49ers Vs. Steelers: Sleeping With The Enemy

New, comments

Normally I would just post a FanShot to remind folks to check out the Ask Niners Nation FanPost I set up at the opposing team's site. However, I also wanted to point out a pretty solid FanPost written by a Steelers fan who lives in San Francisco. I disagree with his comments about Smith's running ability, his classification of Ahmad Brooks, and some of his comments about the wide receivers, but otherwise I think he nailed a lot of points about the 49ers.

There is plenty to discuss heading into this game, particularly with the Steelers dealing with the James Harrison suspension and injuries to QB Ben Roethlisberger and C Maurkice Pouncey. The Steelers have listed those two, as well as safety Troy Polamalu as questionable for Monday's game.

Roethlisberger and Pouncey are both dealing with grade one high ankle sprains. Polamalu was a bit of a surprise addition as he deals with a hamstring issue. He was probable with a knee injury last week, so this is something new. We'll see how it shows up on the injury report later this week.

The other significant injury is a hamstring injury that has cost OLB LaMarr Woodley some time. It sounds like he is likely a go this Monday.
