Good news about Troy

I'll be interested to see how they split the carries between Parker and Moore.

Great to see Troy is fine and he will recover for this week, and I still want Parker over Moore and hoping to see him back in action.

Polamalu likely to play Sunday
Tuesday, October 21, 2008

By Ed Bouchette, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Coach Mike Tomlin said today he expects safety Troy Polamalu to play against the New York Giants, even though the coach confirmed he sustained a concussion in the fourth quarter against Cincinnati.

"As of right now, we anticipate him playing," Tomlin said.

More good news for the Steelers: Nose tackle Casey Hampton and fullback Carey Davis also are expected to play Sunday against the Super Bowl champions, Tomlin said, and halfback Willie Parker will practice Wednesday and has improved since he reinjured his sprained left knee last Monday.

I hope letting Troy play despite getting his bell rung won't come back to haunt us. I'd feel better if he sat this week, but then I'm not Tomlin or the team doctor.

Getting hampton back for this week is crucial. They have the best run-blocking line in football, and Jacobs can be an absolute beast when he gets a head of steam.

I'm really really anxious to see how our run defense, which hasn't really been challenged this year, holds up against the best the league has to offer.

It'll be interesting to see how our defense stacks up against a run heavy offense like the giants.
