Troy Polamalu said today that the calf injury that kept him out for seven games was to a different muscle than the injury that kept him out the first two.
Also, not that he lost it, but Polamalu seems to have a renewed appreciation for some things, including football, after missing nine games with injuries. He wrote a blog item about it below.
Thoughts on coming back from injury, life, and recent events…
After being out for so long, God has reminded me of why football is so important in my life. Time away has this effect on me anyway, but especially when coupled with the sudden and sad news in Kansas City. This game has aligned many things for me, and despite the recent challenges, tragedies, and growing concern for player health, it has enforced virtues, tempted passions, and it has helped reveal to me my own spiritual deficiencies.
I cant help but feel fortunate, and I am so thankful for the opportunity to play this game. I am a better man than I was, still learning and growing, yet far from good enough to be counted among the worthy. May God give us the strength to overcome the many adversities life brings. Thank you all for your sincerest kind words and prayers. I am eternally thankful for them. Pray not just for me, but for all of us who are in need. Many times the veil of money, a smile, even laughter conceals the inner turmoil one goes through.
