UPDATE: Freiermuth has a concussion and has been ruled out, per Lauten.
After taking a major blow, tight end Pat Freiermuth went down as a teammate immediately called for trainers. Freiermuth appeared to take a hit to the head and went down and didn’t immediately get up. He walked off the field with the help of two trainers and headed immediately to the locker room. He’s likely to go in concussion protocol and probably won’t return again today.
Yet another injury in the secondary as Levi Wallace went down and looked a bit woozy after a first down run by Devin Singletary. Wallace was being looked at by trainers on the field and given that it looked like a potential head injury, I wouldn’t expect to see Wallace back today, especially with Pittsburgh down 31-3. Per Lauten, Wallace is in the locker room and in concussion protocol.
After a run by Devin Singletary early in the third quarter, defensive lineman DeMarvin Leal went down with an injury. He was one of the Steelers’ few positives on an otherwise nightmarish day. Hopefully, it’s not a serious injury. He was being attended to on the field by team trainers.
The Steelers’ injuries in the secondary continue to pile up, as Cam Sutton has been ruled out with a hamstring injury, per a tweet from Burt Lauten. He came into the game banged up but wasn’t able to finish it. With Josh Allen already having over 300 yards, expect him to take further advantage of the depleted Steelers secondary.
After Josh Allen’s fourth touchdown pass, James Pierre went down in the end zone and was attended to by trainers. He got off the field and ran off the field under his own power. It’s unknown what his injury is or the severity of it.
Defensive lineman Larry Ogunjobi is heading to the locker room, per a tweet from WPXI’s Jenna Harner. Ogunjobi dealt with a Lisfranc injury this offseason but he’s been healthy all year. It’s not yet known what sort of injury Ogunjobi is dealing with, but we’ll update you when we know.
UPDATE: Sims has returned to the game.
Per Burt Lauten, Steelers WR Steven Sims suffered an eye injury pregame and is questionable to return. Sims was expected toi be the Steelers’ kick and punt returner today with Gunner Olszewski inactive after two fumbles on the season. With Sims out, Pittsburgh will have to turn to James Pierre to return kicks and punts. On the Bills’ first kickoff, Pierre fumbled the return and the Bills recovered, with them already leading 7-0.
