Polamalu out, Woodley doubtful for Steelers

Updated:

PITTSBURGH (AP) - Pittsburgh Steelers safety Troy Polamalu will miss Thursday's game against Tennessee after aggravating his strained right calf and linebacker LaMarr Woodley is doubtful with a mild right hamstring injury.

Polamalu lasted just a quarter during Sunday's 16-14 win over Philadelphia. He was in coverage during a pass play then pulled up shortly after the whistle. He limped to the sideline and spent the rest of the game on the bench. Polamalu has already missed two games this season with the same injury.

Coach Mike Tomlin is a little more optimistic about Woodley but said the short week means the linebacker will likely sit out.

The Steelers (2-2) avoided their first 1-3 start under Tomlin thanks to Shaun Suisham's last-second field goal, but Pittsburgh has struggled on the road this season, losing to Denver and Oakland.
