Steelers to Wait Till Monday to Announce if Clark will Play

The talk this week about the Steelers has mostly centered around safety Ryan Clark, and if he should or should not play in Denver Monday night due to his condition.

As of now, the team will not announce whether they will allow him to play in the contest, and word is, they won’t make their decision till Monday. Clark nearly died following a game in Denver two years ago because of a rare blood disorder that is aggravated by playing in high altitude. While Steelers coach Mike Tomlin has not publicly said so, he is believed to have told Clark to sit out the game.

Clark had his spleen and gall bladder removed during separate operations and he lost 30 pounds after the October 21st, 2007, game in Denver, which ended his season. Many of Clark’s teammates told him he should skip the game.

Clark is not listed on the Steelers’ injury report because he is not hurt and he practiced all week.
