Steelers: No word on Clark's status

While safety Ryan Clark is not expected to play in Monday night's game in Denver, there will be no official confirmation from him or coach Mike Tomlin on his status before the game.

The Steelers will not release any kind of public statement on Clark's availability and will leave the question to be answered when they face the Broncos at 8:30 p.m. at Invesco Field. Clark, though, sounded like a player who wasn't going to play when he was asked about his status yesterday after practice.

"This is not about me," said Clark, whose rare sickle-cell trait can be complicated by high altitudes. "It's two good teams playing on Monday. Whether I play or not, the game is going to go on, and that's what I do know. They won't stop the game if I don't play.

"I just want to deal with it and get it over with. I can honestly say, I'll be happy Tuesday morning to get back to a regular life."

I'd like to see Clark sit this one out. The consequences are not worth it. It's a no brainer in my opinion. If we lose because Tyrone Cater gets torched, so be it.

I thought Tomlin made the decision for him (as per Thursday conversation)... He will not be playing...
