Steelers' head coach Mike Tomlin provided an injury report today during his Tuesday press conference.
From all the players that were injured during the game against the Buffalo Bills, the only player that looks to surely miss the team's next game is Shamarko Thomas.
Thomas' injury is a high-ankle sprain, which occurred during the Bills game after an attempt to tackle wide receiver, Stevie Johnson.
Thomas had seen over 120 snaps on the defensive side of the ball in the four games leading up to Pittsburgh's matchup with Buffalo.
While it appears that the Steelers will have to do without Thomas, there was some positive news on the injury front. Several players were hurt during the game against the Bills, such as Brett Keisel, LaMarr Woodley, Fernando Velascoe and Roman Foster, but all are expected to play against the Detroit Lions after being limited in practice this week.
The rest of the Steelers offensive line also are fighting through injuries, including David DeCastro, Mike Adams, Kelvin Beachum and Marcus Gilbert. Despite the myriad of injures to these four, Tomlin does not expect their preparation for Sunday to be hindered as the week moves forward.
