Steelers linebacker Bud Dupree left the staff’s recreation towards the Baltimore Ravens on Wednesday within the fourth quarter.
Dupree suffered a knee harm on a 3rd down whereas pursuing Ravens quarterback Hint McSorley. The staff introduced that he’s questionable to return.
He first was examined on the Steelers bench, after which limped down the tunnel into the Pittsburgh locker room for additional analysis.

He’ll possible get replaced by rookie Alex Highsmith.
When requested what he attributed his staff‘s myriad miscues on Wednesday to, Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin was brief, easy and emphatic along with his reply.
“Us, sucking,” the veteran coach said.
Within the aftermath of a ridiculously lengthy Week 12, Tomlin’s Steelers collected an necessary 19-14 win over AFC North-archrival Baltimore. Necessary, however hardly spectacular. The Steelers emerged victorious and nonetheless undefeated, 11-Zero for the primary time within the adorned franchise’s chronicle. However they hardly appeared like such a staff.
“It was actually junior varsity, to be fairly sincere with you,” Tomlin stated. “It was in all three phases. We could not run the ball successfully after we wanted to. We dropped too many important passes, very catchable, makeable passes. We did not make important performs within the particular groups recreation. Our kickoff protection unit wasn’t ok. We turned the ball over. We gave up huge performs in essential moments on protection. Cannot have it.”
Although the Ravens have been ravaged by lacking expertise as a result of coronavirus, the Steelers offense produced a season-low in factors scored. Ben Roethlisberger and the offense mustered only one landing and 334 yards. Dropped passes have been an enormous downside. That they had a pair of turnovers. And simply by no means received going.
For a lot of the competition, the Steelers’ impactful protection dominated the Ravens’ short-handed offense, however a late Hint McSorley 70-yard landing cross instantly sprung Baltimore again into the sport.
“Unacceptable,” stated Tomlin of the play and far else.
