Maybe the stars are aligning over Pittsburgh. The Steelers still have a chance to make the playoffs, and star safety Troy Polamalu appears to be making some progress in his return from a knee injury.

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin told reporters Tuesday Polamalu has been doing straight-line running in his rehabilitation from a sprained posterior cruciate ligament in his left knee, and could “maybe” return to practice this week. For now, he’ll be considered day to day. How Polamalu responds to the most recent workouts will determine his availability for Sunday’s crucial game against the Dolphins.

“The door isn’t closed on him participating,” Tomlin said.

Polamalu has missed the last six games — and 10 total this season — because of his troublesome left knee. He sprained the PCL in the knee on Nov. 15, after missing four games earlier this season with a torn medial collateral ligament in the same knee.

Tomlin also said RB Willie Parker (shoulder) will not practice to start the week, while OG Chris Kemoeatu (wrist) will hopefully practice after missing the last two games.

the way the steelers failed against clevlands wildcat plays, despite arians lie that the defense already knows how to stop it. i'd say troy needs to play this week if they wanna beat the phins.

With Ronnie Brown out the Pat White wildcat doesn't scare me as much.
