PITTSBURGH -- Steelers Pro Bowl safety Troy Polamalu did not return for the second half against Tennessee Titans and is ruled out for the game.
Polamalu was trying to recover a blocked field goal in the first half when Titans tight end Alge Crumpler fell awkwardly on Polamalu’s left knee. We will try to get an update on Polamalu’s status after the game.
Tyrone Carter is playing in place of Polamalu and it will be interesting to see how the Steelers respond in their season opener without one of their top players.
