The Pittsburgh Steelers dropped their seventh game of the season Sunday to the Dallas Cowboys and are now in a must-win situation as they head into their final two games of the season against the Cincinnati Bengals and the Cleveland Browns.
The loss included more injuries to the Steelers secondary in addition as head coach Mike Tomlin said in his post game press conference that starting cornerback Keenan Lewis (groin) suffered a groin injury in the second half and reserve cornerback DeMarcus Van Dyke (shoulder) suffered a separated shoulder early in the game while attempting to make a tackle on special teams.
The Steelers came into the game already thin in the secondary as cornerback Ike Taylor (ankle) sat out his second consecutive game Sunday with a fractured ankle as did his replacement Cortez Allen (groin), who missed the game due to a groin injury suffered last Sunday in the loss to the San Diego Chargers.
Wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders (rib) also suffered a rib injury on Sunday according to Tomlin and did not return.
Tomlin will update the status of the injured players on Tuesday during his weekly press conference.
