Best Case Scenario for Troy
According to the Post Gazette, Troy Polamalu's knee injury will not require surgery and he is expected to return within 3-6 weeks. Lets hope it is closer to 3 than 6. The D still looked solid against the Titans after Troy left, holding the Titans to 3 points in the second half. The Steelers catch a break the next two weeks playing Chicago and Cincinnati, two teams that do not have very prolific offenses. Chicago looked terrible last night with Cutler throwing four picks and Cincinnati could only muster 7 points against Denver. If Troy could make it back the next week vs. San Diego, it would be a major bonus. However, I also don't want to rush him back. We will need him much more later in the season and the playoffs and I believe the D will be fine without him just not the best version of itself.
