If you held a straw poll of Pittsburgh Steelers’ MVP candidates through nine games this season, there’s a good chance you’d see votes for Ben Roethlisberger, Heath Miller and Ryan Clark. In the absence of Troy Polamalu, Clark has taken over as the leader of the secondary and has played with his usual reckless abandon in collecting tackle after tackle. While much of the focus is on the health of Roethlisberger this morning, Clark has apparently suffered a concussion from a hit on Chiefs’ receiver Dwayne Bowe late in the game last night in the Steelers’ 16-13 OT win.
