Pittsburgh Steelers All-Pro safety Troy Polamalu sprained the medial collateral ligament in his left knee late in the first half of their 13-10 overtime victory against Tennessee on Thursday night.

Coach Mike Tomlin said the injury usually sidelines a player from 3 to 6 weeks.Polamalu was injured when a Titans player fell on him as Steelers defensive end Aaron Smith blocked a 31-yard field goal attempt by Rod Bironas with about three minutes left in the half. Polamalu was attempting to pick up the ball.
Before getting hurt, Polamalu made a one-handed interception and led both teams in tackles with six.
Tomlin said there is a chance the injury could be worse once further tests are run.

Oddsmakers from online sports book Sports Interaction have made the Steelers 9/1 to win Super Bowl XLIV and 9/2 to win the AFC Championship. Although without their All-Pro safety, those odds could change soon.
