Three ruled out for Sunday’s game

Posted by Teresa Varley on October 16, 2012 – 12:31 pm

The Steelers will be without safety Troy Polamalu (calf), tackle Marcus Gilbert (ankle) and linebacker Chris Carter (hamstring) this week when they take on the Cincinnati Bengals Sunday night at Paul Brown Stadium.

Gilbert left last Thursday’s game against the Tennessee Titans with an ankle injury, and after seeing a specialist in Charlotte, North Carolina on Monday it was determined he won’t have to have surgery.

“He has a tendon injury in his ankle,” said Coach Mike Tomlin. “It does not require surgery. He is week to week. He will be out this week. But it was a positive meeting in that the injury does not require surgery.”

Two other linebackers are also battling injuries, including Brandon Johnson (hamstring) and Stevenson Sylvester (right shoulder/AC sprain). Tomlin characterized both of them as questionable for Sunday. And they aren’t the only ones in that boat.

“We have some other guys that could be categorized as questionable as we sit here today,” said Tomlin. “In that group is Rashard Mendenhall with his Achilles situation, Maurkice Pouncey with his right knee and Isaac Redman with his right ankle. All of these guys we are going to deal with day to day and engage their availability on their participation in practice and workouts. We are optimistic, but at the same time we are going to take it day to day.

“We have some capable men if those guys can’t participate and we will expect those guys to uphold the standard which is the Pittsburgh Steelers.”

    The defense has lost 20 games due to blowing the lead, dating back to the end of Superbowl 43. Where I might add the defense lost the lead late and the Offense lead by Ben and Santonio bailed them out. That number would have even been higher if the offense didn’t in fact come back and salvage some wins. Re-tooling?? I think a complete restructuring is in order. Whether it means more players need to retire, be traded or waived so be it.
