Below is a recap and talking points from the press conference today.
Mike Tomlin opened by saying he still has no explanation for how they preformed Sunday against the Ravens.
Tomlin confirmed torn triceps of Willie Colon and says he will “probably go on IR.” Colon had surgery this morning. Marcus Gilbert will start at right tackle. Tomlin said all other injuries are minor and in-game type injuries. Gilbert will be held to same standard. Tomlin said they will work out a couple of tackles today as far as depth standpoint.
Tomlin said James Harrison is fine and they will monitor Jerricho Cotchery and rookie Chris Carter who are both trying to recover from hamstring injuries.
Tomlin broke out a new Tomlinism today and said, “There\’s a fine line between drinking wine and squashing grapes. Last week we were squashing grapes.” Tomlin said the Ravens did not do anything earth shattering on Sunday, they just executed better.
Tomlin on positives from Sunday said Daniel Sepulveda punted the ball well.
Doug Legursky will stay at right guard as he thought he played well enough.
