Steelers release injury report for Week 6 at Cleveland


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/10/2014) The Steelers unveiled their injury report for Week 6 at Cleveland, and it's pretty cut and dry. Out of seven players listed on the report, four of them have been ruled probable for Sunday. The other three were ruled out for the game.

Safety Shamarko Thomas (hamstring), cornerback Ike Taylor (forearm) and linebacker Ryan Shazier (knee) were labeled out for Sunday.

Safeties Troy Polamalu and Mike Mitchell, tight end Heath Miller and Brett Keisel were all deemed probable despite receiving a rest day on Wednesday. Polamalu was the only player out of the group to miss back-to-back days of practice before returning for Friday's session.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

"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.

Steelers DST looks for redemption against Bengals


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/10/2013) The Steelers DST has scored double-digit Fantasy points in four of its last five games entering Week 15 vs. Cincinnati. The unit has scored a touchdown in two of its past three, including Troy Polamalu's 19-yard interception return vs. Miami.

Pittsburgh will be looking for redemption Sunday night. In a 20-10 loss Week 2, the Steelers DST got no sacks or turnovers and finished with four Fantasy points against the Bengals.

Cincy's Andy Dalton is coming off a near-flawless performance vs. Indy, when he threw for 275 yards and accounted for four touchdowns without a turnover. But he's the same quarterback who's committed 19 turnovers this year.

The Bengals rank in the middle of the pack against DSTs, giving up 9.2 points per game. Consider the Steelers DST a viable starting option.

Troy Polamalu hopes for bounce-back year


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/28/2013) Steelers safety Troy Polamalu is looking to get back on track after a bad season in 2012 due to injury, reports Joel Corry, a former sports agent who writes for CBSSports.com.

Polamalu's season was derailed by a lingering calf injury that limited him to seven games. The injury raised questions about whether age was catching up to him.

The 32-year-old has modified his offseason training regimen in an effort to put the injury questions behind him. Polamalu could be living on borrowed time because he has the second-highest safety salary-cap number for 2014 at $10,887,500.

The past offseason has not been kind to veteran safeties with extremely high cap numbers. Charles Woodson's and Michael Huff's cap numbers were $9,437,500 and $11,288,500, respectively, when they were released.


Polamalu fit at Steelers camp


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Polamalu told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review he's changed his offseason routine in an effort to stay healthy for the 2013 season. A troublesome calf injury has limited him over the last four years. Per the paper, Polamalu looks trim and fit. "I have done quite a bit of different things this offseason," Polamalu said. "There are a lot of different rehabs and training I am doing. I feel good, thank God."
