All Systems Go for Polamalu

Steelers safety Troy Polamalu passed a concussion test Monday after colliding with Jacksonville running back Maurice Jones-Drew’s knees on Sunday.

He was taken out of the game in the fourth quarter with concussion like symptoms.

Polamalu is cleared to play in Sunday’s match against Arizona. Coach Mike Tomlin said “We anticipate him practicing tomorrow and moving on throughout the week like everyone else on our football team.”

More has been made of Polamalu’s sideline call to his wife to let her know he was okay than his concussion.

While Tomlin admit that call was a technical violations of the rules, he doesn’t expect Polamalu to be disciplined.  He said given the history Polamalu has with concussions it was important to assure his family he was OK.

It seems like Tomlin was treating his player as a human being not a piece of property which is contrary to many of the stories we hear.
