As with every year, the player who graces the cover of the EA Sports' Madden football game has been injured.
Its latest victim—Troy Polamalu.
Alge Crumpler rolled up on Polamalu's left knee as Polamalu tried to pick up the live ball and advance it.
The Steelers went on to win the game in overtime 13-10.
In his postgame press conference, according to profootballtalk.com, Mike Tomlin stated that the injury would keep Polamalu out of the lineup for three to six weeks. When asked if the injury could be more severe than they believe, Tomlin responded by saying, "I'm sure it's possible, but we don't have any concrete evidence it's worse than that."
