    Clark will be a no go for Sunday night vs Denver

    Steelers' Clark won't play in Denver
    Monday, August 23, 2010
    By Ed Bouchette, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
    Steelers safety Ryan Clark will not play in Sunday night's game in Denver for preventative health reasons, he confirmed to the Post-Gazette today.
    Clark, who lost his spleen and gallbladder after playing in the high altitude in Denver in 2007, was held out of the Steelers game there last season, a Monday night game on Nov. 9. As he did last season, Clark will make the trip to Denver and be with his teammates on the sideline.
    "I still want to play but I understand if I'm not going to play a Monday night game, I'm definitely not worried about this one," Clark said. "We'll still go through the same process. I'm glad it's not as big an ordeal as it was last year."
    Clark, who has sickle cell trait, wanted to play last year after doctors told him he was not likely to experience the same blood reaction that caused him to lose his spleen and gallbladder. However, coach Mike Tomlin took that decision out of his player's hands and said he would not dress him for the game.

    There's no game worth him potentially dying over so yeah, if he never steps foot in Denver again it'll be too soon.

    Good decision on Tomlins part to hold Clark out if this game for obvious health reasons.
