Following the Pittsburgh Steelers 30-20 win Sunday night over the Cincinnati Bengals at Heinz Field, head coach Mike Tomlin was asked to update the injury situation during his post game press conference.
According to Tomlin, linebacker LaMarr Woodley (calf) will need to have his injured calf evaluated further. He did say that this is not the same calf that the linebacker injured in the game against the Buffalo Bills that forced him to miss three games. I am only speculating, but we may have seen the end of Woodley this season unless the Steelers miraculously make the playoffs.
Other than Woodley, Tomlin said that cornerback Ike Taylor (rib) suffered a rib injury in the game. Taylor, however, was able to return to the game.
Tomlin did not mention the injuries suffered by tackles Marcus Gilbert and Kelvin Beachum in the game. Gilbert left with a right ankle injury but managed to return after having it taped up. Beachum, on the other hand, returned after missing several plays.
Tomlin will next meet the media again on Tuesday.
