Steelers safety Troy Polamalu will miss Sunday’s game against the Chiefs, according to a league source, and a return by the crucial Week 12 meeting with the Ravens is remote at this point.

Polamalu suffered his second knee injury of the season in a loss to the Bengals last weekend.

The Steelers are hopeful the injury will not keep Polamalu out of more than three games total, and the team will be cautious about how quickly he returns.

I think deep down, we all kind of figured he'd miss a game or two but we need him healthy for the stretch run. Though his presence will be sorely missed, there is no sense rushing him back before he's totally ready.

We need him to get healthy for the playoffs.

Hope he's 100% for the last 2 games (Rats at home and Fins in Miami) and of course in the playoffs.

Go Troy :tt:

I'm really starting to think this Madden curse is for real.

In which case, I'd like to submit my suggestion for next year's cover art:

Its Larry Fitzgerald hurt yet?

I just want Troy 100% when we need him the most. And it isn't against the passing attack of the Chiefs.

We need Troy for the playoffs and, I just hope he will be okay. We are a different team without #43.

Let's just hope we don't lose any more games because Troy isn't out there. We will not get to the playoffs if we lose much more. The D is still good but it has holes when Carter has to play for Troy. Not bashing Carter but he makes Lebeau totally change his schemes when he is in Troy's spot. He is better at replacing Clark's position with Troy out there with him. Timmons need to step his game up a notch when Troy isn't there. Woodley needs to get going too.

He can have an entire month off.

I'd like to have him back for Baltimore, but if it means having him healthy for the playoffs, sit him out.

We've got KC, Baltimore, Cleveland and Oakland in the next 4 games....I think we'll survive.

Madden curse or not the most important thing is that troy gets healty and to not push it too hard to come back so that we can have him healthy when playoff time comes.

So is he having his knee scoped? Most likely if it will be 3 - 4 weeks.

From what I have read he will be back in a couple of weeks. I just hope he heals 100% before he comes back.

If he misses the first Ravens game, then he might as well sit out a whole four weeks. No sense in bringing him back against the Raiders or Browns IMO.

Exactly, the teams thoughts are probably along the lines of, if he can't go at 80% or so by next sunday night, why not sit him until 12/20 against the Packers. If we do not beat the Raiders and Browns without Polamalu, then we aren't a contender anyway.

Sit him until he is 100%. Save Troy for the playoffs.
