On Sunday the Steelers loss to Tennessee but season ending injuries to Stephens-Howling, center Maurkice Pouncey and linebacker Larry Foote will mean more going forward.
The loss of Stephens-Howling will also hurt the Steelers on special teams. With his loss the Steelers will ride Issac Redman and Felix Jones in the backfield.
