Well, that sucks a nice big fat one. That's possibly the one guy other than Ben or Troy that we can't afford to lose.

Let's hope our #1 draft pick is ready to do something.

Tomlin scared me this time. It sounds like more tests will determine how long he's out.

Keep your fingers crossed.

We saw what happened to our run D the last time he went down.

Aaron Smith out with shoulder injury

Tuesday, October 13, 2009
By Ed Bouchette, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Just as the Steelers welcome the possible return of safety Troy Polamalu this week, it appears they have lost the services of defensive end Aaron Smith.

Smith's right shoulder was injured in Detroit Sunday and coach Mike Tomlin said today it "potentially could be significant."

Tomlin said the injury potentially could keep Smith out for awhile, pending the result of tests today.

The Steelers regard Smith as the best 3-4 end in football.

Tomlin said Ziggy Hood, their first-round draft choice, is not yet ready to replace Smith as the starter and they would do so "by committee."

Not good. Looks like Nick Eason will be active soon.

All the injury news from the presser:


Steelers' Polamalu, Parker back, but Smith likely out against Browns

Strong safety Troy Polamalu and running back Willie Parker could return to action Sunday but the Steelers are expected to be without defensive end Aaron Smith when they host the Browns.

And Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said Smith may be out for an extended period of time because of a shoulder injury he sustained in last Sunday's 28-20 win over the Lions.

"Potentially could be significant," Tomlin said of Smith's injury.

If Smith is unable to play Sunday the Steelers will use a rotation of Travis Kirschke, Ziggy Hood and Nick Eason, Tomlin said.

Polamalu and Parker are slated to practice tomorrow and Tomlin sounded optimistic that the Steelers will have both players for the game against the Browns.

"It will be really interesting to see how they respond Thursday," Tomlin said of Polamalu and Parker.

against Lewis and the Browns offense...I think we should be able to manage without Smith for one game. And in fact, as long as he makes it back in time for the playoffs, I'm not going to panic. I'd like to see our entire defense healthy and geared up for the game in 2 weeks against the Vikings, but if he needs to sit longer, than so be it.
