Steelers' Troy Polamalu could return against Ravens in Week 11

Charles LeClaire-US PRESSWIRE

Troy Polamalu will sit for at least another week, as Mike Tomlin said the Pittsburgh Steelers' star safety could return for Week 11 against the Baltimore Ravens.

Troy Polamalu will sit out for the Pittsburgh Steelers' Week 10 game against the Kansas City Chiefs, but he could be ready to play in two weeks when the team faces the Baltimore Ravens.

Head coach Mike Tomlin said Tuesday that Polamalu would not play in the Monday Night game this week due to a calf injury that has nagged him all season, but left the door open for an return in the somewhat near future. Will Allen will continue to start at the strong safety spot for the Steelers in this week's game.

Polamalu has only played two games for the Steelers all season: the team's season opener, when he injured his calf, and Week 5, when he played again and aggravated the injury. He hasn't played since. The Steelers' defense hasn't necessarily struggled without the seven-time Pro Bowler and 2010 Defensive Player of the Year, allowing 18.8 points per game, but his return will certainly help.
