Default 3 expected to miss Sunday

Do not like this news at all....

3 Steelers starters expected to miss Bengals game
Friday, November 30, 2007
By Gerry Dulac, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

The Steelers are expected to be without three starters for the second game in a row when they play the Cincinnati Bengals at Heinz Field Sunday night.

Tyrone Carter is expected to start his second game in a row at strong safety for injured Troy Polamalu (knee), even though Polamalu did some light work in practice for the first time this week.

Polamalu, though, did not work with the first team and was limited to merely trotting around the field. He is not expected to play along with wide receiver Santonio Holmes (ankle sprain) and left tackle Marvel Smith (back).

Holmes and Smith have not practiced all week.

these are three huge injuries for us. You have to wonder if tomlin is being cautious with these injuries in preperation of the patriot game

A high ankle sprain is a multiple week injury so no surprise about Santonio.

I'm hoping for a repeat of the Seahawks game. I ain't afraid of no Bungles........they had a good game and the and their fans are strutting around pretty c*o*c*k*y this week. And you know what happens when they get overconfident.......

We'll need everybody in tip top shape for the final stretch..........here we go,Steelers!

Yeah, these injuries were much easier to swollow while going up against the Dolphins. This game is just a tad bit different. Particulary with Polamalu being out.

You guys do realize our defense has pitched a shutout in both the games Troy has missed this year. He missed against the Seahags , 21-0 and last week against the phins 3-0. We have good depth. We are going to be OK.

There is some cause for concern.......as much as I despise the Bungles, Palmer and his 3 sidekick receivers are not to be taken lightly......

Too bad for them, neither is our defense.

My bigger concern would be on the O side with Holmes missing. If the field is as bad as it was Monday night, I don't think we will miss him as much.
