Default Timmons Breaks Hand in Rams Game

The injuries continue to mount . . .

Steelers' linebacker Timmons broke hand in game
Friday, December 21, 2007

By Gerry Dulac, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Willie Parker's broken leg wasn't the only significant injury incurred by the Steelers in their 41-24 victory last night against the St. Louis Rams.

Rookie linebacker Lawrence Timmons, the team's No. 1 pick, fractured a hand playing on special teams. But, unlike Parker, Timmons is expected to play in the Dec. 30 game in Baltimore.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
More details in tomorrow's Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

Every team is banged up at this time of year, hopefully he can play and be effective for us on kick coverage.

to think we were one of the healthiest teams at the beggining of the season. even after Clark's injury we were pretty much healthy. now injuries are everywhere.

well.....as long as he's ok and will play then good.

I have a feeling this guy and Woodley will be used in some way by LeBeau in the playoffs. he hasn't exposed them too much, so maybe it's for no one to see what they can do. who know....it's just a feeling

i think it's wishful thinking that teams hold back somethiing for the playoffs; maybe a fake punt or one trick play. but why not show everythinig you have so teams have more looks than they can prepare for.

They may be used if only because the starting LBs other than Harrison are running on fumes

The best part IMO of the thursday game is that it gives us a lot of extra recovery time until the baltimore game

Dan, could you expand on this? Are you saying late season fatigue in general?
