The Pittsburgh Steelers currently trail the Cincinnati Bengals 3-0 on Monday Night Football and their defensive captain has also left the game early in the first quarter with an injury.
Steelers defensive lineman Cameron Heyward sustained a thigh injury late in the first Bengals offensive possession and he is now questionable to return to tonight’s game, according to Burt Lauten.

Heyward limped off the field after the Bengals offense stalled on their first possession and after getting looked at on the sideline he went down the tunnel to the locker room.
UPDATE: Heyward has returned to the game.
