The Pittsburgh Steelers have struggled this season.  They are 2-3 on the season and in third place in the AFC North.  The season isn't over by any stretch, but they will have to get healthy if they will compete throughout the rest of the year.  Pittsburgh has battled so many injuries, it's no real surprise they've faltered out of the gate this seasons.  Here are your Steelers injury updates: Dan Hamzus of NFL.com says Rashard Mendenhall's achilles injury is not serious.  Mendenhall injured the achilles during the Steelers loss to the Tennessee Totans on Thursday.  He said the achilles tightened up on him during the game, and the team says his status will be determined based on how he responds over the next week.  Mendenhall missed the team's first three games while recovering from knee surgery.  Isaac Redman looked to have suffered a knee injury during the Steelers loss on Thursday.  However, Alan Robinson of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review says the injury was actually an ankle injury.  Redman's injury does not seem serious and he is expected to be available for Week 7.   Maurkice Pouncey had to exit Thursday's game with a knee injury.  The injury was just anohter in a long line of Steelers injuries this season, but luckily it seems not to be too serious.  According to Mike Florio of NBC Sports, Pouncey is not likely to miss much time and could be ready to go for Pittsburgh's next game.   The Steelers are trying to get healthy, but if they continue to suffer as many injuries as they have each game this season, they will have little chance to get back into things in the AFC North.
