Miller practices, Polamalu does not

Heath Miller returned to practice today as the Steelers held their first and only full workout in preparation for Thursday's game against Carolina though today was more of a glorified walkthrough than anything.

The Steelers will have another walkthrough Wednesday.

Troy Polamalu did not practice, leaving him unlikely to play against the Panthers.

Aaron Smith said that he has one more test to undergo - early next - week before he can be cleared to return to full action.

Jonathan Scott was back at practice today and took the majority of the reps at left tackle.

After re-watching Sunday's game against the Jets Monday night, Scott was actually solid in that game, outside of the missed block on Jason Taylor that led to a safety. But that play can be blamed more on the call itself than the execution.

Ben Roethlisberger said today that he will continue to wear a visor to protect his broken nose for the remainder of this season.

Personally, I wish they would hold off playing Aaron and Troy until the playoffs.

The healthier they are means a better performance from both which is beneficial to the team, since I personally think they both are the heartbeat of the defense.

polamalu needs to sit, we need him for the playoffs.

i'd rather have the #6 seed with a healthy troy than the #2 with him out for the remainder of the season/postseason.

besides, we've been dangerous as the road dogs and disappointing as the home favorites. #6 seed? no problem if our big players are healthy.
