The injuries pile up almost as quickly as the Pittsburgh Steelers’ losses.
Monday it was special teamers Derek Watt and Eric Ebron who were forced into the first half due to injuries from Monday’s game, although fillable linebacker Marcus Allen was able to return after a neck injury in the 27-17 defeat of the Cincinnati Bengals left in the fourth quarter.
« Derek Watt had a concussion and couldn’t come back, Ebron had a back injury and is being examined . . . and Marcus Allen had a sting that he could come back from, « said coach Mike Tomlin after the game.
Watt injured himself in game five when he started awkwardly and collided with returnees Alex Erickson. Watt looked visibly dazed and needed help walking off the field.
Ebron’s injury occurred while trying to catch a second quarter throw but collided with Bengal’s defenders. His absence left the Steelers only with Vance McDonald at the close end of the game. Earlier in the day, the Steelers released Kevin Rader. Rader could perhaps be brought back to the training team. Charles Jones is currently a close end on the training team.
Watt is the only listed defender on the Steelers’ list, although this is a position they rarely take on offense.
In a three game loss from an 11-0 start, the Steelers have five starters on their injured reserve list, and two other players who would have started Monday – James Conner and security guard Kevin Dotson – were eliminated from injury.
