DENVER A bad night Sunday got worse for cornerback Keenan Lewis as the Steelers filed into the visiting locker room at Invesco Field following a 34-17 loss to the Broncos.

Lewis, who got benched in the second quarter after picking up two personal foul penalties, punched a sign that was encased in glass. The glass shattered and many of the players had to walk by a guard telling them to watch their step and Tomlin making it very clear why there was broken glass outside of the Steelers' locker room.

"That's what you call young and dumb right there," Tomlin said to the players that passed him. "Watch your step. No. (23) is playing bad and doing stupid stuff as well."

Lewis started at the cornerback spot opposite Ike Taylor in place of Bryant McFadden, who didn't play because of an arm injury.

Lewis, who appeared to be pushing McFadden for the starting job gave up an 18-yard catch to Eddie Royal on the second play of the game and then tackled the Broncos wide receiver out of bounds.

"The first (unnecessary roughness penalty) I didn't know he was out of bounds," Lewis said. "The second one, that was my fault."

Lewis got flagged in the second quarter for unnecessary roughness after tackling Bronces wide receiver Brandon Lloyd.

Gay promptly replaced Lewis at cornerback, and after the game Tomlin said of the latter, "He stunk it up."

The 6-foot, 208-pounder Lewis didn't do anything to help himself after the game as Tomlin was livid when he saw the broken glass outside of the Steelers' locker room.

Lewis said he meant to punch the wall, not the sign.

"He had a tough night," said Steelers wide receiver Mike Wallace, who is Lewis' best friend. "That's why I told him we have next week. Shake it off, bounce back. We all make mistakes. Hopefully he can get back to the Keenan I know."

wow u suck it up on the field getting beat and playing the wrong coverage on that third down play.. then you get 2 PF penalties and you punch a sign covered in glass.

might go from nearly starting to cut from all this.

I don't what got into him but he did what I love to compare the mother of all screwups is like dropping the church collection. It gets no worse than that. Hopefully, he'll bounce back because he's a decent, physical corner and would fit well in our secondary IMO.

Yeah, glad Tomlin chewed his ass out for it too...and made it a point to make sure everyone knew how he was embarrassing himself.

You aren't going to make the cut acting like a dipshit.

Love to see Tom-Tom chew guys out for embarassing our Steeler family especially when it's unnecessary. Better hope he didn't hurt his chances on making the team with his overall play.

I don't think he will get cut, but he will have work really hard to get out of the dog house.

Hilarious. He took responsibility for the second personal foul but I guess the first one is not his fault because "I didn't know he was out of bounds". By that rationale, the broken glass wasn't his fault either because he was trying to hit the wall. Nice miss jackass.

Bwaaaaaaaaahahahaha!! Don't you love the post interviews when players do dumb stuff on the field and it carries over off the field as well. Glad I wasn't drinking when I read his comments or it would've blew my high.

He definitly needs to mature.
