Pope with the Dolphins in Pittsburgh
“I didn’t feel well and thought I needed medical attention," Pope said in a statement released through the team. "Everything checked out and I feel better.
“I appreciate everyone’s concerns. I know our team physicians have been in touch with the hospital medical staff and are satisfied that everything is in order.”
While it is assumed Pope will play, his official status remains uncertain.
I'm sure whether he plays or not will make a big difference in the outcome of the game.
More important, perhaps, is the fact safety Troy Polamalu and receiver Santonio Holmes will not play for the Steelers.
