Steelers Injury Report: Colon, Polamalu, Clark & Sanders All Dinged Up In Loss To Chargers

Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin met the media following the 34-24 loss Sunday at Heinz Field to the San Diego Chargers and during his press conference he gave a quick recap of the injuries suffered in the game.

Left guard Willie Colon (knee) reaggravated his left knee injury that he suffered several weeks ago and was unable to return to the game. Although Colon did dress for the last two games, he did not play and he admitted last week that the knee had to be drained a couple of times.

Safety Ryan Clark (hip) reaggravated his hip injury that he suffered in the win last week over the Baltimore Ravens, but was able to return. Wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders (shoulder) hurt the AC joint in his shoulder again and safety Troy Polamalu (Achilles) missed a little time in the game with an Achilles injury, but was able to return.

Nose tackle Casey Hampton (leg?) also missed some snaps on Sunday, but Tomlin did not include him in his injury recap.

The Steelers were also without the services of cornerback Ike Taylor (ankle), linebacker LaMarr Woodley (ankle), and tackle Mike Adams (ankle) on Sunday as all three players were ruled out on Friday and thus inactive.

I am, I'm me. 40 something, retired and a life long Steelers fan.

    They need to consider dumping Colon. If he isnt injured, hes a penalty machine.

    I think it’s time for Polamalu to retire. He’s missed most of the past two seasons with injuries and even when he’s playing, he’s a nonfactor. I also believe instead of drafting more WR we don’t need and then end up releasing, we should start going after OL & DL. This team, because of the ineptitude of the coaches and front office, now has more holes than a pound of Swiss.
