did Not Participation

- S Troy Polamalu

- LB James Harrison

- DE Brett Keisel

- RB Mewelde Moore

- DB Cortez Allen

It's a long list of key players for the Steelers. Their starting quarterback, starting strong safety, starting defensive end, starting right guard, starting center and two of their elite starting outside linebackers are all listed. Polamalu, Harrison and Keisel didn't even play, and Moore's absence is particularly notable with Mendenhall out. The Broncos are still going to face a major fight from the Steelers this weekend, but these certainly won't be the Steelers at full strength.
