Default Steelers safety Polamalu unlikely to play against Ravens

http://www.pittsburghlive.com/x/pitt.../s_659153.html




Troy Polamalu, who has missed the last five games with a strained posterior collateral ligament (PCL) in his left knee, looks like a long shot at best to play Sunday against the visiting Ravens.

Polamalu recently had an MRI taken on the knee that he has injured twice this season and said the results were "encouraging." He didn't sound optimistic about returning to the field for the must-win game for the Steelers.

Polamalu is not practicing today and he said he doesn't anticipate practicing this week. When asked if he needs to practice on the knee before playing a game, the five-time Pro Bowler said, "I would think so."

Polamalu said last week that he hoped to return for the Steelers' regular-season finale on Jan. 3 in Miami.

He leads the Steelers with three interceptions despite playing in only five games.

I don't know why they didn't put Troy on IR to begin with.

Probably the same reason they didn't put Woodson on IR in the 95 season. They figured he could make it back at some point and be part of a SB run. Also, the injury was worse than they thought. I believe the week after the injury they said 2-4 weeks out...that was 6 games ago.

If we can beat the Ravens then I would say you will see him back in Miami. The only way he comes back is if we have a shot at the playoffs.

I wonder if Troy had stayed out longer initially instead of trying to come back quickly, if he would have been ready to play by now.

Hopefully he heals up. That's a guy you like to see play, no matter if he beats you or not.

I still don't know if Reed is playing Sunday or not.

Not good news. That's really all I can say.

We're saving him for the playoffs.

It's not like they got anyone better that he's keeping off the roster by holding that spot for him. If by some miracle the Steelers found themselves in the playoffs and you could put a reasonably healthy Troy on the field ... Well you can figure out the rest.
