Steelers Come Out Of Preseason Opener Relatively Healthy

Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin met the media following the Saturday night loss to the New York Giants in the preseason opener and he said the team appears to have got out of the game without several new injuries.

“It looks like we got through the game relatively clean,” said Tomlin. “Sly (Stevenson Sylvester) had an ankle. Don\’t know the severity of it, but I did just see him walking in there, so we\’ll see where he is. All the others appear to be normal bumps and bruises.”

That\’s certainly great news.

Stevenson Sylvester injured his ankle in the second quarter when rookie wide receiver Markus Wheaton flew into his legs after he was getting up from making a tackle on a punt.

I am, I'm me. 40 something, retired and a life long Steelers fan.
