The Pittsburgh Steelers safety Troy Polamalu did not finish Sunday’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals because of injury on left knee. While his teammates were facing 18-12 loss to the Bengals, he was undergoing tests on his reinjured knee without wearing his NO.43 Steelers jersey.
A previous injury on the same knee had caused Polamalu to miss four games before he returned on Oct. 18 to play against the Cleveland Browns. Hopefully this time the injury is less serious and won’t hold him out for long, as he was escorted to the locker room by physician James Bradley instead of a team trainer.
The five-time Pro Bowl player was injured while tackling Cedric Benson during Cincinnati’s opening possession. Flexing his knee after coming off the field, Polamalu left for the locker room shortly later. Undergoing an MRI exam while the game was ending, the safety even did not watch how his team Sunday’s game.
