PITTSBURGH -- The Steelers will be at full strength on Sunday for the first time this season.

Running back Rashard Mendenhall, linebacker James Harrison and safety Troy Polamalu completed a full week of practice on Friday. They are all listed as probable and will play Sunday for the Steelers (1-2) against the Philadelphia Eagles (3-1).

Mendenhall and Harrison will make their season debuts; Polamalu will play for the first time since a season-opening loss in Denver.

Harrison had minor surgery on his left knee in August and Polamalu has had a calf injury. Each has been named NFL Defensive Player of the Year, and they have combined to be named All Pro nine times. Their returns are welcomed on a defence that has blown fourth-quarter leads during each of its losses.

Harrison has not played in a game of any kind since January, so his snaps will be limited.

A two-time 1,000-yard rusher, Mendenhall has recovered from tearing his right ACL Jan. 1. He has been practicing for more than three weeks.
