NFL Trade Rumors:
Ed Bouchette reports that Steelers WR Antonio Brown and S Troy Polamalu are expected to return to practice on Wednesday and both have a shot at playing against the Ravens this weekend.
Brown has missed a few weeks because of an ankle injury, so having him back in the lineup would certainly help their passing attack in the weeks to come. If Charlie Batch is under center against Baltimore, they still have a hard time moving the ball through the air, but Ben Roethlisberger at least has a shot of returning in time for this weekends game.
Polamalu has missed the majority of the season, but Ryan Clark has done a pretty decent job of manning the safety while he was out.
Bouchette adds that OLB LaMarr Woodley is considered doubtful for Week 13.

The Pittsburgh Steelers were back on the field Wednesday in preparation for their Sunday game in Baltimore against the Baltimore Ravens and the first injury report of the week is now out.
Practicing fully on Wednesday were wide receiver Antonio Brown (ankle) and safety Troy Polamalu (calf). For Polamalu it was the first full practice for him since injuring his calf in the Week 4...

By now, Im sure youve heard all the excuses by fans of the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Ben Roethlisberger was hurt.
Byron Leftwich was hurt.
Troy Polamolu was hurt.
Antonio Brown was hurt.
Mike Adams is a starting offensive tackle.
The Steelers typically play down to their competition.
Youre not going to win when your...
Troy Polamalu practiced on Thursday and looks like he should be ready to play on Sunday in Baltimore when the Steelers head into round 2 of this yearly rivalry.
Nobody will say that Will Allen should keep his starting job when Polamalu returns but nonetheless Allen has played very well since replacing Ryan Mundy this season. Hey may not have all the exotic moves that Troy has, but...
Could there be a Pennsylvania football curse?
The Pittsburgh Steelers could be on pace to sink as fast as the Philadelphia Eagles.
The two situations are comprised of very different circumstances yet their end result could be the same in that neither team will cash in their post-season expectations.

Let’s see, the Pittsburgh Steelers are without Ben Roethlisberger and Troy Polamalu. They showed some promise earlier this season with a four-game winning streak that got them to six wins. Then they lost two straight, including a defeat in Cleveland to a woeful Browns team. Now they’re 6-5 and losing their grip on a playoff berth.
Sounds an awful lot like 2009, doesn’t it?...
Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Mike Wallace caught only one pass last week against the Cleveland Browns on the final play of the game for 9 yards. He has just eight receptions for 49 yards in the last three games.
Coach Mike Tomlin has listed Wallace as a "co-starter" with Emmanuel Sanders and says "situations" will determine if Wallace gets the start this...
Right now it sounds like Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger won’t play this week against the Ravens. But according to Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun, Roethlisberger was limited in practice today along with wide receiver Jericho Cotchery.
Wide receiver Antonio Brown and safety Troy Polamlu full practiced.
Linebacker LaMarr Woodley didn’t practice.
Even with everything that went wrong in week 11 when the Ravens came into Heinz Field and took a close victory away with them, 13-10, the Steelers had a chance to win at the end. That was without guys like Ben Roethlisberger, Antonio Brown, Troy Polamalu, and others.
This coming Sunday when the two rivals face off in Baltimore, the Steelers should be, in theory at least, better prepared...
The number seven has much significance in the city of Pittsburgh. There are many connections, large and small, good and bad, obvious and not-so-obvious. Regardless of their nature, all these connections are pointed at the most important seven, Super Bowl Championship No. 7.
Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger wears number seven. The team misses him, as they are win less since his injury...
Wide receiver Plaxico Burress is active and will play for the Pittsburgh Steelers, who will not have Antonio Brown when they face the Browns.
Burress was re-signed earlier this week by the Steelers, who drafted him in 2000. Burress was needed because of injuries to Brown (ankle) and Jerricho Cotchery (ribs). Emmanuel Sanders will start for Brown, who was listed as questionable all...
A busy day for the Pittsburgh Steelers: Roethlisberger update, Wallace & Mendenhall on their demotions; Troy Polamalu back on the field.
1) The conventional wisdom for the Browns is that Phil Taylors return has made all the difference in the improved run defense. And theres no doubt that Taylor has helped since he returned from a torn pectoral muscle. The Browns gave up 63 and 49 yards rushing to Dallas and Pittsburgh. But sometimes impressions overcome facts. So lets check the facts, because its not Taylor who has...
While it remains unclear if Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback
Ben Roethlisberger (rib/shoulder) will be able to suit up this weekend against
the Baltimore Ravens, coach Mike Tomlin sounded positive regarding the chances
of wide receiver Antonio Brown (ankle) and safety Troy Polamalu (calf) playing
Sunday, reports Gregg Rosenthal of NFL.com.
Tomlin also sounded positive about...
Golden eggs aren't a myth. Just ask Jeff Dennis.
Dennis owns a jeweler in Alabama, and this year decided to drum up some promotion. If either side in the Iron Bowl was shut out, any customer who made a purchase at Jeff Dennis Jewelers' from Nov. 16-23 would have thier purchases refunded. No gimmicks, no gags, just cash.
As we now know, Auburn were dismantled by the Tide...
