Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette is reporting that Steelers safety Troy Polamalu will not play this Sunday against the New York Jets.
Polamalu has not practiced on Wednesday’s and Thursdays for the past several weeks, but has always practiced Friday. Dulac reports that he is unlikely to practice Friday, which puts his status for Sunday in doubt.
There is no sugar coating this one folks.
Troy Polamalu is a play maker and a game changer for the Steelers. With Troy Polamalu in the line up the Steelers defense is dynamic and dangerous. Without him last year, the defense was much more pedestrian, unable to make big plays and just as likley to give them up.
