The Pittsburgh Steelers will be without outside linebacker LaMarr Woodley and safety Troy Polamalu, two key members of a defense that ranks fifth in the NFL through five weeks. Woodley injured his hamstring in Sunday's 16-14 win over the Philadelphia Eagles. In the same game, Polamalu aggravated a calf injury that had sidelined him for several weeks.
For the Tennessee Titans, starting quarterback Jake Locker will miss another game to an injury to his left (non-throwing) shoulder. Starting for the Titans will be veteran Matt Hasselbeck, who has completed 49-of-79 pass attempts for 436 yards with three touchdowns and three interceptions in around 44 percent of the team's offensive snaps this season.
Pittsburgh: QB Charlie Batch, RB Jonathan Dwyer, G Kelvin Beachum, NT Alameda Ta'amu, LB Adrian Robinson, LB LaMarr Woodley, S Troy Polamalu
Tennessee: QB Jake Locker, RB Javon Ringer, WR Lavelle Hawkins, OT Mike Otto, G Deuce Lutui, DT DaJohn Harris, LB Patrick Bailey
