Neal, Baker Listed as Questionable
Steelers' Polamalu Doubful, LBs Added
There was little change on New England's injury report Friday. Guard Stephen Neal, who was limited in practice participation Thursday was limited Friday as well and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game. Neal has been listed most of the season with a similar injury and he did not finish last Sunday's game against Baltimore after not being listed for two straight weeks.
Safety Rashad Baker is also listed as questionable after being limited Thursday and held out completely Friday.
The Patriots did not practice Wednesday.
Pittsburgh safety Troy Polamalu did not practice at all this week, and he's doubtful for Sunday. Running back Najeh Davenport, who did not practice Wednesday, participated fully in practice Thursday and Friday and is probable. Wide receiver Hines Ward, who did not practice Wednesday (team decision) was not listed Thursday or Friday.
Pittsburgh added three linebackers to the injury report Friday, none of whom were listed earlier in the week. Starting outside linebacker James Harrison did not practice Friday (family issue), but he is listed as probable. Meanwhile, backup outside linebackers Andre Frazier (groin) and LaMarr Woodley (hamstring) are listed as questionable.
With Polamalu likely on the sideline, Anthony Smith, who guaranteed a Pittsburgh win, and Tyrone Carter will start at safety.
