Default Timmons re-injures ankle in Steelers practice, Sweed hurt too

I told him not to push it......I told him.



Timmons re-injures ankle in Steelers practice, Sweed hurt too

Wednesday, September 16, 2009
By Ed Bouchette, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Linebacker Lawrence Timmons returned to practice today for the first time in more than three weeks, then eased off after his left ankle was injured again.

Wide receiver Limas Sweed also left practice with a mid-foot sprain. Their availability for Sunday's game is in question.
Timmons has a high left ankle sprain that was injured in the second preseason game Aug. 22 at Washington. He pulled on his uniform and pads today and joined his teammates for a regular practice, but "tweaked" the left ankle during the afternoon drill.

Sweed and Timmons were listed as having limited participation on the Steelers' official injury report.

Tyrone Carter, who will start for injured strong safety Troy Polamalu, was excused from yesterday's practice for personal reasons. He should rejoin the team Thursday and his status for Sunday's game is not affected.

Veterans Aaron Smith and Hines Ward were held out of practice as normal procedure on Wednesday.

As limited as we see Sweed I want him to be healthy and ready for Sunday, he is just too much of a threat for us if he can hang onto the ball, and wow im just gonna rule Timmons out now I mean it is a HIGH ANKLE SPRAIN.

Ok now that is out, I hope its not too bad and both guys comeback. I really like the improvement sweed has done. I think Sweed and wallace would of been our next two WR for years. Well atleast have the potential to be.

I hope TImmons doesn't turn into another Kendrell Bell.

High Ankle Sprains are a biznatch. He probably should have taken two weeks and done nothing until it healed. Fox covering him is fine with me. That boy is a beast, 10 tackles, yup, that will get it done for me for a back up linebacker. Looks like Foote was a little too quick on getting out of Pittsburgh. He could be playing right now.

Carter will miss an extra day. He flew to the Vatican to get the Pope's blessing to replace Troy. But the Pope needed an extra day to fly to Ireland to get Dan Rooney's blessing first.

Sweed can be replaced by McDonald.

I wish they would just table Timmons until he is 100% ready. This injury was the beginning of the end of Kendrell. Let's give him the chance to heal properly.

Works for me.

Classic!!!
I hope they remembered to bring back some holy water to dip Troy's knee in (Greek Orthodocs do holy water too, right?)

Dang it.

I agree.. Timmons NEEDS TO SIT DOWN until it is FULLY healed.



You just can't mess with those.
