It appears that the rumors that Troy Polamalu might be out for the year could be correct. In speaking with reporters earlier this week, he confirmed that his target return date is the Steelers final game against Miami, although he said he hoped he might be back soon.
Either way, Polamalu will not play this week against Green Bay.
Last week conflicting press reports either had Poalmalu on the verge of returning or perhaps out for the year.
The Steelers beleaguered offensive line got more bad news this week, as Mike Tomlin also ruled Chris Kemoatu out for the Green Bay game. Ramon Foster will start in his place.
But, in perhaps might be a piece of good news, Post-Gazette correspondent Ed Bouchette informed during his weekly chat that Isaac "Red Zone" Redman returned to the Steelers practice squad. Redman had been cut prior to the Raiders game to make room for Justin Vincent.
