It seems with each passing week the vaunted Steelers defense gets more and more depleated by the injury bug. Of course Bud Dupree and Devin Bush are already gone for the season but last week the Steelers lost corner Joe Haden and linebacker Robert Spillane and both have already been ruled out for Sunday night’s matchup in Buffalo
You’ll never hear anything other than next man up by a Mike Tomlin led team itll be plug and play and each man who is given an expanded roll is expected to produce, the good news is the defense will get corner Steven Nelson back and it appears he will go this week.
But its hard to dismiss how many guys have been in and out of the line up and the effect that has on what was expected to be the best unit this year linebacker TJ Watt earlier Today.
Hes a defensive player of the year candidate. Never hurts to have him fully healthy
