The Pittsburgh Steelers suffered several injuries on Sunday during their 38-3 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles and while several of those players failed to finish the game, it sounds like at least one of them might be just be healthy enough to return for the team’s Week 4 Sunday night game against the Kansas City Chiefs.
According to Missi Matthews of steelers.com, safety Robert Golden said Monday that he has now had an MRI on the hamstring that he injured on Sunday against the Eagles and he hopes to be able to play Sunday night against the Chiefs. He did add, however, that he doesn’t know anything else at this point.

Golden left Sundays game against the Eagles after only playing 10 defensive snaps and he was replaced in the starting defense by rookie safety Sean Davis.
At this point, we’ll have to wait and see whether or not Golden will be able to practice this week and what head coach Mike Tomlin has to say about his prognosis on Tuesday during his weekly press conference.
In other injury news, Steelers linebacker Lawrence Timmons was reportedly able to fly back with the team from Philadelphia after having to go to the hospital due to a deep gash that he received on his lower leg during Sunday’s game.
Timmons reportedly had a stent on his injured shin in the Steelers locker room after returning from the hospital and indicated he would be fine.
Also injured during Sunday’s game were linebacker Ryan Shazier (knee), linebacker Jarvis Jones (ankle), guard Ramon Foster (chest, elbow), wide receiver Eli Rogers (toe, foot) and safety Mike Mitchell (knee). While not a lot is known about the injuries suffered by both Rogers and Foster, the ones suffered by Shazier, Jones and Mitchell don’t appear to be serious at the time of this post and thus one would think all three should be able to play Sunday night against the Chiefs.
