Found December 21, 2012 on NFL Injury Report:
While Pittsburgh Steelers offensive lineman Mike Adams was able to practice at a limited capacity on Thursday, safety Troy Polamalu and cornerback Keenan Lewis were sidelined due to injury. Lewis sustained a hip flexor during a Week 14 matchup against the San Diego Chargers and aggravated the injury last weekend against the Dallas Cowboys. He apparently once again aggravated it during Wednesday’s practice and didn’t suit up yesterday as a result. Pittsburgh finds itself extremely thin at corner as they have already ruled veteran Ike Taylor out for this weekend’s matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals. Polamalu was given the day off due to a non-injury-related issue, most likely so the team can better ensure his health for this weekend’s pivotal contest against the Bengals. While Adam was able to return to practice at a limited capacity, he is not expected to play this weekend.

Steelers CB Keenan Lewis Suffers Setback at Practice

Steelers CB Keenan Lewis injured his knee at practice by stepping into a hole, according to Gerry Dulac.

Current Steelers offensive line offers insight into the future

Far be it from me to look ahead to 2013 for the Steelers, since they are still right in the thick of the playoff chase, but some things are coming into focus nonetheless. It’s funny how things work out sometimes in the NFL, but it’s also not exactly an odd ball occurrence either. Players get injured, underachieve, or the front office makes decisions mid season that carry over...

Top-ranked Steelers defense lacking in big plays

The Pittsburgh Steelers lead the NFL in total defense, as usual. They're near dead last, though, in snarl. The Steelers (7-7) rank near the bottom of the league in turnovers and sacks, the kind of big plays that made them one of the most dominant units in football during the team's run of three Super Bowl appearances in six years. While injuries to safety Troy Polamalu...
