I.e: bell rung!
Coach Mike Tomlin described it as "concussion-like symptoms,'' and not a concussion.
Honestly, BRC, I take that with a grain of salt. Anytime they call it a concussion, it automatically trips a certain protocol with certain downtime, recovery, etc. Just because Tomlin didn't call it a concussion doesn't mean it's not one. We'll see how he responds later in the week. I'd say he's questionable (at best) right now for next week.
I hope Troy plays, I'm flying out to the Arizona game!
I think he just got his bell rung, didn't look like a concussion to me.
Bleeding Black and Gold since 86'
i think his own team mate wacked him in the head to hard for a good play... i cant remember who, but they did..

http://www.pittsburghlive.com/x/pitt...edium=referralStrong safety Troy Polamalu made one of the plays of the game Sunday for the Steelers, then left for good because of concussion-like symptoms.
Polamalu injured himself while taking out the legs of Jacksonville running back Maurice Jones-Drew on third-and-1 with 9 minutes, 36 seconds left in the game.
The injury is not believed to be serious, and coach Mike Tomlin said after the 17-13 win that the Steelers held out Polamalu because they "wanted to err on the side of caution."
Polamalu, who stopped Jones-Drew short of a first down, did not address the media after the game.
>> Ben Roethlisberger, who completed 12 of 23 passes for 200 yards, admittedly did not have his most accurate game. He said the swirling winds may have been an issue. "I have to make the necessary adjustments to purely focus on driving the ball and spinning it through the wind," he said. "When it is blowing, you have to put a lot of spin on the ball, and I wasn't doing that. It is something that I can easily change."
Good news. Hope he makes it Az. Thanks for posting.
