Steelers coach Mike Tomlin offered good news and bad news on the injury front today.
Tomlin said center Maurkice Pouncey, who missed Week Seven after suffering an ankle injury in Week Six, will be ready to practice on Wednesday and play on Sunday against the Redskins.
But the bad news on the offensive line is that tackle Marcus Gilbert, who started the first five games of the season but missed last week with an ankle injury, will miss Sunday’s game.
And there’s more bad news on defense, where safety Troy Polamalu, who has missed most of the season with a calf injury, has already been ruled out for at least another week. Polamalu suffered the injury in Week One and returned in Week Five, only to aggravate the injury early in the game.
