The Steelers lost Maurkice Pouncey and Larry Foote to season-ending injuries in Sunday's 16-9 loss to Tennessee. LaRod Stephens-Howling also went down and didn't return. We have all the latest news on a shocking season-opener in Pittsburgh.
A report surfaced Sunday evening Steelers RB LaRod Stephens-Howling suffered a torn ACL in Pittsburgh's Week 1 loss to Tennessee. If confirmed, it would be the third player lost to significant injury from that game.
With the possibility of including LaRod Stephens-Howling in the Steelers' Bloody Sunday injury report following the loss to Tennessee, "the standard is the standard" isn't going to cut it. But what else can they do?
The Steelers brought in LaRod Stephens-Howling to be their passing down running back this year. Assuming his injury isn't significant, it appears the Steelers will have to do a lot of passing this season.
It doesn't look good for the Steelers' All Pro center. Maurkice Pouncey was taken off on a cart after suffering what appeared to be a significant knee injury in the first quarter of the Steelers' Week 1 game against Tennessee.
