PITTSBURGH - Looks like Troy Polamalu and James Harrison are good to go for the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Coach Mike Tomlin said Tuesday he's optimistic his two star defensive players to be ready when the Steelers (1-2) host the Philadelphia Eagles (3-1) on Sunday. Harrison hasn't played this season while recovering from left knee trouble while Polamalu has missed the last two games due to a strained right calf.

Both players practiced on Monday and barring a setback Pittsburgh could have its original starting defence available for the first time this season.

The Steelers have started 6-2 in each of Tomlin's five seasons and haven't lost back-to-back games since 2009. A loss would put them in an early hole behind AFC North front-runners Baltimore and Cincinnati, both 3-1.
