The Pittsburgh Steelers were blown out by the Philadelphia Eagles 34-3 on Sunday and if that wasn’t enough, the team also suffered several injuries during the game. During his post game press conference, head coach Mike Tomlin recapped the health of his team.
According to Tomlin, linebacker Ryan Shazier re-aggregated his MCL during the first quarter of the game. Additionally, he said that safety Robert Golden suffered a hamstring injury. While Shazier tried to return to the game, he eventually bowed out for good during the second quarter. Golden, on the other hand, never returned to the game and was replaced by rookie safety Sean Davis.
As for guard Ramon Foster, he suffered either a chest or an elbow injury on Sunday.
“I don’t know which one,” Tomlin said.
Foster entered Sunday’s game as questionable with an elbow injury and was replaced in the first half at left guard by B.J. Finney.
Linebacker Lawrence Timmons suffered a lower leg injury during the game and after having to go to the hospital, Tomlin said he’s now on his way back to the team.
Wide receiver Eli Rogers suffered a foot injury, according to Tomlin, and safety Mike Mitchell has a knee injury that’s currently being evaluated.
The Steelers will next play the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 4 Sunday at Heinz Field.
