Pittsburgh Steelers safety Troy Polamalu missed two games already with a strained calf, and he re-aggravated the injury in Sunday's win over the Philadelphia Eagles, coming out of the game in the first quarter.

He was soon joined by linebacker LaMarr Woodley with a hamstring injury, something that bothered him last season as well.

Ralph N. Paulk of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports that the extent of the injuries are yet unknown, but all things considered, Woodley and Polamalu will likely sit out of Thursday's game against the Tennessee Titans. Injuries of this nature, combined with a short week, don't make their participation seem all that likely.
