Thursday's news and notes
Thursday's practice report is the same as Wednesday's for the Steelers.
Troy Polamalu, Will Allen, Arnaz Battle and Bryant McFadden all sat out again for the Steelers.
Aaron Smith was again limited.
The Steelers, however, expect to have everyone available with the exception of Allen and Smith.
© Jason Taylor was cleared to return to practice for the Jets after suffering a concussion last week.
But, the Jets continue to have a number of defensive backs who are limited, including Darrelle Revis.
© Polamalu, by the way, has always been very active visiting hospitals and talking with sick children there.
Apparently, he's developed a friendship with one young lady who has Ewing's Sarcoma, which forced her to have part of a lung and several ribs removed.
Here's a picture of Polamalu visiting the young lady at the hospital. Yes, they're playing Guitar Hero.
Polamalu and the young lady share texts, even in a big week like this one, and he brought her his game jersey from the win over Baltimore.
