When it comes to Steelers injuries this week, you’re going to have a hard time capturing much attention if your name isn’t Ben Roethlisberger.
The quarterback isn’t the only member of the team to come out of Monday night’s 16-13 win over the Chiefs with an injury, however. Safety Ryan Clark suffered a concussion during the game after getting hit in the head during the final series of regulation.
It’s the second concussion in the last three weeks for Clark. He was also diagnosed with one following the Steelers’ Week Eight win over the Redskins. Clark was cleared in time to play against the Giants the next week and he’s picked up 18 tackles over the last two weeks.
Alan Robinson of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports that coach Mike Tomlin said that Clark “appears to be fine” during his Tuesday press conference. He’ll still need to go through the tests mandated by the league’s concussion protocol, though, and we won’t know until later this week if Clark will be on the field when the Steelers face the Ravens on Sunday night.
