Broken hand not expected to keep Lawrence Timmons out

Steelers linebacker Lawrence Timmons was busy last Sunday as the league credited him with 17 tackles to help the Steelers to a 19-16 win over the Ravens.

Timmons wasn’t doing it at full strength, however. Coach Mike Tomlin revealed on Tuesday that Timmons broke his left hand at some point in the second half of the game, but he was able to finish the contest on the field despite the injury. Timmons is in a cast, but he’s expected to be in the lineup for Week Eight.

“Lawrence Timmons broke his left hand. That’s been casted. He is ready to go,” Tomlin said, via the team’s website. “That happened late in the third or early in the fourth quarter of the game. He was able to finish. We fixed it. He has full mobility in all of his fingers, but it has been secured with a cast.”

Playing with a cast is less than ideal, but it’s a pretty frequent occurrence for players who don’t make their living holding onto or catching the ball. As long as any pain is tolerated or managed, Timmons should be as effective as usual against the Raiders this Sunday.

    So why is Clay Mathews out?

    Toradol before the game and he’s good to go. Actually I read an ESPN article saying they estimate around 50% of players get that injection before every game. Crazy stuff. I’ve had that injection myself once, and it is very unpleasant. It’s an Intramuscular injection and it’s THICK. It hurt like a mother!

    Now it makes sense why the Ravens were able to score that last touchdown, beast was hobbled. Edit the record books, 19-9. Actually, change it to 23-9, Sanders tightroped, we all saw it.

    Men play football with a broken hand. Little blonde haired girls named Clay sit out for a month.

    Make that 27-9, Moye dropped a TD pass from Ben that hit his palms.

    Ha! you’re just trying to back up your “Ravens got smoked” comment on the Pitta thread. Why stop at 23-9? Make it 30-9 as I’m sure the wildcat was designed to score. Might as well take the Ravens field goals off too, we know the refs were told by Goodell to help the Ravens out at all time. In the end it was blow out AND a shut out!

    Actually lf4l, we’ll stop at 27-9. I forgot about that Moye drop, thanks sixlombardis. Now that’s more like it, getting smoked, like I said.

    @bluffing, I’ve had Toradol too. I swear the stuff was as thick as paint. And you’re right, it hurt like a mother!!!

    Timmons had a monster game. This will be revenge for the Steelers after the last loss to Oakland. Jones should be back in the saddle also.
