Default Tomlin expects Polamalu at offseason workouts

Tomlin expects Polamalu at offseason workouts
http://blogs.nfl.com/2010/03/23/toml...ason-workouts/

Posted: March 23rd, 2010 | Steve Wyche | Tags: 2010 NFL Annual Meeting, Mike Tomlin, Pittsburgh Steelers, Troy Polamalu

ORLANDO, Fla. — Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said Tuesday that strong safety Troy Polamalu shouldn’t be hampered by the torn knee ligament that kept him out of 11 games last season and that he will participate in some of the team’s offseason workouts.

The absence of Polamalu, who didn’t have surgery to repair a torn posterior cruciate ligament, greatly affected Pittsburgh’s defense and clearly played a part in the unit not being as consistent in the secondary as it had been in the past.

“He’s feeling good,” Tomlin said of Polamalu at the NFL Annual Meeting. “For him, he usually works out in California in the offseason, but he’s generally around for all team-oriented things such as minicamps. He’ll make an appearance at his share of OTA days. In terms of his health, he’s progressing fine, and I don’t see any reason why he’d be prohibited in 2010 with what hampered him in 2009.”

Tomlin also said medical reports have indicated that Polamalu’s knee problem won’t be chronic.

“If another 300-pounder falls on it during a blocked field-goal situation, it could be a problem,” Tomlin quipped.

I hope he is there and the more I listen to the pros on Sirius Radio the more I think it means to each and every player to be there at as many as possible.. just as Payton Manning and his corp of WR's every offseason.

How's that a joke? Troy has his own way of preparing for the season, I remember watching a whole segment on it showcasing his 'unconventional' training methods. A lot of it was aquatic resistance training and such. He still attends most of the team-oriented activities.

I always thought him working out in California helped him more then when he worked out in Pittsburgh.

I'm going to have a heart attack every time someone touches him.

That was a freak accident that could happen to anyone. Hopefully not to Troy ( or anyone else on our team for that matter) again. We need him healthy all season.

That's exactly what it was, a freak accident.
This does not make him injury proned.
