Troy Polamalu, Peyton Hillis questionable
By James Walker
We have additional injury updates on the AFC North rivalry game between the Pittsburgh Steelers (11-4) and Cleveland Browns (5-10).
Both Steelers safety Troy Polamalu (Achilles) and Browns tailback Peyton Hillis (ribs) are listed as questionable. Polamalu returned to practice Friday for the first time in weeks to test his Achilles, and the team felt good enough to give him a 50-percent chance of playing in Cleveland. Hillis rested his rib injury this week, but Browns coach Eric Mangini expects his leading rusher to play.
Also from the injury report, Steelers running back Mewelde Moore (knee) is out. Cleveland starting guard Floyd Womack (knee) and defensive linemen Shaun Rogers (ankle, hip) and Kenyon Coleman (knee) are questionable.
