Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin addressed the injury situation Monday during his press conference and it included a little bit of bad news.
As expected, cornerback Curtis Brown (knee) will miss the remainder of the season as he tore the ACL in his left knee Sunday in the win over the Cleveland Browns. Brown will be placed on injured reserve and surgery will be forthcoming.
Due to the timing of the injury, Brown more than likely will start training camp on the Active PUP list.
As for nose tackle Steve McLendon (ankle) he will miss the game against the Baltimore Ravens with a left ankle sprain. He is currently in a walking boot and using crutches to get around on.
As for defensive end Brett Keisel (foot), Tomlin expects him to work this week with an toward him playing Thursday night against the Ravens. The same can be said about linebacker LaMarr Woodley (calf) and safety Shamarko Thomas (ankle). What those three players are able to do Tuesday in practice will be significant, according to Tomlin.
Linebacker Stevenson Sylvester (hamstring) is not looking good for this week. Tomlin said he will be monitored like the others.
