Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin met the media on Monday to talk about the loss on Sunday to the Cincinnati Bengals as well as the upcoming season finale against the Cleveland Browns.
Tomlin gave an update of the injuries suffered in the game sand said running back Baron Batch (arm) suffered an arm fracture and that he had surgery to repair it Monday morning. He will be moved to injured reserve this week.
Tight end Heath Miller suffered a torn ACL and MCL in his right knee and Tomlin indicated that he might have hit the trifecta with a PCL tear as well. Tomlin did not want to speculate as far as what the recovery time will be his tight end. Miller of course will be facing surgery but Tomlin did not disclose if that has been scheduled yet. Tomlin called the play of Miller this season, “rock solid”.
Wide receiver Mike Wallace (hip) has a hip rotator strain, guard David DeCastro (hamstring) has a left hamstring strain, and cornerback Curtis Brown (ankle) injured his left ankle on Sunday.
Tomlin did not indicate whether or not cornerback Ike Taylor (ankle) or tackle Mike Adams (ankle) would play Sunday.
Tomlin said that injuries will drive the personnel moves that will be made this week. You can expect Batch and Miller to be placed on injured reserve for starters.
