Add RB Mewelde Moore To The List Of Injured Steelers Players
You can add Steelers running back Mewelde Moore to the list of walking wounded following the Steelers loss to the Houston Texans on Sunday as Mike Prisuta is reporting via Twitter that Moore exited the Steelers facility this morning in a walking boot. This makes two running backs injured yesterday as Rashard Mendenhall left the game yesterday with a hamstring injury. This now leaves the Steelers with just two healthy running backs in the form of Isaac Redman and Jonathan Dwyer. Dwyer has been inactive for the first four games of the season.
The Moore injury was not reveled by Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin after the game. He did however say that defensive end Aaron Smith suffered a foot sprain and that linebacker James Harrison suffered blurred vision after getting poked in the eye. Harrison returned to the game and there is some speculation that he may have suffered a concussion. Also injured on Sunday were quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and linebacker Jason Worilds. Early reports say it is just a left foot sprain for Roethlisberger and the injury to Worilds was reported as a left quad injury. Like Roethlisberger, Smith was seen in a walking boot after the game and his status for next week against the Titans is certainly up in the air at this point.
Tomlin will meet the media on Tuesday for his weekly press conference and will likely update the status of the walking wounded. Hopefully there are not anymore that we do not know about at this time outside of the normal bump and bruises.
