James Harrison says he won't play this week

Pittsburgh Steelers All-Pro outside linebacker James Harrison said he won't play Sunday night against the Baltimore Ravens after suffering an orbital fracture earlier this season against the Houston Texans. "Saw the doctor today," Harrison wrote. "Looks like I won't be playing this weekend but at least I'm cleared for practice."

A former NFL Defensive Player of the Year, Harrison broke the bone around his eye against the Texans on Oct. 2.

"Worst case scenario, I'll be back after the bye for sure," Harrison wrote on his Facebook account.

The Steelers are severely banged up at linebacker since LaMarr Woodley could miss the game with a left hamstring injury and James Farrior may be out with a torn calf muscle.

It's a tough development for the Steelers (5-2) in a pivotal AFC North showdown against the Ravens (5-2).
