Four Steelers Starters Injured in Loss to Bills

Not only were the Pittsburgh Steelers soundly defeated by the Buffalo Bills 38-3 on Sunday, but the team suffered heavy losses on the injury front as well.

Tight end Pat Freiermuth and cornerback Levi Wallace both suffered concussions in the game.

Freiermuth’s circumstance is especially pressing considering his past history with concussions. He finished the day with a pair of catches for 12 yards.

Wallace had a volatile day against his former team. While he was beaten for a 98-yard touchdown by Gabe Davis on the Bills’ third offensive play of the game, he did intercept Josh Allen later in the fourth quarter.

Wallace’s concussion is just the latest in mounting injuries for the Steelers secondary.

While safety Terrell Edmunds did not suit up for the Steelers at all Sunday, cornerback Cam Sutton was unable to finish the game due to a hamstring injury.

Along the defensive line, Larry Ogunjobi was prevented from completing the game with a back injury.

The Steelers had turned to wide receiver Steve Sims to handle kickoff and punt return duties for the first time this season Sunday, but he suffered an eye injury pregame.

Sims was still able to compete, but Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin shared postgame that the injury caused him “blurred vision,” which complicated his return responsibilities.

Sims exited Pittsburgh’s locker room in Buffalo wearing a patch over his eye.
