The Pittsburgh Steelers not only beat the Cleveland Browns on Sunday at Heinz Field it also appears as though the team made it through the game without any of their players suffering serious injury.
While Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin didn’t discuss the health of his team during his post-game press conference following Sunday’s home win over the Browns, the team never reported any injuries throughout the entire game and that’s certainly great news.
The Steelers did have three players miss Sunday’s game due to injuries, however, as running back James Conner (shoulder), wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster (knee) and cornerback Artie Burns (knee) were all inactive for the team’s Week 13 game against the Browns.
Conner and Burns were both able to practice some this past week so perhaps both will be able to do more this coming week. as for Smith-Schuster, he failed to practice any this past week. The Steelers wide receiver was removed from concussion protocol earlier in the week, however, so right now the knee injury he suffered in week 11 is what is keeping him sidelined.
Tomlin will next meet the media on Tuesday and at that time he should provide updates on Conner, Burns and Smith-Schuster in addition to any other players who might have been injured during Sunday’s game that he failed to disclose following the contest.
