Description: Steelers safety Troy Polamalu (knee) will not play again in Week 16 versus Kansas City, according to Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
Insight: When healthy he's one of the best in the league at disrupting an offense, but he won't be available. Add value to Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce.
 
11/17/2014 11:32:00 AM
Description: Steelers safety Troy Polamalu (knee) will not play again in Week 11 on Monday night against Tennessee.

Description: Steelers safety Troy Polamalu (knee) will not play in Week 10.
Insight: When healthy he's one of the best in the league at disrupting an offense. Will Allen will take his spot in the lineup. That's three of four opening day starters in the Steelers secondary no longer in the lineup.
 
3/5/2014 8:34:00 PM
Description: The Steelers and safety Troy Polamalu have reached terms on a new three-year contract.
Insight: The deal is worth $20 million. Polamalu was named to his eighth Pro Bowl in 2013. Even at age 32, he's still one of the best defenders in football.
 
12/2/2012 5:15:00 PM
Description: Steelers safety Troy Polamalu finally returned to the field in Week 13 after missing the last seven games and a total of nine this season.
Insight: Polamalu had only played 77 snaps over two games this season due to a calf ailment that he suffered in Week 1.
 
11/27/2012 1:59:00 PM
Description: Jim Wexell of SteelCityinsider.com is reporting that Steelers safety Troy Polamalu is expected to practice Wednesday.
Insight: Polamalu has only played 77 snaps over two games this season due to a calf ailment that he suffered in Week 1. Pittsburgh could certainly use him back in the lineup with the rival Ravens next up on the schedule.
 
11/6/2012 1:55:00 PM
Description: Mike Bires of the Beaver County Times is reporting that Troy Polamalu and Marcus Gilbert have already been ruled out of the Week 10 game against Kansas City.
Insight: Polamalu has only played 77 snaps over two games this season due to a calf ailment that he suffered in Week 1. We might not see him again this season after he aggravated the injury in Week 5 trying to return too soon. Pittsburgh could choose to wait until the safety is 100 percent healthy this time.
 
10/27/2012 3:10:00 PM
Description: According to ProFootballWeekly.com, Steelers safety Troy Polamalu's calf injury is a "serious concern."
Insight: Polamalu has only played 77 snaps over two games this season due to a calf ailment that he suffered in Week 1. We might not see him again this season after he aggravated the injury in Week 5 trying to return too soon. Pittsburgh could choose to wait until the safety is 100 percent healthy this time.
 
10/23/2012 2:08:00 PM
Description: Pittsburgh Tribune-Review's Alan Robinson is reporting that SS Troy Polamalu has been ruled out for Week 8.
Insight: Polamalu left the Week 5 game after aggravating a calf injury and has missed the last two games. The Steelers' defense historically yields about nine points more with Polamalu out of the lineup.
 
10/16/2012 2:08:00 PM
Description: Pittsburgh Post Gazette's Ed Bouchette is reporting that SS Troy Polamalu has been ruled out for Week 7. Bouchette is usually right when it comes to the Steelers.
Insight: Polamalu left Week 5's game after aggravating his calf injury and missed the team's 26-23 upset loss to Tennessee. The Pittsburgh defense historically plays a lot better with him in the lineup and are set to face division rival Cincinnati this Sunday night.
 
10/15/2012 2:37:00 PM
Description: Jason La Canfora doesn't believe that SS Troy Polamalu will play in Week 7.
Insight: Polamalu left Week 5's game after aggravating his calf injury and missed the team's 26-23 upset loss to Tennessee. The Pittsburgh defense historically plays a lot better with him in the lineup and are set to face division rival Cincinnati this Sunday night.
 
10/8/2012 12:49:00 PM
Description: Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said safety Troy Polamalu (calf) will not play Thursday against the Titans, according to Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
Insight: Polamalu left Sunday's game after aggravating his calf injury. The Steelers shouldn't have any problem beating the woeful Titans without him. Polamalu will have nearly two weeks to get healthy for Week 7's game against the Bengals.
 
10/7/2012 2:04:00 PM
Description: Steelers safety Troy Polamalu aggravated his calf injury in the first quarter Sunday against the Eagles. Pittsburgh also lost LaMarr Woodley to a hamstring injury so Philadelphia should have an easier time trying to run its offense.
Insight: Polamalu hopped off the field on one foot and is questionable to return. The safety missed the last two games with the same injury but was able to rest during the bye week. Pittsburgh's defense is always much stronger with Polamalu wreaking havoc.
 
10/2/2012 2:10:00 PM
Description: Coach Mike Tomlin expects Steelers safety Troy Polamalu to return to action on Sunday against the Eagles, according to an Ed Bouchette report.
Insight: Pittsburgh yielded 25 ppg over the first three weeks (they have a bye in Week 4). The additions of Polamalu and James Harrison will make it tougher for fantasy owners of Michael Vick, DeSean Jackson, LeSean McCoy and Brent Celek.
 
9/23/2012 3:17:00 PM
Description: Steelers safety Troy Polamalu is out for Sunday's matchup against the Raiders. He's still dealing with an injured calf.
Insight: Pittsburgh has a bye next week so you can expect Polamalu to be back in action for Week 5's contest versus the Eagles.
 
9/20/2012 1:11:00 PM
Description: Pittsburgh safety Troy Polamalu didn't practice on Wednesday and it looks like a long shot that he'll be able to play Sunday against the Raiders.
Insight: He is still struggling with an injured calf. Polamalu played all 16 games last season but between 2009 and 2010 the star safety missed 13 of the Steelers' 32 contests. We're guessing Polamalu won't be available until after the team's bye week.
 
9/14/2012 3:06:00 PM
Description: Pittsburgh Steelers safety Troy Polamalu is questionable for Sunday's game against the New York Jets with a calf injury.
Insight: According to Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, coach Mike Tomlin was "optimistic Tuesday that the veteran safety would play, but defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau did not sound that way after practice Thursday." It's a huge blow to the Steelers defense is Polamalu doesn't play.

Description: Following his latest "concussion-like" injury, Pittsburgh Steelers safety Troy Polamalu will be a game-time decision against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday afternoon. SOURCE: WTAE-PITTSBURGH
Insight: Polamalu acknowledged after practice on Friday that his aggressive style of play could be responsible for his recent head injuries, but he has been doing it for so long that he knows no other way. "I don't know if it's possible, at this point, to change a style of play. I think that's the case for anybody in the NFL, especially regarding the rules and fines that we have. They're going to continue to happen, just because we're instinctual players at this point," he said.
 
2/1/2011 11:05:00 AM
Description: Polamalu won the NFL defensive player of the year award Monday, despite erroneous reports that gave it to Clay Matthews.
Insight: Polamalu matched his career high with seven picks despite missing two games and parts of two others. ProFootballFocus.com graded him as not even the best defender on his own team, but stats tend to drive this award. (RapidDraft.com)
 
1/11/2011 11:17:00 AM
Description: Steelers DB Troy Polamalu (Achilles/ankle) is expected to be fine to play against the Ravens this weekend, despite having missed practice all last week and not fully practicing again this week.. SOURCE: PITTSBURGH POST-GAZETTE
Insight: Even at less than 100 percent, Polamalu should be a force in the team's divisional game. He missed Weeks 15 and 16, but nabbed an interception upon returning in the matchup against the Browns in Week 17.
