As if things are not bad enough right now with the Steelers, word comes today that Troy Polamalu, a player this team really could use right now, isn’t sure if he’ll be back at all in the 2009 season. Polamalu is hopeful of playing again, but he said Tuesday there is no definitive date for his return.
Asked what it will take for him to play again this season, Polamalu said, “A whole lot of feeling. A whole lot of prayers. God willing, hopefully, I’ll be able to play. We’ll see what the doctor says.”
It was thought that the latest injury to Polamalu wouldn’t sideline him for that long, but as of now, he is for sure out for the Thursday game vs the Browns. After another letdown vs the Raiders, Polamalu says that even if he was playing, it wouldn’t have mattered.
“Honestly, I don’t think one person would make a difference in how this season has ended up for this team,” Polamalu said.
