Steelers to update status of safety Polamalu

By Pittsburgh The Tribune-Review
Tuesday, Nov. 29, 2011
 

The Steelers provided no update Monday on Pro Bowl safety Troy Polamalu, who exited the game early Sunday night with what coach Mike Tomlin said were "concussion-like symptoms."

Polamalu appeared to lobby the coaches to go back into the game but was rebuffed.

"We just wanted to err on the side of caution," said Tomlin, who will update Polamalu's status today at his weekly news conference. "That's why we didn't let him return to the game."

Tomlin also is expected to give an update on linebacker LaMarr Woodley, who hasn't played since Oct. 30 because of a balky hamstring.
