Polamalu will miss game against Kansas City
From the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette:
It was shown again that when Troy Polamalu talks, people will listen, even when he does not say anything. Polamalu spoke publicly for the first time since his latest knee injury Sunday against Cincinnati.
He deferred all questions about his knee or injury -- "Who says there's even a real knee injury, first of all?" -- to coach Mike Tomlin, even when it might have occurred. As he did during his four-game absence to his first knee injury, Polamalu said there are things Tyrone Carter does better than him, such as tackling.
"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."
He acknowledged a level of frustration over his absence because "I want to play football."
Polamalu also warned that it would be wrong for anyone to take the 2-7 Chiefs lightly.
