No Major Injuries for Patriots
Steelers' Polamalu Hasn't Practiced
After playing Monday night, a team's practice schedule changes around a bit. Everything is pushed back a day, and that usually means cutting out a day of practice. That's what the Patriots did, spending Tuesday and Wednesday in film sessions, classrooms and meetings and eliminating their regular on-field Wednesday practice.
On Thursday, four players were limited in practice: Ty Warren, Stephen Neal, Rashad Baker, and, of course, Tom Brady. Neal has been suffering his shoulder injury most of the season. None of the other injuries are known to be serious.
Pittsburgh has a problem with safety Troy Polamalu, who reinjured his right knee in practice Wednesday and did not practice Thursday. Polamalu has a pair of sprained ligaments in that knee, and he missed three games earlier in the season. Speculation is that Polamalu will not play Sunday.
