That's all that was stated and the PPG comes out with an article titled "Polamalu's shoulder a concern for Steelers". He's questionable. Instead of speculating (PPG) and turning on the alarm sirens, why not take the wait and see approach?
Trust me I'm far from jumping off a bridge about Troy's shoulder. I read the article that you are talking about. I figured it was the media making it a bigger deal then it really was. Just saying I'm more worried about Troy then Ben at this point. Thats all bro. I expect Ben to start vs the Jaqs. It just seems at times that most attention is focused on Ben and his injuries when other players might have nagging little injuries.

Hell we need something to fill between all this time from the opener to Monday. This break between games really sucks. I have to sit through a whole another day of watching other teams on Sunday. I can't wait for Monday.

I will take the wait and see approach, but the story does concern me a bit. I would be suprised though if it was a major injury, you would think that if he can't play then he would be listed as doubtful or out. I mean it's not like BB coaches this team. No need to lie.

By no means was I meaning you. I'm talking about the PPG/ESPN.

If it was a major injury (dislocated shoulder/pulled ligaments etc.), I wouldn't have expected him to come back and play in the second half of the Dolphins game......and pick off a pass. That's why I'm not putting much stock into these stories/rumors.

I'll bet (not my house) that he will be playing come monday night. He knows that if he can get through Jax and then Cincy that he will have 14 days off to rest.

I agree, a dislocated shoulder is one of the most painful things in sports. He would not have been able to continue like he did if he had that type of injury. I see him at maybe 80%, but you have to ask yourself, is Troy better then half the other SS even at 80%?

sundays are definitely the best day of the week during football season. it sucks that through the 1st month this year the steelers will only be on once. (bye week, week 4 i.e. black sunday)

i cant complain about the primetime games though. (then again i dont have season tickets with work early tuesday morning)

Good question. I thought Logan looked damn good during preseason. I would still rather have a 80% (if that's even the case) Polamalu out there.
