Polamalu won’t need surgery on Achilles

PROCTER & GAMBLE POLAMALU

You didn’t need to be a medical expert to know Steelers safety Troy Polamalu was significantly bothered by an Achilles injury in the playoffs this season.

Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette has sources that confirmed what seemed obvious to the naked eye.  Polamalu was bothered and lacked burst because of the injury.  He seemed a step slow in the Super Bowl.

That’s the bad news.  The good news is that Polamalu won’t require surgery .   He is currently rehabbing the injury and receiving treatment in Los Angeles.

    Thank God for that. Just wish he could have been on top of his game in the playoffs/Super Bowl … sigh.

    Another photo in that weird outfit. The hair looks really dorky with a baseball uniform.

    You mean there’s some kind of outfit in which the hair doesn’t look dorky?

    Several comments were made about Polamalu being “invisible” in the playoffs…pretty much explains why.

    Troy is a remarkable player when healthy. Unfortunately for Steeler fans, recent history shows that he gets a significant injury every year.

    Great news!… This means he should be good for the 4 full games per season he usually plays! lol..
    He looked fat and slow in the SB. He should move back to Cali with his roomate Carson Palmer :>)

    Hey at least he’s wearing a jersey from a team in my state with a winning record last season.

    This is the first I’ve seen/heard of his photos. Is this an advertising campaign? If so, what company and why are the Twins involved

    @tuckercarlsonisthevoiceofreason …

    Have to say I think both he and Clay Matthews look much better with their locks pulled back. But at least it’s easier for Troy to do the flowing-hair Samoan warrior thing in Steelers black and gold than in a Twins uniform. And I’m still trying to figure out why he’s in a Twins uniform :)

    Maybe if he got a haircut he wouldn’t be injury prone. Good luck without surgery. I hope it heals properly.

    The Twins uniform must have something to do with Head & Shoulders because Joe Mauer is endorsing it too. Maybe Joe will be wearing a Steelers uniform. Actually, I’d like to see him in a Vikings uniform because he’d be the best QB we could get for this season.

    Sounds like Troy hired Roethlessberger’s PR guy

  15. dmobey says: Mar 11, 2011 8:25 PM

    You mean he wasn’t really that hurt when he used it as an excuse for his horrible SB play?

    Go figure.

    A Steeler who’s not honest.

  16. footballrulz says: Mar 12, 2011 11:42 AM

  17. Deb says: Mar 12, 2011 1:26 PM

    Hey, rulz!!! Hope all is going well with you … well, except for all this lockout stuff. Wish H&S would leave Troy in his Steelers uniform LOL

  18. footballrulz says: Mar 12, 2011 2:57 PM

    Same ol, same ol Deb. The grind never ends. This lockout sux. How are the Pack/Steelers gonna repeat if they can’t play?

  19. Deb says: Mar 12, 2011 3:08 PM

    Well, rulz, it’s okay if they repeat but next time it’s our turn to win ;)

  20. Deb says: Mar 12, 2011 3:09 PM
