According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, OLB Jarvis Jones will likely need wrist surgery and is sidelined indefinitely.

Arthur Moats looked good last night, but outside linebacker is one of the most depth poor positions on the Steelers roster.
Schefter also reports that Shazier has a sprained MCL and is waiting on an MRI. It’s difficult to speculate as to how long he could be sidelined without more information, but your average MCL sprain carries a 2-4 week recovery timeline.
With Ike Taylor being out of the picture, expect the Steelers to make a move for another CB.
