The hits keep coming for the Steelers.

Hours after Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said he expects center Maurkice Pouncey and linebacker Larry Foote to miss the rest of the season with injuries suffered in today’s loss to Tennessee comes news that running back LaRod Stephens-Howling has also been lost for the season.

Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports reports that Stephens-Howling suffered a torn ACL and will miss the remainder of the year.

The Steelers were hoping Stephens-Howling would be both their primary kickoff returner and a key part of their offense, and he was their leading rusher today against the Titans. But they won’t get any more out of him this year.

-reported by Pro Football Talk The running back corps is now down to three. Le'Veon Bell (recovering from a foot injury) , Felix Jones and Isaac Redman. The Steelers now have lost three players from their team for the season in just one game! Will their primary focus go to the passing game to carry them until they either get Bell back to shore up and invigorate their running game ?
