Tuesday Tomlin
Mike Tomlin said today that Troy Polamalu played with a strained calf against the Chargers Sunday.

Tomlin said Polamalu suffered the injury in warm-ups and he wasn't sure Polamalu was going to play until he saw him run onto the field.

Polamalu will be limited in practice early in the week, but will play Sunday in the AFC Championship.

Center Justin Hartwig suffered a slight knee sprain in the first half Sunday, but was fitted with a brace and finished out the game. He'll be limited as well early in the week, but will play.

Word out of Baltimore is that linebacker/defensive end Terrell Suggs expects to play with his injured shoulder, but head coach John Harbaugh didn't sound as sure.

It will be interesting to see if Suggs does play, how long he's out there or if he's out there on every play.

The big injury for the Ravens, though, will be running back Le'Ron McClain. McClain sprained his ankle against the Titans and only carried the ball a couple of times after that. He wasn't effective after the injury.

If McClain is limited, so is the Ravens' offense.

Samari Rolle has a groin injury as well, which could definitely affect Baltimore's secondary. If Rolle can't play, Baltimore will be without both of its starting cornerbacks.

the ravens are pretty banged up...i don't think any of those injuries will matter, they're still going to play balls to wall against us

It'll be a bash-up. There will be more injuries before this game is over...

This is suit up and go in time for every team left.

Even if you leave the stadium at the end of playing to the final snap in a wheelchair, you were expected to nut up and play.

Right now, all the bull$hit injuries get to take a cortisone shot. If you can walk, you can play.

Therein lies the problem. We may win the battle but lose the war. We may have so many injuries coming out of the game that we won't be able to field a decent team for the Superbowl.

There is a week off before we would have to play in the superbowl, isn't there? That will help.

They are very banged up right now. That's the main thing we asked of the Titstains, and they delivered. I look for McClain to start strong and drop off, Suggs too. He falls on that shoulder a few times and he's gonna feel it. If he could have gone last week, he would have, but he sat out the remainder of the game. McClain came back in, but had no ability to cut, had lost a step and the power was gone as well. These are nagging injuries for them, but if we get up on them, look for them to drop like flies.

As far as our team, the only thing that bothers me is Troy's calf. He relies heavily on his speed to be in position. Last week he wasn't always there to make the play and the Charred Hairs ( :lol: ) reaped a 300 yrd. passing day.

Much of the Chargers passing came after the game was no longer in doubt. And Rivers is a good Quarterback, Flacco won't have that kind of day.

The Ravens are going to be ready to strap it up and play. Love him or hate him, Rex Ryan and Ray Lewis will have his mates on the defense ready to hit and it's going to be a throwdown.
