Troy Polamalu, Mike Mitchell, and Matt Spaeth were all sidelined today due to injuries they sustained during the Falcons game on Sunday. Polamalu is nursing a knee injury and Mitchell is out due to a groin injury. Tomlin said yesterday that Spaeth hyper-extended his elbow and will have it in a protective brace this week.
Maurkice Pouncey and Ike Taylor were limited today in practice. Pouncey due to an ankle injury, and Ike because of his lingering shoulder and forearm injuries.
Some good news on the injury front- both James Harrison (knee) and Marcus Gilbert (ankle) were full participants today. Tomlin told the media yesterday that Gilbert’s participation in practice would be their guide towards his starting against the Chiefs. If Gilbert finishes the week without any setbacks, you’d have to imagine he’ll start on Sunday.
