Huge injury updates in the Steelers’ camp as six of their players have been ruled out of this Sunday’s game against the Buccaneers.
The Pittsburgh Steelers are set to host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at the Acrisure Stadium in week 6 of the 2022 regular NFL season. The Steelers started in terrible fashion as they are currently 1-4. Their only win came in the first week against the Bengals. Their next opponent, the Bucs on the other hand is having a decent season so far with a decent run with 3 wins and 2 losses.
If losing 4 games in a row was not enough, the six-times super bowl champion suffered yet another blow in the form of injuries. A total of six players are out for the next game on Sunday that includes Cam Sutton, Ahkello Witherspoon, Levi Wallace, Minkah Fitzpatrick, Pat Freiermuth, and DeMarvin. With so many defensive players ruled out of the game, the Steelers are all but certain to have an extremely tough time against the Tom Brady-led team.
There’s no mincing words: the news isn’t good on the Steelers injury report.

Pittsburgh is likely to start their rookie quarterback, Kenny Pickett once again. He will have to take the lead of the team’s offense when the defense is in such a poor state due to the injuries. However, considering Brady’s record against rookie quarterbacks, it seems probable that the Steelers are heading for the fifth straight loss.
