Found November 07, 2012 on NFL Injury Report:
Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin announced yesterday that the team is expected to be without wide receiver Antonio Brown while running back Jonathan Dwyer is expected to return from injury this weekend against the Kansas City Chiefs. Tomlin added that safety Troy Polamalu could return in two weeks when the Steelers take on the Baltimore Ravens, reports Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. It appears that Antonio Brown and Chris Rainey are out, and Jonathan Dwyer is in. Some of the most important injury news Mike Tomlin presented Tuesday, however, was that Troy Polamalu may return in time to play Nov. 18 against the Baltimore Ravens. Brown sustained what he called a minor high ankle sprain against the New York Giants last weekend. This injury can sideline players for an extended period, and the wide receiver is at least expected to miss one week of action. Dwyer sat out vs. the Giants after his impressive performance against the Washington Redskins. He will return this weekend, but fellow running back and return specialist Chris Rainey is not expected to play. Polamalu has played sparingly this season due to an injured calf. Though the Steelers shouldn’t need him on the field to defeat the Chiefs, he would offer the team a boost in their pivotal matchup the following week vs. the Ravens.

So is it the “hot hand” or is it Rashard Mendenhall for the Steelers?

As the season moves along for the Steelers we might be finding ourselves in the middle of a running back controversy in Pittsburgh. Now, by controversy I don’t mean something that necessarily divides the team like a quarterback controversy can but rather who Mike Tomlin will start vs who everybody else (including the players and coaches) thinks should start. So far we’ve seen...

Calls like the one Mike Tomlin made in the fourth quarter of yesterday’s win over the New York Giants are the type that make sports talk radio thrive.
