Steelers star Troy Polamalu didn’t practice on Sunday. Oh, no … what happened now? Did he get hurt again? Is it something else?
Thankfully, head coach Mike Tomlin cleared up the mystery for us:

Oh, I see … he’s fine. Just old!
Apparently, the Steelers are taking a more cautious approach with the 11-year-vet. Polamalu has missed 22 games since 2009 and appeared in just seven in 2012. As a result, the Steelers are giving him plenty of time to rest and want to make sure the long-haired weapon is at full strength for the start of the season.
Makes sense. Meanwhile, check out this video of Mr. Polamalu preaching about the spirituality of shampooing.
