Found October 27, 2012 on NFL Injury Report:
The Pittsburgh Steelers will be without safety Troy Polamalu and running back Rashard Mendenhall tomorrow when they take on the Washington Redskins. Both players have been ruled out for tomorrow’s contest, while running back Isaac Redman will likely be a game-time decision. Polamalu has been dealing with a calf injury that’s caused him to miss much of the season. Mendenhall was able to return from major knee surgery earlier this season only to injure his Achilles. The Steelers will also be without offensive lineman Marcus Gilbert (ankle) and linebacker Brandon Johnson (hamstring). Redman has been hampered by an ankle injury, but he was able to practice Friday after being limited earlier in the week. He is hoping to join running back Jonathan Dwyer in the Steelers’ backfield against the Redskins. Center Maurkice Pouncey (knee), safety Will Allen (ankle), linebackers Adrian Robinson (concussion), Chris Carter (hamstring) and Jason Worilds (illness) and kicker Shaun Suisham (ankle) are all listed as probable to play.
