I know he will comeback strong. He is just that good. I worry about him becoming injury prone. Lets hope i worry too much.

Troy is a tough, tough guy. He's probably the most physically conditioned guy in the league. I'm sure he'll spring back from this just fine.

Becoming?

He has been injured quite a bit throughout his career.

He plays about 3 inches taller and 40 pounds heavier than his real height and weight...

That kind of play will do damage to a body.

i wonder if he has been training wrong...

you know how one muscle is stronger than the other and the other muscle has to compensate.

just a thought

How would that prevent an injury? I am sure he is training correct, they are at the highest level of play..

RushHard,
I doubt it. He's got a very unorthodox training regimen. If memory serves, he never lifts a weight heavier than 20 lbs.

Troy's style of play guarantees that he's going to be injury prone, and he knows that. It's the only negative to what he does, and we all have to just learn to accept that. And yes, like Goslash said, Troy's training program is fine, ive seen other videos of him doing a bunch of muscle confusion exercises as well.

I thought so too when I first heard about it. He conditions almost more like an olympic gymnast than an NFL player.
From what I hear, it extends to everything, including his diet and even his morning shower.
I don't think there's anybody else in the league who conditions this way (yet), but it definitely gets results on the field.

I would hardly categorize what Alge Crumpler did as a "cheap shot."

Didn't we have this discussion in 2007 and before the start of last season, when more than a few people not only thought he was injury-prone, but was washed-up to boot? Need I remind you what he ultimately did last season?

What happened this year was a freak accident with Crumpler falling on his leg and then re-injuring the same knee when it likely wasn't quite fully healed from the first injury. He will rehab the injury in the off-season and then come back next season ready to hand the rest of the league their collective asses.

I believe I was told (maybe by someone on this Forum?) that Polamalu works under the watchful eye of the father of former Raider QB Todd Marinovich, who uses many unconventional methods

regardless of his training, you'd have to think that his reckless-but-legal style of play will eventually result in somebody getting hurt, and sooner-or-later it'll be Troy

Troy didn't get a wear and tear injury. It got crushed by another player. You can't condition to prevent that.

algie crumpler is fat, their is no forgiving for that lol.

ESPN is now reporting Troy as Questionable and could NOT play. I think it's bothering him more than he wants people to think and will hurt it 10X more if it isn't 100%. I say sit em.

He should have had it operated on a long time ago.

From everything I've heard, you do not want to operate on the PCL if you can help it. You can actually make the problem worse. So they mostly avoid it unless it's severely torn.

I have the utmost respect for Polamalu and think he's a great player, but his style of play is catching up to him. Same thing is happening down here in Baltimore. The way Ed's flown around the field for the past 7 years has left him with a nagging neck and hip. It's sad to see these guys get hurt, since they're so much fun to watch. Hopefully Troy can bounce back next year (maybe playoffs) and Ed can help us with a playoff run.

Like others have stated in this thread his style of football is what is getting him hurt. I know it didn't have anything to do with Crumpler falling on him but the man plays hard and he is going to get injured from time to time.

I'm thinking it's not so much the injury at this point but the muscle atrophy from not using it for that long. I'm sure that leg and kee joint is weak from not using it for the majority of 4 months.

A move to FS might be in the best interest of Troy to extend his career. I say move him to FS and just let him be ball hawk. Troy in my opinion can FS no problem. Then look to draft a SS and yes I know finding a SS like Troy would be impossible but I would like to see Troy play a long time. One more thing please don't have Troy on the field goal block team. Troy picked up the blocked field goal against the Titans leading to Crumpler to fall on his leg.

Troy needs to cut his hair and tie it around his knee for luck.
