Steelers Injury Report: Jones Suffered Sprained Ankle, Spence Hamstring Injury

The Pittsburgh Steelers beat the Cleveland Browns 30-9 Sunday at Heinz Field and after the game head coach Mike Tomlin went over the injuries the team suffered in the game

“Landry Jones had an ankle sprain and it’s going to be evaluated,” said Tomlin. “Don’t know the extent of that. And Sean Spence had a hamstring and don’t know the extent of that. We’ll take a look at these guys and do what’s appropriate. Will be a great opportunity for us as we get into the bye to get some of these bumps and bruises taken care of and be a team that’s hopefully got an upward trajectory as we come out of it.”

As far as quarterback Ben Roethlisberger goes, Tomlin said he “perked-up” during the latter part of the week and that’s what led to him dressing Sunday as the team’s No, 2 quarterback.

“He spent the vast majority of the week rehabilitating,” said Tomlin of Roethlisberger, who had to enter the game in the first quarter after Landry Jones went down injured. “He had little to no in-helmet preparation in terms of what the game plan was. So we gave the start to Landry because he did. We felt comfortable with his overall readiness. We knew that we would have Ben available to us probably in a limited capacity just from a preparedness standpoint.”

The Steelers enter their bye week with a 6-4 record.
