All week long, there were expectations that Steelers safety Troy Polamalu was unlikely to suit up for Pittsburgh’s regular season finale.
It looks like those expectations will be proven correct. Jason La Canfora of NFL Network reports that Polamalu will not play against the Dolphins Sunday.
We’ll find out the official word when the inactives are announced. Ricky Williams is also questionable for the Steelers-Dolphins elimination game, but looks likely to play.
If the Steelers win, they will have to wait until the 4PM games to find out if Polamalu will get a chance to return next week.
