New, comments

You can add the name Bud Dupree to the growing list of Pittsburgh Steelers injuries. The rookie outside linebacker out of Kentucky has been ruled out for the remainder of the preseason game against the Buffalo Bills Saturday.

Per Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Dupree suffered a right foot injury. The severity of the injury has yet to be determined and will likely be updated after the game by head coach Mike Tomlin. The loss of Dupree means the Steelers depth at outside linebacker would consist of Arthur Moats, Shayon Green and Anthony Chickillo.

The Steelers are already without Maurkice Pouncey, Stephon Tuitt, Shaun Suisham and along with Dupree's injury have been without a kicker since the second quarter as Garrett Hartley injured his hamstring on a kickoff and hasn't returned.
