Steelers Aaron Smith likely out for Sunday's game

Tuesday, October 23, 2007
By Ed Bouchette, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

The Steelers likely will be without defensive end Aaron Smith when they play at Cincinnati Sunday.

Coach Mike Tomlin today listed Smith as "doubtful" with a sprained MCL in his left knee.

Tomlin also revealed that starting free safety Ryan Clark remained in Denver with an inflamed spleen he said was caused by a blood condition brought on by the high altitude and dehydration.

Other injury updates from the coach:

Linebacker Clint Kriewaldt (shoulder) has a good chance to play, tight end Jerame Tuman (back) will return and cornerback Bryant McFadden (ankle) has a chance to play after missing the past two games. Tomlin said wide receiver Hines Ward, who returned after missing two games with a sprained knee, had no setbacks.
More details in tomorrow's Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

It's a hot night. The mind races. You think about your knife; the only friend who hasn't betrayed you, the only friend who won't be dead by sun up. Sleep tight, mates, in your quilted Chambray nightshirts.

Smith's absence is definitely a negative for our defense.  I don't think I realized how much until Sun. night.

Yeah, especially against Cincinnati. Need Eason to step up big. Pressure on Palmer will be at a premium.

No doubt we'll miss Big Goofy Smith, but I almost shat myself when I thought it was Marvel Smith who might be out.  Then we'd be fucked.

Yeah except for that little thing we like to call catching the ball.
