"Laundry list" of Steelers injuries includes three concussions

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin met with the media on Tuesday to address the team’s 27-21 win over the Bengals.  Among other things, he reviewed the injuries from Monday night, which he described as “somewhat of a laundry list.”

The fourth-year coach said three players suffered concussions on Monday night:  safety Will Allen, running back Mewelde Moore, and fullback Isaac Redman.

Tomlin said that center Maurkice Pouncey, who returned after suffering a leg injury in the first half of the game, has a tibia bruise.  Guard Chris Kemoeatu has a knee sprain, and he’s expected to be limited in the first part of the week.

Tight end Heath Miller has fluid on his knee, tackle Max Starks suffered “stingers,” and defensive end Brett Keisel continues to deal with a hamstring injury.  Tomlin said that Keisel “was really quite unable to get it going last night.”

    Pats own that stadium and they’re coming off an embarassing loss… hmmm wonder how that’s gonna go

    Good, now my Pats have an outside chance!!
    Although New England has played pretty well there over the years. Should be a good game!

    There have been a ton of injuries for just one half of a football season, let’s hope the second half is just as hard hitting, but with fewer injuries.
    As for Pittsburgh, the last team they can complain to is the Patriots. I mean the Patriots have lost Leigh Bodden (led the team in interceptions last season), Ty Warren, Kevin Faulk–all for the season, not to mention the personnel losses of Moss and Maroney (okay so maybe that’s not really a loss), plus Fred Taylor has yet to play and Patrick Chung has missed the last two games. Oh yeah, their kicker is out for two weeks too. Given all that, I would say the Steelers are a heck of a lot healthier than the Patriots. Still, expect New England to go into Ketchup Stadium and pull this one out. Go Browns–Beat the Jets!!!

    Steelers Pass D is HIGHLY overrated. Their Run D is legit, no doubt. Good for the Pats, since they run only to give the pass credibility. Pats roll em.

    pats have won zero super bowls without knowing the opponents defense signals.

    They haven’t “owned” anything for a while…
    My guess it’s gonna go pretty much like your Browns game did.

    The NFL needs to address helmet standards. My Cowboys helmets arent big enough for their heads. D’oh !

  8. protectthishouse54 says: Nov 9, 2010 1:28 PM

    Heath Miller has fluid on his knee? What the hell does that mean?

    Wrong, they have owned the AFC East for essentially the last ten years (except for 11-5 in 2008) and in 2002, so yes, they have owned that and they have also owned the NFL’s longest home regular season winning stretch with Brady at the helm. Do your research before commenting, but then again, stupid is as stupid does or so the saying goes.

    Hopefully when Goodell moves the season to 18 games everyone will be hurt so the practice squad players can get some “Big Game” experience.

  11. harrisonconspiracy says: Nov 9, 2010 1:38 PM

    Pat’s own that stadium in the playoffs while using video footage captured in the regulars season meetings, where they get their hats handed to them. . . . . . . .

  12. petro says: Nov 9, 2010 1:51 PM

    Notice how the talk of an 18 game season has died down? They’re crazy to even think of that. If anything, have 2 bye weeks for each team and expand the season that way.

  13. ReverendTom says: Nov 9, 2010 2:03 PM

    Fluid on his knee? Why doesnt he just wipe it off?

  14. stinkyJoe says: Nov 9, 2010 2:10 PM

    I’ll have what Forrest is smoking ( or are you just aptly named ). “Wrong, they have owned the AFC East for essentially the last ten years (except for 11-5 in 2008) and in 2002,”
    In Forrest’s world the patriots have “Owned” the AFC championship for all but 2 of the last 10 yrs. In forrests world they’ve been to the superbowl 8 times since 2000.

  15. oif3gunner says: Nov 9, 2010 2:13 PM

    I like the 2 bye week idea…good call

  16. TheCityThatReeds says: Nov 9, 2010 2:15 PM

    I took the biggest Pittsburgh today in the bathroom, had to wipe my Steelers like 10 times.

  17. steelersmichele says: Nov 9, 2010 2:16 PM

    Did those concussions come from non helmet-to-helmet hits? If they did, blows Goodell’s theory right out the window.

    ————
    Yet they have played 3 regular season games since the last playoff game and the Patriots killed the Steelers in 2 of them. The one the Steelers won was a Patriot team without Brady.
    And if you really believe they won those playoff games because of video you are just as dumb as Joey Porter!
    Considering they won the first AFC championship game with a punt ret and a blocked FG. Last time I checked defensive signals has nothing to do with special teams.
    Funny how the Steelers fans (not all) that bitch about that never bring that fact up.

  19. Art Van Delay's brother says: Nov 9, 2010 2:22 PM

    The Patriots own a lot of things. Let’s see Spygate is forever tatooed on their Super Bowl wins. They own the biggest choke in Super Bowl history after flushing down a perfect season to Eli Manning and Boss.

  20. dabarber says: Nov 9, 2010 2:24 PM

    That is what happens when your coaches teach you to lead with your helmet.

  21. Art Van Delay's brother says: Nov 9, 2010 2:25 PM

    Special order for the Atlanta Falcons…spit shields for Thursday’s game. Stay classy Ravens!

