The Pittsburgh Steelers were again dealt a blow to their secondary by way of a groin injury. This time it was starting cornerback Cam Sutton. He missed the final part of Sunday’s loss to Green Bay, and his status for this Sunday is in question. The Steelers also lost Kevin Dotson to a hip flexor late in the game. He was replaced by veteran BJ Finney.
Coach Mike Tomlin updated their status, and had a surprising announcement of a hip injury for quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.
Roethlisberger is apparently dealing with a hip injury to the same degree as Dotson. Like normal he said that practice will determine their availability for Sunday.
Tomlin said he expects receiver Chase Claypool (hamstring), and tackle Chuks Okorafor (concussion) to return to practice this week. Tomlin also said they will monitor Zach Banner’s progress at practice this week to determine if they can activate him to the 53 man roster. There was no word on Carlos Davis who has missed the last three weeks with a knee injury.
