Polamalu on track to play this week

Troy Polamalu has not had any concussion-related symptoms since returning to Pittsburgh after he was knocked out of Sunday night's 13-9 win over Kansas City, according to Steelers coach Mike Tomlin.

Tomlin told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that he believes Polamalu is on track to play this Sunday when the Steelers host AFC North foe Cincinnati.

"Troy Polamalu hasn't had any concussion symptoms since we got back here," Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said Tuesday at his weekly news conference. "He will have to pass a battery of tests in order to participate (Sunday). We are comfortable at this juncture that it will happen."

Polamalu has had at least seven concussions while playing football, dating back to high school, so naturally there is a major concern anytime he is involved in any type of injury related to the head or neck.

Tomlin said he was also optimistic that linebacker LaMarr Woodley would be able to play vs. the Bengals after missing three games with a hamstring injury.
