Depends on Degree


Polamalu has an MCL tear and should not need surgery. Of course, there are three grades. The time he misses will depend on the severity. I'd say if it's one, then he'll be out three weeks. If it's three then that's hard to tell -- it could be six or more and will hinder him rest of season.
