Looks like the Pittsburgh Steelers play the secrecy game as well. This week S Troy Polamalu would not answer questions about his injured knee. Head coach Mike Tomlin instructed him not to speak on the topic.
Well, okay then. Knee injury or not Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports Polamalu will not play against the Chiefs.
This is a major plus for the Chiefs. The Steelers have only allowed 100 rushing yards on two occasions this season - both were games Polamalu missed.
So, one of the top safeties in the game will not play this weekend. His replacement will be Tyrone Carter, who Polamalu says is a solid player.
"There are a lot of strengths that Tyrone has that I lack and vice versa," Polamalu said. "That's why every time I'm in the game, I come to the sidelines, he's in my ear about the previous drive and each play, and where I can improve and what to look out for."
This weekend, it'll be Polamalu on the sidelines getting in Carter's ear.
