PITTSBURGH — Steelers inside linebacker Devin Bush Jr. left his team’s game against the Denver Broncos on Sunday with a groin injury, head coach Mike Tomlin announced, the latests in a series of soft tissue injuries that have been plaguing the Steelers so far this season.
Bush left the game in the second half and did not return. He was originally listed as questionable to return before being downgraded to out. He was replaced by Robert Spillane.
Bush had already missed one game this season to a groin injury after missing the second half of the 2020 season with an ACL injury that required surgery.
The Steelers have had a number of groin and other soft tissue injuries so far this season, with Joe Haden, Alex Highsmith, Cameron Sutton, James Washington and T.J. Watt all missing time.
Bush had a sack and another quarterback hit before leaving the game, his second straight game with a sack.
“He seems to have an invisible suit that I don’t have,” outside linebacker T.J. Watt said. “I’ve got to find out what he’s doing to get to the quarterback. Just being able to capitalize on those moments is very difficult in this league and he’s been able to do that.”
