Steelers rookie linebacker Ryan Shazier got a little banged up during a red zone drill today. After a big hit on Le’Veon Bell, Shazier limped off the field where trainers attended to him, and wrapped his right knee in ice. Afterward, Shazier was standing and walking on the sideline, and didn’t go to the lockers.
After practice, Coach Tomlin told reporters that there were no significant injuries today- just bumps and bruises. When asked about Ryan Shazier, Mike Tomlin said he got “a little boo-boo”. Apparently Tomlin isn’t concerned about it.
For the defense, Troy Polamalu, Steve McLendon, Jordan Zumwalt, and Hebron Fangupo were in shorts and didn’t participate. Mike Mitchell of course is still out on the PUP list.
On offense, Ben Roethlisberger and Rob Blanchflower were out for today’s activities. According to Tomlin, there is no update on punter Adam Podlesh.
