Default Polamalu says he's ready, Tomlin may not agree

Polamalu says he's ready, Tomlin may not agree
Buzz up!

John Harris is a sports columnist for the Tribune-Review. He can be reached via e-mail

What safety Troy Polamalu wants and what coach Mike Tomlin decides regarding Polamalu's playing status are probably two different things. After practicing for the third consecutive day, Polamalu declared himself ready for Sunday's 1 p.m. game against the Detroit Lions. However, Polamalu, who has been out since he sprained his knee against Tennessee on Sept. 10, is listed as doubtful on the injury report. "It was really good to be out there practicing. I feel pretty good,'' Polamalu said Friday. If it were up to him, Polamalu said he would play Sunday. "Yes. No question," he said. Polamalu also understands that it's a long season, and Tomlin has the final say. "I don't know if coach Tomlin's made a decision or not. All I can do is prepare myself like I'm playing. Coach Tomlin cares about his players. I don't think he would throw me out there if he thought I'm not prepared or I'm not ready."

There are no questions about running back Willie Parker's status. Parker (turf toe) will miss his second consecutive game. Left guard Chris Kemoeatu, who was limited in Thursday's practice, was a full participant yesterday.

A host of Detroit players are listed as questionable on the injury report, led by rookie quarterback Matthew Stafford. Coach Jim Schwartz was evasive about Stafford's status. Stafford, who suffered a knee injury in the Chicago game, missed the first two days of practice and was limited in individual drills yesterday. Veteran Daunte Culpepper will start if Stafford doesn't play. Other Lions who are questionable include tackle Gosder Cherilus (shoulder), defensive end Cliff Avril (hamstring) and safeties Kalvin Pearson (quadriceps) and Ko Simpson (hamstring). Defensive tackle Sammie Hill (ankle) is doubtful.

Digits

10 -- Steelers' wins in the past 12 games against Detroit.

It would be nice to know we would have him if we needed him. As you stated hopefully that won't happen.
