The Pittsburgh Steelers continue to suffer key injuries as the team prepares for the Indianapolis Colts in Week 16.
The Pittsburgh Steelers are a group that has suffered some key injuries in key positions. The main positions that are turned up are at the left guard and inner linebacker spots. After the team’s 27:17 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals on Monday evening in week 15, injuries are piling up across the board.
After the game, head coach Mike Tomlin traced some injuries that occurred during the game. Per Teresa Varley from Steelers. com:
Coach Mike Tomlin on injuries: Derek Watt – Concussion – Did Not Return, Eric Ebron – Return – Did Not Return, Marcus Allen – Stinger – Was Returning
The injuries sustained during the game were Derek Watt, who left with a concussion and did not return, Eric Ebron, who sustained a back injury and did not return, and Marcus Allen, who had a sting but could get back on the field and play.
Good news came in the form of a tweet from Derek Watt stating that he is fine and not seriously injured.
I just wanted to send a quick message to thank everyone for their good wishes and to let you know that I will be fine.
If the Steelers between Ebron and Allen are to do without these players, they must find players who can fill their vacant positions. In the center-back position, if they could remove Vince Williams from the COVID-19 / reserve list, it would be a welcome addition to the defense. As for the tight end, the Steelers would have to consider promoting someone from their training team to play alongside Vance McDonald in Ebron’s absence.
Some players who missed the game this week and could return and be of great help would be someone like rookie guard Kevin Dotson, who missed the game with a shoulder injury, and James Conner, who missed with a quadriceps injury.
The Steelers have their problems, there is no doubt about that, and injuries are just one area the team suffers. However, getting some key players back will surely help them in their attempt to get the ship back in order with two regular season games before the postseason.
Stay tuned for the latest news and notes regarding the Steelers preparing for the Colts on Sunday Week 16 at Heinz Field.
