Mike Tomlin Says Troy Polamalu Has A Contusion To The Birth Certificate
The Pittsburgh Steelers have wrapped up day ten of training camp and head coach Mike Tomlin met the media on the field at the end of the Sunday practice and here is what he had to say.
“Really a kind of an uneventful day, good work, as has been the last several days. Introduced some other components of situational football. Worked backed up, continuing to develop red zone package offensively and defensively and worked kickoff and kickoff return and special teams. Really kind of more of the same. I like the energy and enthusiasm. Guys really getting in the rhythm of this thing and we\’re seeing the results of it. They\’re developing a skill that\’s going to be required of us being good and just generally from an effort standpoint, they\’re doing a nice job of fighting through. Obviously, we\’ve got a number of bumps and bruises that are associated with this time of year. We\’ll do the best we can to treat those guys to get those guys out there as quickly as we can.”
At the end of the Q & A session, Tomlin was asked about Troy Polamalu being sidelined on Sunday.
“He\’s got a contusion to the birth certificate,” said Tomlin. “It\’s from the 70\’s. He\’ll be ok.”
In addition to Polamalu not working, Lawrence Timmons (personal), Nick Williams (knee), Terry Hawthorne (knee), Curtis Brown (unknown), Cortez Allen (knee), DeMarcus Van Dyke (hamstring), Matt Spaeth (knee), Ross Ventrone (unknown), Adrian Robinson (unknown), Brian Rolle (unknown) and Curtis McNeal (unknown) were also sidelined.
While Le\’Veon Bell, Jarvis Jones, Steve McLendon and Jason Worilds did dress on Sunday, Bob Labriola reported that they only did individual drills.
