|Stud Steelers ready to go Week 2 |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(9/11/14) The Steelers will go into Week 2 with all of their stud offensive players.
A number of important players entered the week listed as probable on the injury report. Nearly all of them are active Week 2 against the Steelers. Le'Veon Bell, Antonio Brown, Heath Miller, Ben Roethlisberger, Cody Wallace and Markus Wheaton were all cleared to play. While they were all on the injury report, only Wallace was dealing with an injury. The rest missed practice for non-injury reasons.
On defense, the Steelers will have Brett Keisel, Steve McLendon, Troy Polamalu, Ike Taylor, Shamarko Thomas and Vince Williams. Wallace was dealing with an ankle issue, but the rest were listed for non-injury reasons.
|Troy Polamalu feeling good |
|by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com|
(8/17/14) Steelers safety Troy Polamalu, entering his 12th season, said he feels a little better physically than he did at this point last year, reports ESPN.com. Polamalu made five tackles in just over a quarter Saturday night against the Bills.
"It was nice to see some live action," he said. "I feel good."
Polamalu did not miss a snap last year. He will try to play all 16 games in consecutive seasons for the first time since 2004-05.
|Report guesses Troy Polamalu will retire after 2014 |
|by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(5/23/14) Troy Polamalu has been a staple in the Steelers secondary since being taken with a first-round pick in the 2003 draft. But reporter Ron Cook with the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette says his "best guess" is that this will be Polamalu's last season.
Cook brought up the issue when writing about safety Shamarko Thomas, one of many second-year players expected to contribute for the Steelers. Thomas figures to be the top backup safety in 2014.
Polamalu is under contract through the 2016 season.
|Troy Polamalu gets two-year extension |

(3/5/14) The Steelers gave safety Troy Polamalu a two-year contract extension, reports the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. Terms were not immediately available.
|Steelers considering redoing Troy Polamalu deal |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(1/16/14) The Steelers are seeking to reconstruct the contract of strong safety Troy Polamalu in an attempt to keep him with the team for the rest of his career, according to National Football Post. Polamalu is due $8.25 million in 2014, the final year of his current pact.
"How we structure or restructure (Polamalu's contract) is something we will look at in the next few months," said owner Art Rooney II. "There are a lot of pieces to the puzzle, but I certainly expect Troy will be one of the pieces to that puzzle. He's obviously been one of the great Steelers of all time."
Polamalu just concluded his 11th season with the team.
|It's been years since Troy Polamalu was a reliable Fantasy option. Despite playing 16 games last year, Polamalu validated that he was no longer a quality option after totaling 69 tackles, his lowest amount in a season he played 16 games in since his 2003 rookie year. For him to have value as a No. 3 Fantasy defensive back he'll have to accrue the same kind of outstanding numbers he had last year (five forced fumbles, two interceptions including a touchdown, 11 passes defensed and two sacks) while staying healthy for 16 games. Polamalu, who is 33, hasn't playing back-to-back 16-game seasons since 2004-05. He's not worth the risk of a draft pick.
