Steelers hope to have Polamalu back for Ravens

Updated:

PITTSBURGH (AP) - The reeling Pittsburgh Steelers could get some familiar faces back on Sunday in Baltimore.

Coach Mike Tomlin said Tuesday wide receiver Antonio Brown should play and he's "encouraged" by safety Troy Polamalu's progress from a right calf injury. The coach said there's also "a chance" starting quarterback Ben Roethlisberger's sprained right shoulder will be good to go, though backup Charlie Batch will work with the first team early in the week.

The Steelers (6-5) have dropped two straight with Roethlisberger sidelined, including an eight-turnover debacle last Sunday in Cleveland.

Polamalu has played just five quarters all season after injuring the calf in the opener at Denver and aggravating the injury against the Eagles on Oct. 7. Brown has missed the last three games after injuring his ankle in a victory over the New York Giants on Nov. 4.
