No Big Ben, Bell, Shazier, Hayward, etc.

The Steelers are really banged up — really banged up.

The biggest injury that comes to mind is QB Ben Roethlisberger. Big Ben suffered a knee injury (MCL) in the Steelers win against the Oakland Raiders this past Sunday. This is a big blow to the Steelers, but what’s worse is that it is not the only injury they’ve suffered lately.

RB Le’Veon Bell is out for the entire season after suffering a serious knee injury (MCL) a couple of weeks ago.

While Bell and Roethlisberger are both for sure out for Sunday’s game against Cleveland, there are other players who are questionable to play Sunday as well. Both LB Ryan Shazier and DL Cameron Heyward missed practice on Thursday due to injuries.

There’s also WR Darrius Heyward-Bey who was limited in practice with a hamstring injury.

As you can see these are not any no name players that the Steelers are missing. The Steelers have lost people in a bunch of key positions and they’ll definitely feel the effects of that on Sunday.
