Berry did not play in the game, as he is still sidelined with a heel injury. Conner shared the photo on his Instagram account: View this post on Instagram ...

Steelers escape their game against Chiefs without injury

The Steelers are reporting no new injuries after the game with the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 2 If you’re looking for a silver lining in the Pittsburgh Steelers’ loss to the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday, it might be the news that the team appeared to escape the contest without suffering any new injuries. When speaking to reporters after the game, Mike Tomlin’s update about the squad’s health was the only positive aspect of his press conference. “Some bumps and bruises associated with play, but nothing significant from an injury standpoint to mention.” Given that Vance...

Steelers will be fine at RG if David DeCastro’s broken hand keeps him out vs. the Chiefs

No David DeCastro against the Chiefs? No problem. You know a unit has attained an impressive pedigree backed by coaching and player development when you see a Week-2 injury report that includes a Hall of Fame quarterback, a highly-touted cornerback and a right guard (who might be the very best in the business), but the player you’re least worried about is the right guard. The unit I’m talking about is the Steelers’ offensive line, a line that has produced multiple Pro Bowl players and is coached by a Hall of Famer. Mike Munchak is the coach of the Steelers’ offensive line, and...

Le’Veon Bell vs. James Conner: What’s the difference?

The Chiefs weigh in on facing James Conner instead of Le’Veon Bell in their game against the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday. The Pittsburgh Steelers have had injury concerns heading into their game with the Kansas City Chiefs all week, but a starter we are nearly 100 percent sure won’t play that has nothing to do with injuries is running back Le’Veon Bell. Bell has run for more than 100 yards against the Chiefs in each of the last three regular-season games. In the Steelers’ most recent postseason game against the Chiefs, Bell ran 30 times for 170 yards. So the fact the Steelers have...
