Pittsburgh, PA (Sports Network) - Pittsburgh Steelers safety Troy Polamalu will most likely miss Thursday's game against the Tennessee Titans after re- aggravating his right calf injury during Sunday's win over the Eagles.

Polamalu hopped off the field during the second quarter against the Eagles and did not return. The seven-time Pro Bowl selection had not played since the season opener but had a bye week to recover and was a full participant in practice leading up to the Week 5 contest.

"He will probably be deemed out this week because of the week itself being a quick turnaround and the nature of the injury," said Steelers coach Mike Tomlin on Monday. "We will evaluate him when get back from Tennessee. We don't think he will participate."

Tomlin added that linebacker LaMarr Woodley could also miss Thursday's game with a hamstring injury.
