Steelers S Troy Polamalu aggravates calf injury
Pittsburgh Steelers safety Troy Polamalu left Sunday’s game
against the Philadelphia Eagles in the first quarter after
aggravating his strained right calf.
Polamalu limped off the field following a fumble by Philadelphia
quarterback Michael Vick. The team said Polamalu’s return was
questionable, but the 2010 NFL Defensive Player of the Year watched
the entire second quarter from a seat on the bench and did not
move. He was replaced by backup Ryan Mundy.
Polamalu missed each of Pittsburgh’s previous two games after
injuring the calf in a season-opening loss in Denver.
The Steelers also lost linebacker LaMarr Woodley with a strained
right hamstring. His return was questionable.
