Report: Steelers T Levi Brown Injured During Pregame Warmups

Ready for some more potentially bad news? According to Ray Fittipaldo of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, newly acquired Pittsburgh Steelers tackle Levi Brown exited pregame warmups early with a doctor and trainer after possibly injuring his right arm in pass protection drills.

Brown, who the Steelers acquired via a trade with the Arizona Cardinals during the bye week, is scheduled to serve Sunday as the backup tackle to starter Kelvin Beachum against the New York Jets.

The Steelers already deactivated Mike Adams prior to the game, so Guy Whimper would likely become the backup tackle should Jones not be able to play.

UPDATE: According to Ed Bouchette, Brown has a triceps injury. Brown missed the entire 2012 season with a triceps injury.

  • J&LSteeler

    Wow, pre-game injury on newly acquired Levi Brown?! Unbelievable!

  • GunsDontKillWoodleyKills

    what a turd

  • walter mason

    lol

  • Dale

    It seems like we should have been able to reactivate Adams right up until the kickoff. Anyone know the rule on this?

  • WilliamSekinger

    in-actives are set in stone 90 minutes prior to kickoff I believe

  • Rob

    Another great idea from the tomlinator, the apologists will be out in force to protect him.

  • T R

    what idea by tomlin? I think this was front office and Colbert bring him here

  • gene mann

    We don’t have to pay his full salary thankfully . So where do the steelers go now

  • Rob

    Not keeping Adams on the game day roster, was the tomlinators choice. Even if he is bad and he has faced very good defenders he is still better than Whimper who was dressed. Levi was brought in because of more than colbert saying hey we have money let me trade for a tackle that some team is ready to can. It was likely done because the staff was screaming for help.

  • T R

    Well it appears to tomlinator was correct in not dressing Adams. We dint need him. We need the extra TE instead And now Adams will play better after he red the pine if his number is called again. He will get hat next week if he practice well

  • steve

    just cut him now save the pain of watching him play even if he’s healthy
