Less than a day after their season-opening victory against the Tennessee Titans, the Steelers have not issued any more news on the injury to safety Troy Polamalu, who sprained his left knee late in the second quarter and did not return.
Polamalu sprained the medial collateral ligament in his knee and Coach Mike Tomlin's early diagnosis was it could be three to six weeks before the five-time Pro Bowl safety returns.
But Tomlin and team president Art Rooney II did not have any more information on the extent of the injury today and there may not be any update until Monday when the players return to practice following three days off.
Meantime, the Steelers have not made a roster moves to allow for Polamalu's absence, and probably won't.
