Default Troy Returns Vs Detroit Lions....

Steelers targeting Week 5 return for Troy Polamalu

Sept., 26, 2009 - USA Today
The Steelers can see the finish line on their time without Pro Bowl safety Troy Polamalu.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports the Steelers envision Polamalu returning in Week 5. He's been out since suffered a sprained MCL in the opening night win against Tennessee.

The Steelers lost to Chicago last week in their first game without Polamalu. He'll miss Sunday's game at Cincinnati and likely the Week 4 test against San Diego. The Steelers play at Detroit on Oct. 11, when they're targeting his return.

The Post-Gazette reports that Polamalu has not elected to use hyperbaric chamber treatment that teammate Hines Ward used on a balky knee prior to last year's Super Bowl. Polamalu, the paper says, believes the side effect of the chamber can outweigh benefits to healing the knee.

This is great news. I thought Troy looked like a defensive player of the year against the titans. He will only have missed 3 games, if he plays the way he did in game 1, i can see the steelers losing maybe one more game after detroit the rest of the way.

I would almost rather have him sit that week out too...I'm sure his knee can use the extra time off.

the reality is that the knee will not heal completely until the offseason. hopefully he can play well the rest of the season at 75-90% and not reinjure it. knee and hamstring injuries tend to linger.

that said, GO TROY!!!

Yep.

Hope he is well enough to play and doesn't do more damage. You can bet that there will be a nice brace on that knee!!

You know,

JOHN KUHN could play with only one knee!!

Now that's thinking positively.........

I don't care if his preferred method of healing involves washing down his knee with virgin goat's blood every morning.
