Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin wasted no time revealing the status of both safety Troy Polamalu (calf) and offensive lineman Marcus Gilbert (ankle) on Tuesday, announcing that each player will be out on Sunday against the New York Giants.
For Polamalu, he will miss his fourth consecutive game, while Gilbert will be out for the third straight week.
Tomlin also remained unsure of his running back situation heading into Sunday, as Rashard Mendenhall (Achilles) was cleared for limited individual work, but is unlikely to practice until Thursday at the earliest.
For the Giants, the arrival of Hurricane Sandy has forced them to push their normal schedule back a day, so they will proceed as if they played on Monday night. They will not have practice until Wednesday following Tom Coughlin's press conference, with their first injury report coming shortly thereafter.
Giants 101 will update the statuses of Antrel Rolle, Chase Blackburn, Keith Rivers and Bear Pascoe as news becomes available.
