The Pittsburgh Steelers currently lead the Carolina Panthers 10-7 in their preseason finale but there is an injury note to pass along.
Steelers safety Jordan Dangerfield had to leave the game in the second quarter with what the team is calling a left ankle injury. He will not return to tonight’s game.
This injury comes at a bad time as starting safety Mike Mitchell has been sidelined for several weeks with an injury.
Jacob Hagen is likely the fifth safety on the depth chart behind Mitchell, Sean Davis, Robert Golden and Dangerfield, who is also a strong contributor on special teams.
Mike Tomlin will likely update Dangerfield’s status after the game.
UPDATE: Steelers safety Malik Golden also left the game early in the second half with a groin injury. Golden injured himself after intercepting a pass on the Panthers side of the field. He went to the locker room and will not return.
Rookie cornerback Cameron Sutton also left the game in the second half with a hamstring injury and will not return.
