The Pittsburgh Steelers were able to defeat the Los Angeles Rams 17-12 in Week 10 action at Heinz Field, with the win being their fourth straight in the 2019 season. It seems unstable, but the once-unbeaten Steelers are now sitting at 5-4 entering a critical three-game stretch of divisional games.
Pittsburgh suffered injuries, especially on offense, and the team was lucky to leave Week 10 of the game unscathed. The only injuries listed from head coach Mike Tomlin after the game were as follows:
Ryan Switzer (back)
Ola Adeniyi (hip)
Tomlin said both were evaluated players, and they'll know a lot in the coming days. The kick for any player who sustained an injury for a short week, the chances of them playing were slim.
The Steelers head on the road for back-to-back weeks starting with the Thursday Night Football Night showdown with the Browns in Cleveland. Depending on the severity of the switchzer injuries and Adeniyi, there are other injuries that keep an eye out as the team quickly turns the page on the Browns.
James Conner has missed the last two games with a shoulder injury, and having him back would be a huge blow for an anemic running attack. Another player to help run the running back is fullback Roosevelt Nix, who missed the Rams game after recovering from a knee injury that put him out most of the regular season.
Guard Ramon Foster is still working through The NFL's concussion protocol, and his return to the lineup will be equivalent to all five starting linemen healthy and active for the big game against the Browns .
JuJu Smith-Schuster, listed in the injury report as having a foot injury, made it through Sunday's game without any wasting, per Tomlin.
In Thursday night's upcoming game, Mike Tomlin will be in the media tomorrow, Monday, and will likely have an update on these injuries as the team prepares for only their third divisional game in the 2019 regular season. period.
