Steelers S Troy Polamalu on retirement: 'Time will tell'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/5/2015) Steelers safety Troy Polamalu acknowledged that his future with the team is in doubt, reports the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. The 12-year vet repeatedly said "Time will tell" when asked about the possibility he'd played his last game.

“Honestly, we just lost a game,” said Polamalu, who turns 34 in April and missed four of the final seven regular-season games with injuries. “I don't think I'm prepared to even think about that or talk about that at this time.”

Polamalu led Pittsburgh with eight tackles in the 30-17 playoff loss to the Ravens on Saturday night, but he did not deliver any game-changing plays. He has two years left on his contract.

While he admitted his future is up in the air, Polamalu sounded intrigued about returning in 2015 and playing with a team that got younger and better this year.

“There is a lot of young talent all over the field,” he said. "This team really grew throughout the season, not just in the secondary."


Steelers coach Mike Tomlin: Troy Polamalu will start wild-card game


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1/3/2015) Steelers safety Troy Polamalu will be in the starting lineup for Saturday night's AFC wild-card game against the Ravens, coach Mike Tomlin told the team's official website. Polamalu missed the previous two games and four of the last seven due to numerous injuries. He entered Saturday as probable despite dealing with a knee injury.

"I needed to see him prepare. Sometimes a guy is able to play at the 11th hour and they don’t get the in-helmet preparation over the course of the work week," Tomlin said. "When you get to January football and the stakes are high, detail is going to define you. Not only him but us, and you need that in-helmet preparation to do it. He was able to practice this week, and so that made the decision easier. Had he not been able to practice this week, that’s an element of the discussion that makes it more complex. That’s what I was referring to earlier in the week."


Troy Polamalu among notable Steelers probable for playoff game


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1/2/2015) The following players for the Steelers have been ruled as probable for Saturday's wild-card clash against Baltimore: Offensive tackle Mike Adams (illness), nose tackle Steve McLendon (shoulder), tight end Heath Miller (not injury related), tight end Michael Palmer (groin), quarterback Ben Roethlisberger (not injury related), cornerback Ike Davis and safety Troy Polamalu (knee). 

Polamalu has missed the previous two games and four of the last seven due to numerous injuries. His teammates scoffed at the idea that the Steelers are better off without the services of Polamalu, after he was a surprise inactive in Week 17. However, Will Allen could cut into Polamalu's playing time on Saturday, per the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.

Pittsburgh is a 3-point home favorite against Baltimore.
