    BREAKING NEWS! Steelers report no new injuries

    Finally the Steelers are catching a break this season

    PITTSBURGH _ As the Steelers try to win two straight games for the first time this season, they will do so with basically the same health report they had Sunday when they routed the Kansas City Chiefs.

    On Tuesday when coach Bill Cowher issued his preliminary injury report for this Sunday's game against in Atlanta, he announced that backup outside linebacker James Harrison (ankle) won't play and that starting outside linebacker Joey Porter (hamstring) probably won't play. Neither James Harrison nor Porter didn't play in the 45-7 romp over the Chiefs. While James Harrison has already been ruled out this week, Porter is listed as doubtful.

    That means Arnold Harrison, a first-year pro who spent last season in the Steelers' practice squad, is expected to make his second straight start.

    Listed as questionable are starting guard Kendall Simmons (heel) and rookie wide receiver Willie Reid (foot).

    Simmons missed Sunday's easy win over the Chiefs with a bizarre "burn" of his left heel. The wound on Simmons' heel is a result of him falling asleep with a cold-pack treatment bag on is foot last week. Simmons, who's a diabetic, won't return to practice until the wound is completely healed.

    In the event Simmons doesn't play in Atlanta, second-year pro Chris Kemoeatu will make his second straight start.

    Reid suffered a mid-foot sprain two weeks ago in a loss in San Diego.

    Listed as probable are cornerback Deshea Townsend (hamstring), fullback Dan Kreider (ankle) and center Jeff Hartings (knee). All three are expected to play Sunday against the Falcons (3-2).

    The Steelers (2-3) are in third place in the AFC North Division behind the Baltimore Ravens (4-2) and Cincinnati Bengals (3-2).

    Well it's about damn time ! Personally I'd like to see Chris K get another start at guard and see how he does. The falcon defense are no slouches so we'll get a good test against them.
