    Polamalu altering offseason routine in response to injuries

    http://espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/id/93...issues-history

    Troy Polamalu said he changed up his offseason rehab and training routine this year to try to ensure that his bothersome calf won't keep him off the field in 2013.

    The Pittsburgh Steelers' star safety missed missed more than half of last season with a calf injury. He said, for the first time in his career, he felt this injury was one that didn't have to happen.

    "There are times when people fall on my knee, and those type of freak accidents that can't be avoided. Last year was the first injury of my career that could've been avoided," he told reporters.

    The 2010 NFL Defensive Player of the Year declined to get into specifics on how he could have kept the calf healthy but says his offseason regimen continues to change as he matures.

    "Time is not stale," Polamalu, 32, said. "You have to continue to evolve as time evolves, your career evolves and your body evolves. I think when you become stale in that way, then it's just kind of a redundant thing."

    Polamalu's calf has bothered him since 2009 but last season was the first time it kept him off the field for a significant amount of time. He said his goal this offseason was to break up the scar tissue that has built up in his calf over the years. He said he "found a great physical therapist" to assist him in that area.

    "If you don't attack the problem of scar tissue, then you're just going to continue to have problems," he told reporters, adding that he hopes to "make these problems obsolete."

    And yet Troy, Ike AND Clark, were all no shows for OTA's yesterday.

    Can't imagine what would be said if that were their HOF QB.

    You're an idiot. As Mark Kobaly said, the only things that can happen to long time vets like them in May are negative. Who gives a ****? I love Ben as much as anyone but you constantly act like he's viewed around here as a piece of **** rapist who we can't wait to get rid of. Not to mention Ben's situation and the situation of Clark, Ike and Polamalu are astronomically different. They've been in the same system for YEARS. They don't need OTAs. Especially with them already in great shape. Why would Troy risk getting injured in OTAs when he's had so many issues recently. They'll be there for training camp when it matters. Ben on the other hand is still learning a new system, with his O line learning a new blocking scheme, and he has new guys he has to build chemistry with. Their situations aren't comparable. Oh and Clark returned today.

    So, I reiterate... You're an idiot. The only reason you aren't blocked is because of how entertaining your stupidity is. You make it too easy.

    In PITTSBURGH? That statement above is more accurate that you think it is.

    What's hilarious though are many of the same local idiots who bash Ben treat Charlie Batch like he's a hero.

    Actually you are totally wrong. I never root for the Steelers to lose.

    Unlike other "fans" in that city who went on the record and admit they don't root for them anymore until Ben is done there.
