Steelers LS Greg Warren Expected To Be Out Four Weeks With Meniscus Tear
The Pittsburgh Steelers will wrap up their 2014 training camp Thursday with an evening scrimmage practice against the Buffalo Bills and head coach Mike Tomlin has now held his final press conference at Latrobe.
On the injury front, Tomlin said that long snapper Greg Warren (knee) suffered a meniscus tear during Wednesday’s scrimmage against the Bills and will likely be out roughly four weeks as he will need to get that fixed. For now, the team will likely use backup long snapper Bryce Davis for the game against the Bills but Tomlin did not rule out the possibility of another long snapper being signed.
As far as other players that are inured, Tomlin said linebacker Jarvis Jones (groin), linebacker Ryan Shazier (knee) and linebacker Vince Williams (concussion) all have a possibility of playing Saturday night against the Bills. The Steelers head coach also finally termed Shazier’s injury as something other than a “boo-boo” as he called it a knee bruise.
Tomlin said he will wait until the eleventh hour before ruling out any other players from playing against the Bills.
