Steelers plan to have Polamalu return for Week 6

The plan in Pittsburgh is for safety Troy Polamalu to return to practice on a limited basis this week as he recovers from a tornĀ medial collateral ligament in his left knee. Polamalu did take part in a limited portion of practice Wednesday, but his return to game action might be further off.

NFL Network’s Jason La Canfora reports that the Steelers’ timetableĀ for Polamalu is to sit out this week and be ready to play in Week 6 against the Browns, according to a league source.

Polamalu has missed three games since sustaining the injury Sept. 10 against the Titans. He began straight-line running last week and will practice this week while wearing a brace.

“Troy’s been doing well and progressing well,” Steelers coach Mike Tomlin told reporters Tuesday. “Last week, he ran some in a straight line to pretty solid reviews. We’ll take another step to see where he is. … We’ll get him back out there on the practice field and see how he responds to that.”
