Steelers Injury Updates: Chase Claypool Being Evaluated, Ben Roethlisberger’s Shoulder ‘Not Worth Mentioning’



PITTSBURGH — Steelers wide receiver Chase Claypool had the lone significant injury suffered by the team during its 29-27 win over the Chicago Bears on Monday.

Claypool, who limped off the field in the fourth quarter before eventually returning, was the only player singled out by head coach Mike Tomlin as having a significant injury after the game.

Tomlin did not specify the nature of Claypool’s injury and said the receiver is still being evaluated.

The only other injury specifically addressed was the health of quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, who had a right (throwing) shoulder injury added to the injury report for him late in the week. Tomlin said it did not impact his performance on Monday.

“Not to my knowledge,” Tomlin said. “Not worth mentioning.”

Roethlisberger declined to answer questions about the nature of his shoulder injury. He threw for 205 yards on 30 attempts. His 6.83 yards per attempt were slightly above his season average entering play Monday. He also attempted to run for a first down on the game’s final offensive drive, diving for the line to gain, but coming up just short.
