Last night K Shaun Suisham left the game early after suffering what Coach Tomlin later described as a potentially significant injury. Suisham, who was seen walking out of the locker room on crutches, is awaiting MRI results to determine the severity of his injury.
NFL’s Ian Rapoport reports this morning that the Steelers veteran is telling people he believes he has a torn ACL.
#Steelers K Shaun Suisham has told people the belief is he tore his ACL. He’s having an MRI today to be sure. Will be a tough loss.

Since the team doesn’t have a backup Kicker, expect the Steelers to make some moves quickly to bring in a replacement leg.
