Report: Polamalu Likely Out Until After Halloween
So you want some more bad news on the morning after the Pittsburgh Steelers 26-23 loss Thursday night to the Tennessee Titans?
I forgot to pass along the comments made by Mike Prisuta of DVE Radio during the pregame radio show last night in which he said that the word he is hearing is that safety Troy Polamalu is pregame radio show expected to miss four weeks of action after re-injuring his right calf last Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Although Prisuta did not elaborate on those comments, or cite his source, the time frame is certainly fathomable, especially when you remember back to how Polamalu had to hop on one leg from the far side of the field to the Steelers sideline after reinjuring the calf early in the game.
Polamalu missed two weeks of action following the season opener against the Denver Broncos, and in that game you weren't able to pick out the play that he hurt his calf.
Will Allen started at strong safety last night against the Titans over Ryan Mundy, and that likely will remain the depth chart when the Steelers take on the Cincinnati Bengals next Sunday night.
Water is wet and the Steelers need a healthy Polamalu in their secondary, but it sounds like it will be after Halloween until he is back.
Happy Friday everyone.
