Jaylen Samuels out a month after knee scope

Running back Jaylen Samuels has taken on a new role in the Steelers offense over the last couple of weeks as the team has used him as a Wildcat quarterback.

Any further plans for Samuels in that role will have to be put on hold. Samuels is on crutches and head coach Mike Tomlin gave an update on his condition during a Tuesday press conference.

Tomlin said that Samuels hurt his knee during last Sunday’s overtime loss to the Ravens and that he had arthroscopic surgery to address the injury. Tomlin said he expects Samuels to miss about a month as a result of the operation.

Samuels has 18 carries for 50 yards and a touchdown, 13 catches for 83 yards and he’s completed 4-of-5 passes for 35 yards and an interception so far this season.

  1. The injury bug has hit a lot of teams and the Steelers are right up there near the top. On a positive note they will have high draft picks next year and I fully expect them to rebound an be competitive again.

  2. Is there a single healthy offensive player on this team?
    Recap: Juju – toe
    Washington – shoulder
    Samuels – knee
    Connor – knee
    Ben – elbow
    Mason – concussion
    Moncrief – stone hands
    Lord this is going to be a long season.

  3. Clownlin has been caught with his pants down. So has Colbert. The latter shouldn’t escape accountability for the ;lack of talent all over the roster.

    Any of the good players, automatically get overrated by the fans.

    Top 5 pick traded away.

    For the best safety they’ve had since Polamalu.

    Even if they land a top 5 pick (doubtful given how many bad teams there are), they wouldn’t have taken a QB with Ben, Rudolph, and Hodges around. They’ve done well enough drafting other offensive skill positions (WR, RB) in rounds 2 onward. Safety was their biggest gap on defense. They got a young, proven asset that’s locked up for a few seasons vs a draft pick that could go on to be a bust.

  5. Once again, a post about an injured player turns into another digital rumble between the obnoxious and the morally bankrupt. Good luck with that, fanboys. Football is a man’s game.

    “Lack of talent all over the roster” == largest number of Pro Bowl selections last year, all of which except AB returned. Good one.

    Also, if you’re gonna troll, do better than “Clownlin.” Cringe-level infantile.

  7. Maybe Trippy could coach the Redskins to a win over the Dolphins this week. Oh wait! Callahan is a savior.
