Dick LeBeau Expects Troy Polamalu To Play In A Limited Capacity Against Baltimore

By Kipper @pghsportsforum
Troy Polamalu has practiced the past 2 days and is likely to see playing time Sunday against Baltimore but it would be limited playing time. Dick LeBeau had the following to say :
"Well, I think it means a lot," said LeBeau, when asked what it means to him to get Polamalu back this week. "You know, his leadership and stability out there. And our guys have done a good job without him and he won't be able to be out there, I don't think, for every snap, but he's going to be able to take a significant role, and lets face it, when you can have #43 on the field, its a plus for the Steelers. So were looking forward to his return."
LeBeau was asked why they would need to be cautious with Troy in his first game back.
"Well, you know he's been idle for a good while and I think you just want him to build back into complete game condoning," said LeBeau. He's in good shape. He's been able to run and I think that's how they were able to judge that he was ready to come back or not. The after effects of hard workouts. So his aerobic conditioning is good, but his football conditioning is going to keep in development. And we'll try to help him with that, but it will be good to have him back."
Asked about the impact Troy Polamalu could make against the Ravens, Dick LeBeau answered,
"Well, he can make plays that only Troy can make and that's no knock on anybody else, but he's a rare player and he's always good to have in the game."
