Troy Polamalu has played just two games for the Pittsburgh Steelers this season, and he won't be on the field for a third this week against the Washington Redskins.
Polamalu is hobbled by a calf injury he aggravated Oct. 7 against the Eagles.
Polamalu, 31, is in his 10th season. He played in the regular-season opener on Sept. 9 and returned for the Philadelphia game after three weeks, including the bye week Sept. 30. Coach Mike Tomlin said Polamalu's injury was "significant."
Offensive tackle Marcus Gilbert (ankle) won't play against the Redskins this week. But coach Mike Tomlin said center Maurkice Pouncey and running backs Rashard Mendenhall and Isaac Redman will likely practice this week and be available Sunday.
