Not a lot went right for the Pittsburgh Steelers in their Sunday night home loss to the Buffalo Bills and especially on the offensive side of the football. While the team did suffer their sixth loss of the season Sunday night, it does sound like they came out of their fourteenth regular season game fairly healthy.
After the game, Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin was asked if his team came out of the loss fine injury-wise.
“To my knowledge,” Tomlin said. “Probably some bumps and bruises associated with play, but such is life. I’ll update you guys on Tuesday.”
The Steelers had two players miss the Sunday night game with injuries and they were wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster (knee) and tight end Vance McDonald (concussion). Odds are good that McDonald will be back next Sunday and we’ll have to wait and see if Smith-Schuster can get back after missing the last four games.
The Steelers did get tuning back James Conner back from his shoulder injury Sunday night and he turned out to be one of the few bright spots for the offense during the contest. He rushed for 42 yards on eight carries and caught four passes for 9 yards and a touchdown.
The Steelers will play the New York Jets next Sunday on the road and Tomlin will next address the health of the team on Tuesday. We’ll likely know at that time if any significant injuries happened during the team’s Sunday night loss to the Bills.
