6:20 p.m. ET update: Steelers safety Minkah Fitzpatrick did not return following the half, officially ruled out with a knee injury for the remainder of Week 15.

The Pittsburgh Steelers are losing safeties left and right in this Week 15 outing against the Indianapolis Colts, the latest of whom is Minkah Fitzpatrick, who left the game being evaluated for a knee injury. He suffered the knee injury during a collision with teammate Patrick Peterson in coverage.

His departure came just minutes following the ejection of teammate Damontae Kazee, who was ejected for a huge hit to the head against Colts wide receiver Michael Pittman Jr.

Fitzpatrick has been dealing with injuries throughout much of this season, having suffered a hamstring injury that forced him to miss four games in Weeks 9-12. He went on to suffer a broken left hand in his return to play in Week 13, though he’s played through it.

The Steelers officially announced Fitzpatrick as questionable with that knee injury.
