Steelers' Kriewaldt also done for season
By Scott Brown
TRIBUNE-REVIEW
Wednesday, January 2, 2008

In addition to Max Starks, inside linebacker and special teams captain Clint Kriewaldt is out for the rest of the season with a neck injury. Coach Mike Tomlin said Tuesday that the team will make a roster move to replace the ninth-year veteran. Return specialist Allen Rossum, meanwhile, is questionable for Saturday night's AFC wild-card game against the Jaguars because of a hamstring injury. If Rossum does not play, Tomlin said, running back Najeh Davenport and wide receiver Cedrick Wilson would most likely return kickoffs and punts, respectively. Willie Reid would also be a candidate to return kickoffs, assuming the shoulder sprain he is nursing doesn't keep him out of the game, and Santonio Holmes could return punts, Tomlin said.

? Ben Roethlisberger won't be limited in practice this week because of the sprained ankle he sustained in the Steelers' 41-24 win over the Rams on Dec. 20, Tomlin said. The Steelers didn't play Roethlisberger against the Ravens as a precaution.

"He's going to be fine," Tomlin said.

? Players that will be limited in practice or held out of it today include Reid, strong safety Troy Polamalu (knee), wide receiver Hines Ward (knee) and cornerbacks Deshea Townsend (foot) and Bryant McFadden (ankle). All are expected to play against the Jaguars.

wow, it will be a miracle if they pull this one off.

Tomlin was said to have worked them extra hard at TC. Maybe it's a little too much and next year he needs to find a better balance. We were one of the healthier teams early in the season and now we barely have a team left.

Wow there literally dropping like flies.
If im right Clint was on ST which we have no room for error, plus Starks, Parker, the 2 Smiths!
Rossum in my eyes being out would be a terrible blow. He has such a spark when he returns and we manage good field position with him around!

That's the price of having a rookie head coach.

Say what you want about Cowher, but he knew his football team. He knew when to use whip and when to back off.

But like they say about most rookies, once you reach the post season, you're not really a rookie anymore. The same thing goes for coaches. I'm hoping to see some signs that Tomlin has a better feel for his team against Jacksonville.

The rap on Cowher was that his teams often started slow and played well after mid- October, so it is a tradeoff.

Agreed Tomlin will learn from what did and did not work this year - although the camp may not have been as harsh as it was portrayed by some, Tomlin seemed to me to have little choice but to push in training camp to get across his message there was a new sheriff in town + shake up the lethargic 2006 mindset.

This is ending badly but if the Steelers somehow get to next weekend they certainly will have exceeded my expectaions at the start of training camp.

We were warned the soft early schdule might create a mirage this team was better than it actually was - that schedule and the collapse of the Bengals & Ravens masked problems that now are snowballing with the injuries.

I think that it helped mask the overall lack of talent as well.

Sorry, but I don't buy the "he worked them too hard in TC" reasoning. We've simply been snakebit by injuries at the worst time this season. These guys aren't pulling muscles and suffering other aches and pains associated to being physically overworked, they're winding up on the IR with season-ending injuries - I think that points more to bad luck than overdoing it on the conditioning. Stuff happens. I'm hoping they can get through it and at least pull this Saturday's game out. I'm not looking for anything past that.

i agree with fansince '76 i really doubt that TC made this guys get injured.. the only thing that TC does is make u work hard and maybe maybe if u don't take care of ur self on off days might make u a lil tired during the end, but injiry has nothing to do with it..
