03:25 PM ET 10.23 | Pittsburgh Steelers strong safety Troy Polamalu has already been ruled out of Sunday's Week 8 matchup against the Washington Redskins, according to head coach Mike Tomlin on Tuesday afternoon. Polamalu is still struggling with the lingering effects of a calf injury that was sustained in Week 1 against the Denver Broncos. After missing several weeks, the 31-year-old veteran was able to return in Week 5's victory over the Philadelphia Eagles. However, he was unable to finish the game after re-aggravating the injury while chasing after quarterback Michael Vick.

As you get older, the healing slows down. Unless you are taking HGH and a bunch of other stuff, I mean.

Ray Lewis, Green Bay's Woodson, now Palomalu.

True but on the Steelers Troy is the exception. Look at the rest of the injuries DeCastro, Gilbert, Redman, Pouncey, Mendenhall,,, The oldest of them is 27. Young guys get injured too.

He had like 3 weeks off, right after the injury happened. And this will be his second three week vacation.

Injuries happen, but it seems like Polamalu needs to change how he trains or how he plays to offset this constant trouble he has with his calves and hamstrings.

If he retires he doesn't have to worry how he Trains or he can play at half speed and have everyone beat him or the Team can sit him until he's as close to 100% as Possible!
