Steelers Safety Troy Polamalu to Sit vs Jets Sunday

In the scheme of things, Troy Polamalu has had a rather large hand in the Steelers four-game winning streak, more so the past two weeks in wins over the Ravens and Bengals.

This week though things may have to take a drastic turn, as reports state that Polamalu will sit Sunday vs the Jets due to a lower-leg injury that he re-injured during his45-yard interception return for a touchdown against the Bengals.

Polamalu has yet to practice this week, which for Wednesday and Thursday isn’t a surprise, but he isn’t on the field today, which is a switch, and therefore comes the report he won’t go Sunday.

He will be replaced in the starting lineup by Ryan Mundy or Will Allen. Despite aggravating his injury in the second quarter against the Bengals, Polamalu never missed a play and even had a second interception in the fourth quarter.

So now the team will have to have others come up with big plays vs Mark Sanchez and the Jets, as it’s been Polamalu that had the big hit vs Joe Flacco two weeks ago that gave the Steelers the opportunity to win the game, and his pick vs Carson Palmer got the team back in the game vs Cincy.
