    Troy will play against Jacksonville

    http://www.post-gazette.com/pg/06258/722041-66.stm

    Friday, September 15, 2006

    By Colin Dunlap, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette



    The way Steelers strong safety Troy Polamalu looks at it, these National Football League injury report thresholds are just an arbitrary barometer.

    Yesterday, Polamalu, who sustained a shoulder injury in the Steelers' 28-17 season opening victory against Miami last Thursday, was upgraded from questionable to probable. Don't look for Polamalu to miss Monday night's game at Jacksonville.

    He hammered the point home after practice yesterday, admitting that it would take a seismic happening to make this the first game he had miss in his three seasons in the NFL.

    "God forbid, if I were paralyzed, died or called to do something else," Polamalu said. "That would be the only way I'd miss this game. Everyone gets injured playing this game at one time or another. You just have to deal with it."

    Polamalu pointed to a three-play stretch in the second half against Miami as the point in which the injury occurred. On all three plays, he had rattling collisions with Miami players. After the game, coach Bill Cowher mistakenly said the injury occurred in the first half.

    "It happened near the end of the third quarter or the beginning of the fourth," Polamalu said yesterday.

    "It is a bone bruise, a shoulder contusion and something with my bursa sac."

    While Polamalu and tight end Jerame Tuman (hamstring) were elevated to probable, quarterback Ben Roethlisberger (appendectomy) is listed as questionable.

    Asked whether Roethlisberger's status could linger into a game-time decision, Cowher said, "It appears there is a good chance that could be the case."

    But if practice is an accurate gauge, Roethlisberger should be the starter against the Jaguars. Yesterday, just 11 days after his appendectomy, was the second consecutive day he practiced.

    This is great to hear, just more obstacle in the way for the Jags !

    I didn't think there was ever a doubt that Troy wasn't going to play! He's a warrior!!!

    Notice Cowhers' comments about Ben though possibly being a game time decision... I like it! Let the Jags guess and prepare for both QB's...

    I'm sure the Jags are preparing for Ben to play but any little bit of doubt to keep them thinking is always a good thing.

    I never knew he had been hurt until I read in the papers that he may not play.
