Default Polamalu to practice Friday

Steelers' Polamalu to practice Friday
By Kevin Gorman
TRIBUNE-REVIEW
Thursday, January 3, 2008

Troy Polamalu did not practice this afternoon, but Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said the Pro Bowl strong safety will practice tomorrow in preparation for Saturday?s AFC Wild Card game against Jacksonville at Heinz Field.

Polamalu missed the season finale at Baltimore with a knee injury, the fifth game he has missed this season. Tyrone Carter started in his place last week.

?Tomorrow is going to be a big day for him,? Tomlin said of Polamalu. ?Today was a big day for him. It didn?t necessarily show itself on the practice field, but a big rehab day. He took some steps. Tomorrow, he?ll be ready to give it a shot and we?ll see where he is.?

Tomlin said it was a ?collective? decision, and discounted any possibility that Polamalu will not practice.

?He will not try ? he will do tomorrow in practice,? Tomlin said. ?I?ll watch him closely tomorrow.?

Fingers crossed that Troy will be able to practice tomorrow without pain and be able to play Saturday night.

Troy - we need ya!

I bet he would sit if this was a regular season game - I guess they drain/shoot up his knee and hope it holds together.

Just another bad sign in a month of bad news

totally agree. tomlin seems to take absolutely no chances. frankly im not sure if the playoff/ vs regular season game will influence tomlin either way, when he goes by what he sees tomorrow.

i wouldnt be shocked if we hear troy will sit. i agree that troy should play though. thsi is the playoffs and i hope tomlin treats it as potentially the last game of the season.

all hands on deck.

All hands on deck as long as it doesn't effect the long term career of the player. I have a feeling Troy will play. Even if he isn't 100% healthy, I don't see him missing a home playoff game.

But the question is at what point is an injured Troy less effective than Anthony Smith, who at least so far has only appeared to be impaired mentally rather than physically.

For those who recall Troy's play in the Ravens massacre at Heinz last Christmas Eve, Troy can hurt the team as well as himself if his knee is hurting but he still goes out there.

Troy is the key to success on the defense and our x-factor and if he does not play we might as well pack up and leave early!

We can all breathe a sigh of relief. Troy will be a big impact in the game on Saturday.
