Vicks: Who Powered Through: Oakland Raiders - Pittsburgh Steeler Injury Update

I am liking this Vicks campaign because it is relevant to what we do, as writers, and what we, as fans want to know about.

With the "Who's starting at QB" question in the rear view mirror, the biggest thing on all of our minds is which injured players will be back this week?

Well, the good news is that Tom Cable was encouraged by Nnamdi Asomugha, John Henderson and Zach Miller in yesterday's practice. They were all limited, but, they were out there. I believe that they KNOW something special is going on this season and, especially, Nnamdi and Miller do not want to miss this game for the WORLD!!!

On another note, the mysterious 1-2 punch at wide receiver, Chaz Shilens and "Wayward"-Bey, did not participate.

As for the Steelers:

S Will Allen (concussion) is still on the sidelines and so are, DE Nick Eason (illness), DT Steve McLendon (illness), S Troy Polamalu (Achilles), DE Aaron Smith (triceps).

Those who were limited include: CB Crezdon Butler (quadriceps), DE Brett Keisel (hamstring), G Chris Kemoeatu (ankle), LB Lawrence Timmons (hip).

Hines Ward participated at full strength. I guess he has mysterious concussion healing powers!

The Steelers have some pretty serious setbacks on the defensive side of the ball. Although I fully expect, Troy Polamalu to be in there on Sunday, starting safety Will Allen is still out with a concussion.

There you have it. use this thread to update the news as it comes in and GO RAIDERS!!
