Report: Steelers DL Tyson Alualu Suffered Sprained MCL vs. Ravens



Steelers defensive tackle Tyson Alualu suffered a sprained MCL in the first quarter of Pittsburgh’s 28-24 win over the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday, according to a report by Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.

Alualu will require an MRI to confirm the diagnosis. The Steelers announced that he was doubtful to return with a knee injury during the game. MCL injuries usually require athletes to miss at least multiple weeks.

He was replaced at nose tackle by second-year lineman Isaiah Buggs, who made a number of big plays in the second half, including a fourth-down stop of Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson in the game’s final two minutes.
