The Steelers will likely be without safety Troy Polamalu this Thursday night against the Tennessee Titans, after he re-injured his right calf against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday.
“He will probably be deemed out this week because of the week itself being a quick turnaround and the nature of the injury,” said Coach Mike Tomlin. “We will evaluate him when get back from Tennessee. We don’t think he will participate.”
Linebacker LaMarr Woodley also could be out this week, but this is still a chance he could play after suffering a hamstring injury against the Eagles. With a short week Tomlin said he is “leaning more on him being out, as opposed to being in,” but wouldn’t rule it out.
“There is more optimism regarding where he is,” said Tomlin. “It’s just a mild hamstring injury if there is such a thing. It’s still a hamstring injury.
“We are at the early part of the season and we have to be smart in terms of how we deal with that. In a short week it minimizes his opportunity to play, but we will leave the door ajar for him.”
