The Pittsburgh Steelers moved to 4-1 on the season Sunday at Heinz Field with their 31-13 win over the New York Jets and after the game head coach Mike Tomlin ran down the list of injured players.
According to Tomlin, defensive end Cameron Heyward suffered a hamstring injury while safety Shamarko Thomas suffered a groin injury. Both injuries happened in the first half and neither player returned to the game.
Heyward said after the game he had an MRI on his left hamstring and is awaiting the results.
Heyward didn't sound particularly optimistic. Had MRI. Awaiting results but sounded like a guy who may be out a bit.
