Will Allen starts for Steelers in place of inactive Polamalu


With Steelers safety Troy Polamalu out after re-aggravating his calf injury, Will Allen is in tonight’s starting lineup.

The Steelers announced that Allen — and not Ryan Mundy, who started the first three games of the season, first in place of starting safety Ryan Clark and then in place of Polamalu — will start tonight.

In addition to Polamalu, the Steelers’ inactives are quarterback Charlie Batch, running back Jonathan Dwyer, linebacker LaMarr Woodley, linebacker Adrian Robinson, guard Kelvin Beachum and nose tackle Alameda Ta’amu.

The Titans’ inactives are quarterback Jake Locker, running back Javon Ringer, linebacker Patrick Bailey, tackle Mike Otto, guard Deuce Lutui, wide receiver Lavelle Hawkins and defensive tackle DaJohn Harris.
