The Pittsburgh Steelers were able to leave Week 11 without many injuries as they now prepare for a mini-bye.

NFL: Tennessee Titans at Pittsburgh Steelers Philip G. Pavely-USA TODAY Sports

The Pittsburgh Steelers had a handful of injuries after their Week 10 game vs. the Indianapolis Colts, and a few of those injured players were held out of the Week 11 prime time game against the Tennessee Titans.

Mike Tomlin spoke about the injuries after the game, all which were not considered serious by the head coach. Cam Heyward left the game with an undisclosed injury, but was able to come back and play in the waning minutes of the game.

Also mentioned by Tomlin was Anthony Chickillo, who left with an ankle injury, but was also able to return to the game. All other in-game injuries were labeled as ‘Bumps and Bruises’ by Mike Tomlin.

The extended break will also be a great remedy for players like Mike Mitchell (ankle), Vance McDonald (ankle) and James Harrison (back) who all missed Week 11 due to their respective injuries.

Stay tuned to BTSC for the latest on these injuries as the team now rests up prior to playing the Green Bay Packers at Heinz Field on Sunday Night Football in Week 12.
