    Default Troy Polamalu not likely to play vs. Jets

    Steelers' Polamalu not likely to play vs. Jets

    Friday, December 17, 2010
    By Gerry Dulac, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette



    Peter Diana/Post-Gazette

    Steelers safety Troy Polamalu is dealing with a lower-leg injury.


    Troy Polamalu, who has made game-changing defensive plays in each of the past three games, is not expected to play Sunday against the New York Jets after aggravating his lower-leg injury on a 45-yard interception return for a touchdown against the Cincinnati Bengals.

    Polamalu has not practiced the past two days, which has been the routine for the five-time Pro Bowl safety since he was injured last month. But he has always practiced Friday and played Sunday -- until now.

    The Steelers do not have to list Polamalu's official injury status for the game until today after practice. He will be replaced in the starting lineup by Ryan Mundy or Will Allen.

    Despite aggravating his injury in the second quarter against the Bengals, Polamalu never missed a play and even had a second interception in the fourth quarter.

    His teammates have suggested that one of the reasons he lateraled the ball to cornerback Bryant McFadden on the second interception -- a move that upset coach Mike Tomlin and defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau -- was because Polamalu did not want to continue to run with his injury, especially because it could have been a lengthy return.

    Polamalu, who has four of his team-high six interceptions during the team's four-game winning streak, has been a defensive hero lately.

    His diving interception at the Steelers' 2 in the final three minutes in Buffalo prevented the Bills from tying the game or scoring the go-ahead touchdown in the Steelers' overtime victory. The following week, his strip sack on Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco led to the winning touchdown with 2:51 remaining in a 13-10 victory in Baltimore. And his interception return for touchdown against the Bengals tied the score and ignited the Steelers in a 23-7 victory.

    True and I hope so, but we sure turned some crappy QB's pretty good/great last season with Tyrone Carter (i know he's gone) in Troy's place.

    I just came from a Jets board where people are freaking out because Sanchez ISN'T out for the game.

    Carter made some plays here and there. I gotta tell you I am a little bit nervous about Mundy and Allen.

    Didn't we do that last year 5 times and lost?


    If we park him this week in all likely hood we will park him against the Panthers as well. Hopefully, by then we have wrapped up the 2nd seed by the time we face Cleveland and he doesn't need to play in that game either.

    If we can get Polamalu and Aaron back by the Jan 16th playoff game that would be a huge boost to the defense.

    I agree Beezy, short term, Carter was a very good backup player, he like many backups would get exposed when out there for long times.

    And I am very nervous with Mundy/Allen as well.

    And, God knows we'll need both of them to overcome Tomlin's incompetence.

    Yea... It would be nice to not have the last game matter, then the bye, to get some rest...

    Week 15 Playoff scenarios

    Pittsburgh clinches AFC North division:

    1) PIT win + BAL loss + PIT clinches strength of victory tiebreaker over BAL

    Pittsburgh clinches a first-round bye:

    1) PIT win + BAL loss + PIT clinches strength of victory tiebreaker over BAL and JAC

    2) PIT win + BAL loss + JAC loss or tie + PIT clinches strength of victory tiebreaker over BAL

    Pittsburgh clinches a playoff spot:

    1) PIT win or tie

    2) IND loss or tie + SD loss or tie

    3) IND loss or tie + KC loss

    There are other scenarios in which Pittsburgh may clinch a playoff spot if it clinches the strength of victory tiebreaker over certain teams this weekend.

    Buccoray and NKy: I agree. Beat up from the start of the season. Not much question of heart or desire to make it this season. Getting the bye week would be a colossal bonus.

    Dick Lebeau is doing that. Troy and Aaron just make DL's job a little easier.
