Default Steelers get a clean bill of health - no injuries to report

Woo-hoo!

yes - that means Ben too...


Steelers Notebook: No caution planned for Big Ben
Wednesday, January 07, 2009
By Ed Bouchette, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

No concessions. That's the point coach Mike Tomlin drilled home tersely at his news conference yesterday when asked if he would be more cautious with quarterback Ben Roethlisberger Sunday.

In a word, "No," Tomlin answered.

Asked the same thing later in his conference, Tomlin added two more words to his answer: "No, I'm not."

Roethlisberger practiced for the first time Monday since he was carted off Heinz Field on a stretcher just before the half of the Steelers' 31-0 victory against Cleveland Dec. 28. He was diagnosed with a low-grade concussion and said he's fine.

Yesterday, Tomlin made it evident that the topic is now closed.

"Ben is going to be fine," he said.

So, too, are they all.

Tomlin listed no one as injured yesterday, saying "We've got a clean bill of health. It's the first time in a long time."

Safety Ryan Clark (dislocated shoulder) and linebacker James Harrison (hip pointer) were held out of the season finale, but practiced Monday, as did everyone else, including slightly injured fullback Cary Davis and linebacker James Farrior.

"Those are the guys that had circumstances that the off week, the bye, worked in our favor," Tomlin said.

So different than last year. It's hard to believe we're in one piece right now. (minus the IR guys)

That should play heavily into our favor if we progress through the playoffs.

Healthy and a point to prove that the last game was a fluke and it should have been a bigger blow out.

No excuses. Do it!

very rare to see any team going into the playoffs full strength.

granted, i dont think missing 2 of our starting linemen and d. sepulveda helps, but the steelers are very fortunate.
