Pittsburgh Steelers FS Ryan Clark appears to be fine' despite suffering a concussion in Week 10. It is his second concussion in three weeks, and he'll need to pass post-concussion tests this week.
Huddle Up: Being that it's Clark's second concussion in 3 weeks, things aren't looking up for the Steelers' S this week. With fellow starting safety Troy Polamalu (calf) expected to miss another game, the Pittsburgh secondary figures to be shorthanded Sunday against the rival Ravens.

Pittsburgh Steelers FS Ryan Clark (head) left the Week 10 game against the Kansas City Chiefs due to an apparent head or neck injury. He hit his head awkwardly on the thigh of WR Dwayne Bowe while attempting to make a stop late in the fourth quarter.
Huddle Up: The Steelers' defense/special teams was a popular fantasy start this week facing the turnover-prone Chiefs, but Clark's injury puts both of Pittsburgh's starting safeties on the sideline for the time being with Troy Polamalu (calf) already out. As for the game, the Steelers registered one takeaway (Lawrence Timmons' OT interception) and two sacks in the 16-13 win. Monitor Clark's progress throughout the week.

Pittsburgh Steelers FS Ryan Clark won't play in Week 1 against the Denver Broncos due to his sickle cell trait. He did not play there in January during the team's Wild Card Game playoff loss. FS Ryan Mundy is expected to take Clark's place.
Huddle Up: In last year's playoff game the absence of the Steelers' regular safety played a role in Demaryius Thomas getting behind the Pittsburgh secondary for 204 yards on four catches. Peyton Manning may no longer have the deep ball in his arsenal, however, so Clark's absence may not be as much of a factor as last year.
