It appears Troy Polamalu has suffered another head injury.

After trying to bring down Chiefs tackle Steve Maneri, a 6-foot-6, 290-pound tackle who had caught a Tyler Palko pass in the first quarter, Polamalu stayed down on the turf and looked dazed before rising to his feet. The Steelers safety returned to the sideline and underwent a concussion test to determine whether he could return to the game.

The fact he hasn’t been on the field since and that, near the end of the second quarter, he was standing on the sideline without his helmet nearby doesn’t bode well for his chances to make another appearance vs. the Chiefs.

Polamalu was sidelined in October after suffering a concussion.

Stupid play results in huge injury. Why would you throw the ball to an offensive lineman in that situration. It wasn't 3rd and 1 or on the goal line where you only need him to catch the ball. He got no yardage and hurt a star player. For what? -1 yards. They should fine the offensive coordinator for stupidity! Of course if they did that BA would owe the league money. Just like Sid, sit down, get better, and come back for the Super Bowl run.

Kind of reinforces the negative side of leading with your head and doing so against a lineman is almost suicide.  Hope Troy reovers fully.  Glad the sideline personnel took the time to "really" gauge his condition instead of just saying.."Man up and get out there".

Troy did not use a cell phone so his wife got to worry about him but all of Goodells rules were followed to the letter.  I'm not a Troy fan but he is a good player who plays hard.  I know this will not come out right but hopefully it was some sort of other type of injury and did not involved his head or brain (you know what I mean).  If it was a concussion, I wonder if they will have to put him down for the rest of the year.  Troy is a gamer and hope this is not serious.  I don't like the guy but I respect him.  Hope it turns out well for him and not serious.

he did not 'try' to bring him down, he knocked him off his feet instantly, awesome tackle not 'try' give him the credit for taking on the behemoth and flattening him.  Sadly his head lost the battle with dude's knee.

He reminds me of that safety that used to play for the colts.

Bob Sanders.......Troy Polamalu plays balls-to-the-wall on every play. It's like being in a car accident 20 times a game. He's bound to get hurt, but you can't fault him for playing his azz off.
