The Pittsburgh Steelers were missing a lot of players against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 2 of the preseason, but few were actually injured. The team was without Ben Roethlisberger, DeAngelo Williams, Le'Veon Bell and Antonio Brown, as the quartet was given the night off for the second straight week.
After the Steelers 17-0 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles Thursday night, the team left healthy again, but head coach Mike Tomlin did say backup interior lineman Cody Wallace suffered a potential hyperextended knee.

There is no way of suggesting how much time, if any, Wallace could miss with the injury. The team will evaluate the injury, but any injury which could see Wallace miss regular season action could cripple the team's depth along the offensive line.
There was some good injury news for Pittsburgh, and that was center Maurkice Pouncey played almost half of the first quarter and left the game unscathed. This was Pouncey's first game in almost a calendar year, and he was able to get the rust off with two games remaining before the regular season begins.
The Steelers, having officially left Saint Vincent College and training camp, will now prepare for their third preseason game next Friday when they travel to play the Saints.
