PITTSBURGH — Pittsburgh Steelers safety Tre Norwood was helped off the field, favoring his left leg, after the Pittsburgh Steelers gave up a deep pass to Las Vegas Raiders tight end Darren Waller shortly before halftime Saturday night.
Following the 34-yard pass by Derek Carr on third-and-10, Norwood sat on the ground, grabbing at his thigh. Steelers trainers talked to him for a moment before he was helped up and brought down the tunnel.
A second-year defensive back out of Oklahoma, Norwood had made 17 stops entering the clash with Las Vegas. He has one career interception.
With time winding down on what was left of the first half, the Steelers’ defense stiffened, defending a third-down pass intended again for Waller, before allowing a 40-yard field goal by Daniel Carlson. That capped a nine-play, 54-yard march.
Las Vegas held a touchdown lead at the midway intermission. Tre Norwood is questionable to return to the game. Behind him, the Steelers have Elijah Riley, who they just added to the roster on Saturday. Minkah Fitzpatrick and Damontae Kazee will continue to start, as Terrell Edmunds is not dressed with a hamstring injury. Norwood had seen an increase in snaps due to injuries and was the team’s third safety in their three-safety package.
