Some unfortunate news to begin today’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals. Stephon Tuitt left the game on the Bengals first drive with an apparent knee injury.
Tuitt was checked out on the sidelines by Dr. James Bradley before walking off to the locker room. The Steelers have called it a right knee injury and his return is questionable.
The Steelers are down to four defensive linemen. L.T. Walton now appears to be the left end with Ricardo Mathews the right end. Daniel McCullers is now the only man off the bench.
We’ll update you when the team does on Tuitt’s status.
UPDATE: Tuitt has been ruled out for the rest of the game.
