The Pittsburgh Steelers were dealt a tough hand, as it pertains to injuries, during their Week 6 blowout win over the Cleveland Browns. Second year inside linebacker Devin Bush was lost for the season after tearing his ACL, but the Steelers’ Week 7 opponents, the Tennessee Titans, are dealing with a big name player getting injured as well.
Per Steve Layman and Jay Glazer, it is being reported left tackle Taylor Lewan could be out for the season with a potentially torn ACL.

That’s some dark news on an otherwise great day for a now 5-0 team. @NC5

I can’t wait to watch my guys crush it, I’m going to be the biggest titans fan each and every Sunday. We are doing something special here and this small set back doesn’t change a thing!

The Steelers could use all the help they can get as they approach the biggest game of date on their 2020 regular season schedule. The 5-0 Titans vs. the 5-0 Steelers in Nashville in Week 7 has huge story lines all through it.
Derrick Henry vs. the NFL’s best rushing defense.
Ben Roethlisberger and company vs. the stout Titans’ defense.
The loss of Bush is a big one for the Pittsburgh defense, but the loss of Lewan is a huge blow to a red-hot Titans offense. It will be the battle of the undefeated teams this Sunday, and both teams will be dealing with big name injuries heading into the contest.
Stay tuned to BTSC for the latest news and notes surrounding the injury to Lewan, as well as Steelers injuries, as both teams prepare for Week 7.
