Default Timmons back at practice

NFL from the sidelines

After hobnobbing around the NFL in the press boxes and sidelines, sports reporter Dale Lolley will let you know the insider scoop.

Timmons back at practice

Linebacker Lawrence Timmons was back at practice Wednesday in a limited basis as he further tested his sore ankle, pushing forward toward playing Sunday in Chicago.

He did not, however, work in the team portion of the practice.

Getting Timmons back would be huge for the Steelers, who will be playing without strong safety Troy Polamalu.

© Limas Sweed was limited in practice Wednesday with a foot injury.

© Jeff Reed was named the AFC's special teams player of the week for his performance against Tennessee.

© Ben Roethlisberger was a little more open with the media on Wednesday than he usually is.

Roethlisberger usually talks in cliches and gives very short answers as he purposely tries to be bland.

Perhaps his most interesting comment came when asked about the 'Steelers' mentality.

"I think some of it comes from that being what the Steelers always did in the past. I always say you have to keep up with the times. Thatís kind of evolving into a passing offense - league wide. People talk about the Steelers and the run game because we want to be physical. When you want to be physical, people assume thatís the run game. But that can mean a lot of different things. I guess you can go all the way back to the Ď70s and we were a grind-it-out team. Weíre not that Ď70s team. Weíre our own identity and that includes a lot of no-huddle stuff. Itís been good."

I am a bit confused by this as well. I don't know when Dale Lolley wrote this for his blog. It may have been before the re-injury. I do know that this article was posted around 11:19 pm Eastern time. The Pittsburgh Tribune updates their site at midnight so perhaps we will know more then.

FAIL

There's enough real reporting going on -
if you're gonna slap crap articles up - at least read the damn thing first.

Delete this mess.

Not good news about Limas Sweed. Could mean McDonald gets to dress for Sunday's game.

*Twitter Alert!*

Timmons practiced and "made great strides," said LeBeau, who added that he's not 100 percent. Timmons agreed.

Well, I got a Steelertext message that Timmons practiced, but was limited. So it seems he did practice... I also remember that it said he just "tweaked" his ankle yesterday.

I would rather Timmons sit for at least another week. Fox did fine...

Again, I agree. Said it over and over the last week or two. I don't want him coming back until he is COMPLETELY ready to go.
