Steelers injuries: Troy Polamalu could miss rest of month

The Pittsburgh Steelers could be without safety Troy Polamalu until after Halloween, after he re-injured his right calf against the Tennessee Titans on Thursday night. Polamalu is expected to miss four weeks, according to Steelers Depot.

Polamalu's absence was felt as the Titans gashed the middle of the field for big gains on the way to their game-tying touchdown drive. Tennessee picked up large chunks of yards again as the Titans engineered a last-minute drive for a game-winning field goal as time expired.

The Steelers have already been without Polamalu for multiple games this season.. He missed two weeks after an injury to his calf in the season-opening loss to the Denver Broncos. The Steelers have struggled without their Pro Bowl safety in the lineup, and have stumbled out of the gate to a losing record at 2-3.

Pittsburgh will face the Cincinnati Bengals, without Polamalu, in its next game on Oct. 21.
