Steelers’ Trey Edmunds, Rosie Nix Both Injured vs. Colts

Published

on

PITTSBURGH — The Steelers came into their Week 9 meeting with the Indianapolis Colts banged up in a significant way in their offensive backfield, and that got worse instead of better throughout the course of their 26-24 win on Sunday.

Fullback Roosevelt Nix re-aggravated his the knee injury that caused him to miss five games earlier this season. Nix was questionable with the knee injury coming into the game after being limited in practice on Friday.

The Steelers also saw running back Trey Edmunds suffer a rib injury that is still being evaluated, according to head coach Mike Tomlin.

Edmunds was the team’s leading rusher with James Conner (AC joint) and Benny Snell, Jr. (knee) inactive. Tomlin was complimentary of the way the Steelers’ fourth-string running back played.

He had 12 carries for 73 yards while starter Jaylen Samuels worked in more of an all-purpose role, catching 13 passes for 73 yards while contributing just 10 yards on eight carries on the ground.

“Trey is a one-cut, downhill type of guy,” Tomlin said. “Obviously, Jaylen [Samuels] is good out of the backfield. It was a nice division of labor. Simply, Edmunds replaced Conner in a lot of ways in terms of the things that they specialized in doing.”

Tomlin remained hopeful that Edmunds and Nix will be available for next Sunday’s game against the Los Angeles Rams.


“Hopefully, it won’t prevent them from moving forward next week here,” he said. “I know that we are going to need everybody, because we just need to prepare ourselves to be in battles like that.”

Wide receiver Ryan Switzer (ribs) also sustained an injury in the game.

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster is bringing some joy to fans during tough times.

Smith-Schuster spent his Tuesday afternoon delivering pizzas for PizzaHut, and even took the time to snap a pic with a young fan, courtesy of JimStamm22 on Twitter.

A fan favorite, Smith-Schuster is entering his fourth season in Pittsburgh.

After an explosive sophomore season in 2018, Smith-Schuster battled injuries and inconsistent quarterback play that combined for a lackluster 2019.

With the return of franchise quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, Smith-Schuster appears primed to deliver more than pizzas this upcoming season.
