Default Tomlin Confirms Ryan Clark Will Not Play Sunday

Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin on Tuesday said he will not allow safety Ryan Clark to play in Sunday's AFC wild-card game in Denver against the Broncos out of fears for Clark's health.

Tomlin said he has informed Clark that he won't play and said it was an "easy decision" to make.

Definitely the right decision

Too bad Tomlin is not as conservative with regard to exposing his QB to injury

and he shouldn't. if playing is a risk to losing his life then he definitely should NOT play.

And fortunately Tomlin did not allow Ryan Clark to have a say - pro athletes almost always will take the risk of being hurt to step up for their team

Good move. Ryan got really sick last time he played in Denver.

Good choice. We need him more in Baltimore or New England anyway.

It damn near killed him.

A game is not worth risking your life over period.

smart move....but still sucks considering he's our best tackler on the team and can also really lay a stiff hit on someone.

Mundy has been playing pretty well. I don't think our DBs will have much of an issue against the Broncos anyway.

Mundy will step up and do the job, but something I didn't think of when I made my first comment about it: now we won't get to see Clark blow up Tebow on one of those "sneak out of the pocket" runs.
