Contrary to the AP report that says Troy Polamalu may be done for the season, the strong safety will likely be back – sooner rather than later.
In fact, it's likely he will return when the Steelers play Dec. 20 against Green Bay.
Polamalu likes to play with the media, particularly large groups.
He will be examined by doctors following Thursday's game at Cleveland.
© Hines Ward did some light running Tuesday with trainers, but did not practice. He looks unlikely to play against the Browns.
© William Gay was back at practice Tuesday - funny how quickly guys heal when their jobs are on the line - but it's likely rookie Joe Burnett will start at cornerback opposite Ike Taylor against the Browns.
Keenan Lewis will also get some playing time.
