Pittsburgh Steelers: Injury Report following Week 3 loss to Bears

CHICAGO, IL - SEPTEMBER 24: Jordan Howard
CHICAGO, IL - SEPTEMBER 24: Jordan Howard /

The Pittsburgh Steelers took a tough loss to the Chicago Bears on Sunday and here is a recap of the injuries from that game. Coach Mike Tomlin recapped the injuries after the game.

The Steelers had another injury to their offensive line as Ramon Foster injured his hand in the loss against the Chicago Bears. He did not finish the game. This sounds like a relatively minor injury and I think Foster is week to week.

Sean Davis, the Steelers strong safety, injured his ankle against the Bears and did not finish the game as well. J.J. Wilcox got some more playing time in response to this.

Jesse James has been battling an ankle injury and missed part of Sunday’s game. He was able to finish.

The Steelers also had four inactives in the game that are dealing with injuries.

Stephon Tuitt has been dealing with a biceps injury and did not dress for the game against the Bears. I expect he will play next week against the Ravens barring an injury.

Marcus Gilbert did not play and is dealing with a hamstring injury. The hope is that he can get back on the field sooner rather than later. Chris Hubbard has been playing right tackle in place of him.

T.J. Watt is a key defender and they missed his run stopping ability against the Bears. He is dealing with a groin injury.

Jerald Hawkins is dealing with a knee injury and has progressed and regressed in terms of practice participation. The Steelers would probably have him on the inactive list either way, but the Steelers would like to get him back to start developing on the field. Hawkins is viewed as a project and was on injured reserve last year.

Mike Tomlin also said there were some bumps and bruises so we will have to wait for Wednesday’s practice report to see if any other injuries emerged.
