Troy Polamalu back at practice, but not expected to play: Fantasy implications

Jason Bridge-US PRESSWIRE

Troy Polamalu practiced with the Steelers on Friday for the first time in seven weeks. He is not expected to play in Week 12, however. We break down the fantasy implications.

Troy Polamalu practiced with the Pittsburgh Steelers on Friday for the first time in seven weeks, according to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer. He is not expected to play Week 12 against the Cleveland Browns, however.

Polamalu was given the "doubtful" tag on Friday's injury report as he continues his recovery from a calf injury suffered early in the season. His status for Week 13 against the Baltimore Ravens is still uncertain.

Fantasy Impact: Polamalu has played in all of two games this season, racking up a whopping seven tackles. Chances are IDP owners abandoned him a long time ago, but if he is able to return next week he could help out a lot teams making their fantasy playoff runs. Polamalu is definitely worth targeting if he is available on waivers.
