Coach Tomlin gave some injury updates during his post-game press conference after tonight’s 37-19 win over the Carolina Panthers. Ike Taylor broke his forearm. Jarvis Jones suffered a right wrist injury and Ryan Shazier suffered an injury to his right knee. Tomlin said that the two linebackers were still being evaluated.
“Obviously we have some adjustments to make,” said Tomlin. “We had some guys go down with significant injuries in this game. Ike Taylor broke his forearm. Shazier has a knee injury that is being evaluated. Jarvis Jones has a wrist injury that is being evaluated. I’ll let you know more about that when we get back to Pittsburgh.”
According to Mark Kaboly of the Trib, Jarvis Jones says he’ll be back next week.
Saw Jarvis Jones. Had wrist wrapped with plastic guard. Said he is OK and will be back next week. Not quite sure about that.
