The Pittsburgh Steelers’ injury issues continue with a lower body injury to Devin Bush. Just a quarter after JuJu Smith-Schuster left the game with a shoulder injury, the Steelers were suddenly turning to Robert Spillane alongside Joe Schobert at inside linebacker.

This was because of a leg injury to Bush, per Burt Lauten:

Bush has already missed some time this season with a groin injury, and everyone knows the time he missed last season due to a torn ACL. Whether this was more precautionary or not has yet to be determined, but the hope is the Steelers are able to hold onto the victory over the Denver Broncos in Week 5.

Spillane has been the primary backup all season, and is taking almost all of the snaps in Bush’s stead since he left the game. This status could change, so be sure to stay tuned to BTSC for the latest news and notes surrounding the Pittsburgh Steelers as they continue through the 2021 regular season.

UPDATE

Bush has been ruled OUT for the rest of the game.
