Default Browns can expect to see Steelers' Polamalu

Browns can expect to see Steelers' Polamalu
By Mark Kaboly
Daily News Sports Editor
Thursday, October 15, 2009

Steelers safety Troy Polamalu participated in a full practice for the first time since injuring his knee during the first half of the first week of the season and is expected to play Sunday against Cleveland.

"We are excited to have him back," safety Ryan Clark said. "Me and TP will be back there this week, so hopefully you will leave us alone about it the rest of the year."

Polamalu said he had an earlier date circled for when he expected to return.

"I was hoping to return a couple of weeks earlier," Polamalu said. "I guess I was overly optimistic."

Polamalu just began to practice last week on a limited basis.

"With time, I was able to heal a little bit more," Polamalu said. "It will be exciting this week to pick it up a notch."

Cleveland quarterback Derek Anderson completed only 2 of 17 passes last week against Buffalo, and Clark knows that won't happen this week because the Browns' coaching staff won't allow it.

"Coaches won't let a player sink like that again," Clark said.

Clark is expecting plenty of screens and short passes early in the game to get Anderson into the flow.

"(Once he gets) warmed up and they get him into the flow of the game, then they will try to do some other things," Clark said. "I don't think you can pass judgment on Derek Anderson from the Buffalo game."

A scoring change from last week's game in Detroit that originally gave LaMarr Woodley and William Gay a half sack each has been amended to credit Woodley with a full sack. Woodley now has two sacks on the season and Gay has one.

Sitting out practice for the Steelers were WR Hines Ward, OL Trai Essex, LB Andre Frazier and DL Travis Kirschke.


"I'm not going put a big 'S' on my chest and be a Superman. When you do that, you play out of the framework of the defense and when you do that, that breaks down the defense." Nick Eason, one of three players who will fill in at defensive end for the injured Aaron Smith.
