Polamalu won’t need surgery on Achilles

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.
