Default Thursday's news and note

NFL from the sidelines

After hobnobbing around the NFL in the press boxes and sidelines, sports reporter Dale Lolley will let you know the insider scoop. Dale can also be heard on Tuesday nights throughout the season from 7 to 9 p.m. on WBGG 970-AM.

Thursday's news and notes


Thursday's practice report is the same as Wednesday's for the Steelers.

Troy Polamalu, Will Allen, Arnaz Battle and Bryant McFadden all sat out again for the Steelers.

Aaron Smith was again limited.

The Steelers, however, expect to have everyone available with the exception of Allen and Smith.

Jason Taylor was cleared to return to practice for the Jets after suffering a concussion last week.

But, the Jets continue to have a number of defensive backs who are limited, including Darrelle Revis.

Polamalu, by the way, has always been very active visiting hospitals and talking with sick children there.

Apparently, he's developed a friendship with one young lady who has Ewing's Sarcoma, which forced her to have part of a lung and several ribs removed.

Here's a picture of Polamalu visiting the young lady at the hospital. Yes, they're playing Guitar Hero.



Polamalu and the young lady share texts, even in a big week like this one, and he brought her his game jersey from the win over Baltimore.

Troy Polamalu is awesome. The most humble and hardworking person I've ever seen. No wonder he is the face of Pittsburgh!

I'm pretty sure the little girl is Heather Miller. Big Snack was another player that spent time with her.

The writer above makes it sound like Troy was just visiting her this week. Unfortunately Heather passed away almost a year ago:
