Troy Polamalu, LaMarr Woodley ruled out for Week 6: Fantasy implications

Charles LeClaire-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Troy Polamalu (calf) and LaMarr Woodley (hamstring) have been ruled by the Steelers for Thursday's game against the Titans. We break down the fantasy implications.

Troy Polamalu and LaMarr Woodley will miss the Pittsburgh Steelers' Thursday night game against the Tennessee Titans in Week 6, according to ESPN's John Clayton. Polamalu aggravated his lingering calf injury after playing just 19 snaps last week against the Philadelphia Eagles. Woodley also suffered a hamstring injury in the loss.

Fantasy Impact: Fantasy owners in IDP leagues will have to scramble for replacements on relatively short notice. The Steelers' take a signifcant hit as a Team D/ST option in standard leagues as well, though going up against a Matt Hasselbeck-led Titans' offense still makes them a decent option. There is no word yet on the status of either player beyond Week 6. Be sure to check back next week for more.
