In the first series of the Steelers
-Redskins preseason game Friday night, CB Ike Taylor
-- who was one of the Pittsburgh’s biggest free agent (re)signings
-- broke his thumb and left the game for good.
But according to Rapid Reporter
Chuck Finder, the injury isn’t a huge cause for concern. Finder writes that Taylor should be back in time for the Sept. 11 season opener vs. the Ravens
And Finder gets a nice shot in as well. Writes Finder: “For a cover guy known for dropping balls and missing chances at INTs, it shouldn’t alter his game.”
In other Steelers injury news, QB Ben Roethlisberger
had to ice his hand and his hip after suffering minor injuries while playing in Pittsburgh’s first offensive series. Roethlisberger also should be fine.
