LATROBE, PA – Pittsburgh Steelers defensive deal with Cam Heyward When he was hauled off the practice field, gave all of Steeler Nation a cumulative heart attack on Thursday. Heyward suffered an ankle injury and entrusted to it iced.
But luckily it was mainly an incorrect alarm. Those in participation kept in mind that Heyward went back to the practice field before it concluded and while he didn’t participate, had no kind of wrap or brace on his ankle.
This is another untimely blow to a Steelers protective line that was just starting to end up being whole once again. Veteran deal with Tyson Alualu had simply gone back to full participation at practice today however Montravius Adams suffered an ankle injury on Monday and Isiahh Loudermilk left practice today with a rib injury.
The Steelers are preparing to play their second preseason video game of the year this Saturday against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Losing Heyward would have been a big blow to the defense so it is great news that his injury isn’t considered severe. Heyward spoke with the media after and said he was a little anxious when it happened but it’s all good.
