The Pittsburgh Steelers secured a spot in the 2014 playoffs Sunday with 20-12 win over the Kansas City Chiefs and it looks like the team also won on the post game injury report.
“Came out of this thing I think relatively injury-free,” head coach Mike Tomlin said during his post game press conference.
While quarterback Ben Roethlisberger (knee) did go to the locker room to have his right knee checked after throwing a short touchdown pass to wide receiver Antonio Brown late in the third quarter, he never missed an offensive snap, however.

After the game, Roethlisberger shrugged off the injury and said he’ll be fine, according to Scott Brown of ESPN.com.
The Steelers were without the services Sunday of safety Troy Polamalu (knee), tight end Matt Spaeth (elbow) and cornerback Ike Taylor (shoulder, forearm) as all three were inactive with injuries. Tomlin will likely update the status of the team Tuesday duuring his weekly press conference.
The Steelers will now host the Cincinnati Bengals next Sunday at Heimnz Field and a win will result in them winning the AFC North division.
