Coach Tomlin addressed the media this afternoon during his pregame press conference. The Steelers have been fortunate on the injury front so far this summer. Here’s a look at the players Coach Tomlin ruled out for Thursday’s game against the Philadelphia Eagles.
TE Eric Waters (Concussion)
CB Shaquille Richardson (Lateral Knee Injury)
OL Cody Wallace (Finger Fracture)
LB Jordan Zumwalt (Groin)
Tomlin also listed LS Greg Warren (Knee) and OG Bryant Browning (Dislocated Shoulder). Warren isn’t expected to return until mid-September and Browning was waived/injured yesterday. He has until 4:00 pm today to pass waivers.
Coach Tomlin said they’d leave the light on for the following players, some of whom will be an 11th hour decision.
S Will Allen (Hamstring)
RB Tauren Poole (Hamstring)
FB/TE Will Johnson (Hamstring)
CB Devin Smith (Hamstring)
There were some players whom Tomlin did not name, but said they’d hold “some other guys” out as they do during this time of year.
