Sanders not fined, Woodley is

New England safety James Sanders was not fined for his helmet-to-helmet hit that knocked Hines Ward out of last Sunday's 39-26 loss to the Patriots.

Steelers' linebacker LaMarr Woodley did draw a $12,500 fine for a late hit on New England quarterback Tom Brady.

Go figure.

© The Steelers look pretty healthy going into Sunday's game against Oakland. Only Aaron Smith and Will Allen have been declared out.

Brett Keisel, who went through a full practice Friday, is questionable.

Troy Polamalu, Ward and Chris Kemoeatu are all probable. Polamalu returned to practice Friday after resting his sore Achilles' tendon Wednesday and Thursday.

Pathetic. However, I did read Green-Ellis was fined 5k for that chop block.

If he was, the league didn't release that info, which it has been doing.

It's quite certain the NFL doesn't like the way the Steelers play football. It rather have high scoring games led by pansy pretty boy quarterbacks...but it's all good because even if the Cowboys are "America's Team", the Steelers are God's team and will prevail in the end.
