Steelers injury report: Fullback Will Johnson injures hamstring, will not return to game

Justin K. Aller

Steelers fullback goes down with an injury for the second time this preseason. This one was to his hamstring, and he won't return to this game.

Steelers fullback WIll Johnson came off the field limping after a play in the first quarter against the Carolina Panthers, and will not return to the game, Steelers PR manager Burt Lauten tweeted

This is the second injury Johnson has suffered this preseason. He hurt his hip against Washington in the team's second preseason game. Being the fourth preseason game, Johnson likely wasn't going to play much anyway, so it could be something minor.

The Steelers tied the Panthers at seven after a nice drive engineered by rookie quarterback Landry Jones. Despite a drop by rookie Markus Wheaton and sub-standard protection, he made a few nice throws on the drive.

The Steelers gave up an opening drive touchdown to the Panthers and quarterback Derek Anderson, who hit wide receiver Ted Ginn on the score.
