Some weeks ago, he was authorized to start back up lifting. It was just sometime last week where it was reported that Smith is doing EXCELLENT in his recovery and lifting and he is now starting to get back in football shape. If we beat Cleveland this week, he'll be back healthy, along with Troy. Atleast that's the plan NOW.

In MT's post game he made mention of a brace they fitted for him and as stated above it's said he's doing well.

It will be a BIG boost to the team to get both Polamalu and Aaron back-- not just from an X's and O's standpoint either. The band of brothers will be re-united.

Good thing, it's time to go on a playoff run soon. Time to take care of business.

If there is one thing Dick Lebeau probably wants to add to his legacy before he retires, it will be to put together the defensive scheme to solve Tom Brady. I figure he has been spending some extra time in the film room since that last meeting. If we get the #2 seed, it's looking like Superbowl via KC-->NE.

Maybe we are hoping to bamboozle them like we did to the Colts back in 2005. They got us 26-7 in the regular season matchup but we whipped on them in the playoffs.

Here's hopin.

AWESOME NEWS !!!!!!!!!! He should be ready to rock and roll.

But seriously folks, I hope he is back at close to full strength because it hasn't been quite the same without him. The only reason the team is number one against the run without him is that everyone is chucking the ball and not even trying to run. Not because Ziggy and Eason are so good. Thank God Keisel is back. He has been looking good. And that wild man look he has going must scare the daylights out of opposing running backs.

Just what have we missed about Smith ? He is 35 old and slow with no pass rush what so ever.

Collapsing of the pocket, hurrying the quarterback, offense's using an extra body to double him to open lanes for the backers, etc. Little things that go unnoticed that we miss. Our run defense is set up to be stout, but with Smith in there, we're unstoppable. We gave up some nice chunks against the Jets and Carolina had nice runs too so Aaron Smith will make his mark and it'll make us a better football team of unity with him as well. He's a leader and the other guys will step it up seeing him in there as well.

you are the only person I have ever seen who thought Smith is overrated. He has been regarded by fellow defenders as the best player on their D over the years, and is normally thought of as very underrated. I like our D much better with him and Troy back .

you're crazy bro, he's probably been the best 3-4 defensive end in the NFL and still might be. name even 2 other 3-4 DE's that are better than smith?
