PITTSBURGH -- Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Hines Ward will miss his second game in a row Sunday because of a right knee injury that has left him unable to practice since he was hurt Sept. 23 against San Francisco.
Before sitting out last weekend's 21-14 loss at Arizona, Ward had missed only three games to injury in his 10-year NFL career.
The Steelers are off next week, and Ward said it might be wise to rest again this week so the injury has more time to heal.
Questionable means there is a 50-50 chance a player will play.
Polamalu and Hampton were pulled from the Arizona game after getting hurt, but Tomlin did not list either player on his first injury report of the week Tuesday.
Polamalu was initially said to have an abdominal strain, but additional tests run after he returned to Pittsburgh revealed the cartilage problem.
Backup cornerback Bryant McFadden (ankle) is also out of the Seattle game. He was hurt in Arizona.
