NFL Playoff Picture: Can Troy Polamalu Get Healthy for the Playoffs?
NFL Playoff Picture looks slightly bleak for Pittsburgh Steelers star safety Troy Polamalu. He is still nursing an Achilles injury, and the Steelers have been "hush-hush" so far on his status.
However, it is not likely fans will see him on the field against the Carolina Panthers (2-12), because really, what's the point? They will most likely sit him out for Thursday's game so he will be ready for the playoffs.
ESPN echoes the idea: "Pittsburgh played without its star safety Sunday and suffered a 22-17 loss to the New York Jets. It was further proof the Steelers (10-4), who clinched a playoff berth despite the loss, won't go very far unless their do-it-all safety gets healthy. Polamalu is expected to rest his Achilles in the final two regular season games and return for the postseason. "
One thing is for sure: Polamalu is the deciding factor for Pittsburgh, and fans can bet they will see him come playoff time.
