Stephon Tuitt could play this week

The news about Steelers defensive end Stephon Tuitt‘s arm injury continues to trend in the right direction.

In the immediate aftermath of their victory over the Browns, there was a report that the team feared Tuitt could miss the rest of the season with a torn biceps. The news got better on Monday when further tests showed Tuitt’s injury was not that severe, although the word was that Tuitt was considered week-to-week to return to action.

That suggested it would be a bit before Tuitt will be ready to return, but that may not be the case. Coach Mike Tomlin said on Tuesday that Tuitt could play against the Vikings this weekend.

“We’ll leave the light on,” Tomlin said, via Aditi Kinkhabwala of NFL Media.

The Steelers will issue a practice report on Wednesday and we’ll see if Tuitt is able to do any on-field work to kick off the week. If he does, the chances that he’ll play will likely increase. Tyson Alualu would take his spot in the lineup if things work out the other way.

  1. We Packers fans hope Tuitt can play and help beat those upstart Vikings. Because they looked good and we’re not sure we can beat them. And us Packers fans don’t like that. We need somebody else to do our dirty work.

    Tomlin is blowing smoke up your dress. Tuitt won’t play…..too risky. They will need him too much down the stretch.

    I like to laugh at both Pitt and Baltimore being in denial about how severe injuries are. This kind of arrogance always backfires.

    Of course, if you had good players elsewhere on the defense, losing Tuitt and further injuring the torn bicep, this wouldn’t be such a potential drastic injury for that mediocre D that almost lost to lowly Cleveland.

    Never said it wasn’t. See you in January, if you even make it.

    Speaking of mediocre D, how about that game last Thursday night? 42 points by the Chiefs? Embarrassing.

    You mean the #1 SB rated D from last year that never starts off very well?

    Keep kissing your Sept trophy.

    Pats D will yet again be better than Pitt’s when the dust settles. Always is.

    When you play in the cupcake division it’s no wonder. After all no one but the Pat’s have won a Super Bowl in the last 40+ years. Ty the dynasty is going to end and you will disappear in to obscurity a bitter and broken troll…..thousands on PFT will rejoice…might even be a parade and a tv spin off…..nah….I ll just yawn burp pass gas and chuckle.