  22. steelkiller says: Nov 9, 2010 2:28 PM

    Patriots have no defense. They are on pace to give up way more than 375 Pts. And NO TEAM has ever won a Super Bowl giving up that many points, and with no run defense. Steelers will run, and pass all over them. Even if the Pats short passing game can get them some yards, they still won’t score more than 17 to 20 points. And New England’s defense couldn’t hold a High School team to 17 points, much less the steelers. Pittsburgh goes to 7-2 :-)

  23. stinkyJoe says: Nov 9, 2010 2:30 PM

    Its more like the Steelers are going to whip out their Pittsburgh and emasculate Tom Brady and co. See Ned Beatty in Deliverance. Then they’re throw their limp bodies over TheCityThatReeds.

  24. Cornell Steelers says: Nov 9, 2010 2:31 PM

    Well, at least none of the injuries are serious. And it’s hard to say the Pats have owned Heinz, seeing as how they haven’t played there since 2005.

  25. stinkyJoe says: Nov 9, 2010 2:36 PM

    Uh Oh – harrisConsirac y is smoking what forrest is. I remembered this ( thought i might be high but apparently am not ). Just looked and uh oh – 10/31 2004 Duce Staley runs for 221 yards in pgh against the Pats. Tom Brady throws 2 picks. Conspiracy says I was gonna get the facts but ” then i got high, then I got high”

  26. Katmanduu says: Nov 9, 2010 2:54 PM

    The Pats are walking into a buzzsaw on Sunday night. Most of these guys will be fine and ready to play. The Pats, with their soft defense, are in for a rude awakening. More so, Brady is going to get de-cleated.
    Steelers roll!

  27. stinkyJoe says: Nov 9, 2010 2:55 PM

    I’m from pgh and can live with the Steelers being the second best franchise in the last 15 yrs to New England * ( asterisk for SpyGate ). Going back further, the Steelers are 6 and 1 in the Superbowl ( NE is 3 and 5 ). Except for a stint in the mid early to mid 80′s Steelers fans haven’t had to sit through to many meaningless ( over by game 8 ) seasons in the last 40 years.

  28. stinkyJoe says: Nov 9, 2010 2:58 PM

    point to harrisCon ( my response was outside of you – since last playoff scope ). * for spygate.

    No run defense? Then how is it they held Adrian Peterson under 100 yrds, Ray Rice under 100 yrds, LT under 100 yrds, Ronnie Brown under 100 yrds?
    They have allowed 1 RB to go over 100 yards in 8 games, and it was last week.

  30. stinkyJoe says: Nov 9, 2010 3:27 PM

    steeerKiller – With 2 DE’s out and don’t know who on O line ( desimated last wk ) I wouldn’t put a ton on the game but……..

    Florio 2 more weeks till the raiders beat up on your steelers…..Again

    If Bruce Arians would just open up the offense and stop doing his best “Jeff Fisher” impression …we wouldnt have to worry about the defense. We’d just have to worry about people crying about running up the score. :)

    I thought Polomalu had a concussion too. Seems he looks a bit like a teenage girl from behind, and Roethlisberger apparently followed him into the rest room at half time and Polomalu was struck in the head with Ben’s Patriot Missile.

    Good grief, us bringing up that Spygate nonsense is as silly as dimwits ranting about steroids in the 70s. Everyone used steroids then and everyone filmed–legally. Then the league changed the rule, but Belichick didn’t stop. It was more about his arrogance than anything. They had their best season after the tapes were confiscated.
    This is one of the top four teams in the NFL and was just outplayed by the Browns on the road. They’ll be at home, looking for redemption, on a national stage. And they always step up for the Steelers. We should have beaten New Orleans, but … Sanders blew up a sure TD pass to Ward … Heath fumbled heading into the red zone, leading to a score the other way … our ever-reliable kicker predictably missed a field goal … and we failed to challenge what apparently would have been a TD. So we’d be fools to take New England lightly.

    “Steelers Pass D is HIGHLY overrated.”
    I didn’t know they were highly rated to begin with. I’m pretty sure everybody realizes Polamalu is the only good player in that group. Ike Taylor may be slightly above average.
    I agree with everything Deb said. The Spygate excuse is just Patriots haters version of the refs excuse for Steelers haters. Excuses, excuses. The Steelers lost those AFC Championships. Outplayed, outcoached. Simple. They were also 6 and 9 years ago. Let’s move on.
    And if you think the Pats are gonna roll over for the Steelers just because the Browns trounced them, maybe you should check out what happened in New Orleans on Halloween.
    Anyhoo, I think this could be a really good game. Two good quarterbacks playing against two bad secondaries. The Steelers throwbacks will be on show. Heinz will be rocking. The Steelers D is slightly better than the Patriots. I think I’m looking for a bit of a shootout here, and hopefully those advantages will cause Brady to make one more mistake than Ben does and the Steelers eek one out. This is it, Steelers fans. 6-2 for the past four years. Will this be like 2007 and 2009 or more like 2008? We’ll find out a lot about this team Sunday. Game of the year for them without a doubt. GO STEELERS.

    18 Game season anyone? I don’t think Pats, Steelers or Colts fans would have the appetite for that, at this stage.

    And any NE fan with an ounce of common sense(like myself) would not take Pitt lightly either.
    It will be a war as usual….and it will be great!
