Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin had his weekly spot on SiriusXM NFL Radio Tuesday following his weekly press conference and he was asked specifically about injured safety Troy Polamalu (calf), who will be out for a second straight game after re-injuring his calf against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Tomlin was asked by host Adam Schein how concerned he was about the health of Polamalu. “You know, I am concerned, but more than anything, as I sit here today, I’m more concerned about the guys that are playing,” said Tomlin. “We’ve deemed him out at this point for this week, so his status as I sit here is less of a concern – I’m more concerned about getting the guys that are going to replace him ready to play.”
This matches the Thursday report by Mike Prisuta of DVE Radio, who reported during the pre game broadcast that that he had heard that Polamalu could be out several more weeks.
Tomlin admitted that he is concerned about the calf injury, and the way that Polamalu hopped off of the field against the Eagles, it is easy to understand why he is. The Steelers safety has played in just two games so far this season and it sounds like he could indeed be sidelined several more weeks moving forward.
