    Default Troy....maybe??????? Injury report

    Steelers Place Sweed On Injured Reserve

    Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin held his weekly press conference Tuesday afternoon and confirmed that two roster moves have been made.

    First, wide receiver Limas Sweed has been placed on the non-football illness injured reserve list, which ends his season.

    Tomlin would not elaborate on the nature of Sweed's condition out of respect for his privacy. Uncontrollable cramps???? athletic trainers ran out of Midol

    To replace Sweed, the Steelers signed veteran Joey Galloway, who started this season with the New England Patriots.

    Galloway, 38, played two games for the Patriots before being released and was also brought into Pittsburgh during the summer.

    In addition, the Steelers signed long-snapper Jared Retkofsky.

    That signing comes after Greg Warren injured the ACL in his right knee on the final play of the Steelers 37-36 win over the Packers on Sunday.

    Warren has been placed on injured reserve as well and his season is over.

    Tomlin also updated the status of several other Steelers who are battling injury problems.

    Most notably, Hines Ward suffered a setback with his hamstring injury and will be limited in practice early in the week. He will be evaluated on a day-to-day basis.

    Mike Wallace has a knee contusion and will be limited in practice early in the week.

    Rashard Mendenhall has a hip contusion and will be limited in practice early in the week.

    Brett Keisel has a stinger and will also be limited early in the week.

    [HIGH-LIGHT]Tomlin did not have an update on the status of Troy Polamalu, however one should be available shortly.

    Polamalu is expected to undergo an MRI Tuesday. Tomlin hoped to have the information available for the press conference, but the scheduling of the MRI prevented that.[/HIGH-LIGHT]
    The Steelers take on the Baltimore Ravens in a must-win game on Sunday at 1 p.m. at Heinz Field.

    Not an injury you want to play around with, if he can't go...oh well...he hasn't for over half the season. If they risk it with him not being ready....he may not be able to play next year....or ever again.

    My feeling is Troy would probably want to risk it if he felt he could go cause he is a player, a gamer, but the team isn't going to risk such an investment, and nor should they.
