Not just because we need him, but for him to be healthy again.
No doubt. I certainly meant that as well, but it didn't come out that way when I initially typed it out. Health and family above all else.
Clark just might be one of the most underrated guys on the team. His solid safety play allowed Troy to freelance and do his thing. Rarely OOP; rarely gets beat; solid tackler; and not afraid to earhole anybody coming over the middle.
As the season progressed last year, we saw how much damage an inexperienced safety (Smith v. Patriots) or a slow, average safety (Carter v. Jags - WC) can do to a decent secondary. Yeah, Polamalu was nicked for a lot of the season too, but I always felt that Clark was more of the secondary QB. When he went on the shelf, a lot of that unit's cohesion went with him.
Anyway, again, get better, man. For yourself; your family; the team; and the fans.
