The top priority for every NFL team in the preseason is to emerge from it with all key players healthy.
For Pittsburgh, there’s already a problem.
Cornerback Ike Taylor suffered a broken thumb on Friday night against the Redskins. Owner Art Rooney, II, disclosed the injury during halftime of the KDKA-TV coverage of the game.
Also, quarterback Ben Roethlisberger suffered hand and hip injuries that are regarded as minor.
Safety Ryan Clark completed the Trifecta with an injury that also is regarded as minor.
Whether and to what extent Taylor misses any time remains to be seen.
