Fans don't need to be reminded of the 34-3 thrashing of the Pittsburgh Steelers by the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 3, but they certainly will as the team suffered a number of injuries throughout the game. As the team now prepares for a Sunday Night Football game against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 4, head coach Mike Tomlin addressed the media, and helped fill in the blanks in regards to the team's injury situation in the immediate future.

The list was long, and not very optimistic for the team's outlook entering Week 4.

The following players were listed as "very questionable":

Ryan Shazier (Knee)
Ramon Foster (Chest)
Eli Rogers (Turf Toe)
Robert Golden (Hamstring)

There were other injuries of note, but Tomlin labeled them as being "day-to-day":

Lawrence Timmons (puncture wound to leg)
Sean Davis (Back)
Roosevelt Nix (Back)
Cody Wallace (Knee)

The 2-1 Steelers will play just their second home game of 2016 when the Chiefs come to Heinz Field on Sunday. With Kansas City being an AFC team, this game will hold more significance than the Week 3 game against the Eagles due to the possible tie breaker ramifications between the two AFC powerhouses.

Stay tuned to BTSC for the latest on the Steelers, and their injuries, moving forward.
