The Pittsburgh Steelers dropped to 4-3 on the season Sunday thanks to their 23-13 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs on the road at Arrowhead Stadium and after the game, head coach Mike Tomlin discussed the injury situation.
According to Tomlin, cornerback William Gay suffered a shoulder injury during the game. Additionally, he noted that fellow cornerback Antwon Blake was able to return after leaving the game late in the second half to get checked for a possible concussion.
“William Gay’s got a shoulder, he wasn’t able to finish the game,” said Tomlin. “We’ll evaluate him.”
Gay hasn’t missed a game during his career. That streak is now in jeopardy.
Several Steelers missed Sunday’s game due to injuries and that list of players includes quarterback Ben Roethlisberger (knee), quarterback Mike Vick (hamstring), defensive end Stephon Tuitt (knee), safety Will Allen (ankle) and linebacker Terence Garvin (knee).
Tomlin said after the game that the plan is for Roethlisberger to return next week for their Week 8 home game against the Cincinnati Bengals at Heinz Field.
