Default Polamalu, Ward look to suit up for finale

Strong safety Troy Polamalu and wide receiver Hines Ward are working toward playing Sunday against the Miami Dolphins. Whether either is healthy enough to play in the regular-season finale remains to be seen, though coach Mike Tomlin sounded more optimistic about Ward, who is nursing hamstring injuries in both legs.

Polamalu has missed six consecutive games with a strained posterior collateral ligament. He has done some straight-line running the past two days with an eye toward playing against the Dolphins.

"He's just progressing, trying to get ready, hopefully to play," Tomlin said of Polamalu at his weekly news conference. "The door's not closed on him participating."

Ward got treatment yesterday, and Tomlin checked on the 12-year veteran as he was icing both hamstrings.

"He's going to give us everything he has," Tomlin said.

Running back Willie Parker (shoulder) has been ruled out for the 1 p.m. game against the Dolphins. Tomlin said he is hopeful left guard Chris Kemoeatu (wrist) will be able to play. Kemoeatu, as well as defensive end Brett Keisel (neck) and linebacker Rocky Boiman (calf), will be limited this week in practice.

The Steelers placed rookie cornerback Keenan Lewis (back) on injured reserve and signed Trae Williams from the Seattle Seahawks' practice squad. A fifth-round draft pick by the Jaguars in 2008, Williams spent last season on the Eagles' practice squad. Lewis, a third-round draft pick last April, played in four games this season and was credited with one tackle on special teams.

I wouldn't even play Troy any more this season. I don't see the point. If this team could make a serious Super Bowl run, then I would consider it, but I don't see it this year.

I agree we can beat the dolphins with him and if we would make the playoffs thats when we would like to see him come back....other then playing in a meaningful playoff game i dont expect to see #43 until next season.

I would actually sit Hines Ward and Troy Polamalu against the Dolphins. Let's see what Tyler Grisham and Joey Galloway can offer this final weekend. Save Troy and Hines for the playoffs

Heh...Parker gets less than 5 touches and hurts his shoulder now....

I'm so glad we got Mendy so we can wave bye-bye to "Fast" Willie Parker.

I'm still wondering why Troy wasn't placed on IR after the last game he played. Really what gave them the impression he was going to come back any time before this last game and even then, what's the use. I have a feeling he'll suit up as a decoy then sit on the sideline the whole game.

According to the ESPN ticker last night on TV they mentioned that while Troy did practice on Wednesday he is not expected to play against the Dolphins.
