Philly's Harrison is among Hall finalists
Michael Strahan also was selected a modern-era finalist along with Charles Haley, Kevin Greene, Andre Reed, Jerome Bettis, Tim Brown, John Lynch, Will Shields, Aeneas Williams, Morten Andersen, and Edward DeBartolo Jr.
Senior nominees Ray Guy and Claude Humphrey were announced in August.
The 46-member selection committee will vote Feb. 1 in New York, with a minimum 80 percent required for induction.
The modern-era finalists were chosen by the selection committee Thursday night from a list of 126 nominees who were reduced to 25 semifinalists. Each finalist received a minimum vote of 80 percent.
To be eligible, modern-era players and coaches must have last played or coached more than five seasons ago.
Smith expects to play
Panthers wide receiver Steve Smith said his left knee feels "fine" and he hopes to be ready to play Sunday against San Francisco in the NFC divisional playoffs.
"I will be all right," Smith said after Friday's practice. "I should be OK."
Panthers coach Ron Rivera listed Smith, running back Jonathan Stewart, and defensive tackle Colin Cole as questionable - or 50 percent - for Sunday on the team's injury report.
"My gut says he'll play," Rivera said of Smith, the team's all-time leading receiver.
Smith sprained his posterior cruciate ligament in a Week 16 win over New Orleans and has not played since for the Panthers (12-4).
Smith, who has been coy about the injury all week and pulled some bizarre numbers out of thin air to describe his health, looked up at his jersey number and joked there's an "89 percent" chance he'll play against the 49ers.
