Steelers receiver Chase Claypool was injured on the next-to-last play of Tuesday’s practice, via multiple reports.

He remained on the ground after trying to catch a long pass.

Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and tight end Eric Ebron helped Claypool off the field. The second-year player headed directly to the training room, putting no weight on his leg.

Coach Mike Tomlin said the medical staff is evaluating the injury, offering no immediate update.

Claypool, 23, caught 62 passes for 873 yards and nine touchdowns as a rookie after the Steelers made him a second-round choice.

  1. Although the local press says that James Washington never requested a trade, this is why you don’t trade him if he did. I have been watching the Steelers for nearly fifty years. There have been several seasons where injuries turned a loaded wide receiver group into a liability. You need all the quality players that you can afford.
