Steelers Injury Updates: Witherspoon Out, 4 D Starters Limited

The Pittsburgh Steelers defense will be significantly limited by injury in the week leading up to its Week 5 battle against Josh Allen and the Buffalo Bills.

Cornerback Ahkello Witherspoon will miss his second consecutive game, head coach Mike Tomlin said on Tuesday. Witherspoon was injured in the second half of the Steelers’ Week 3 loss to the Cleveland Browns and did not play last week against the New York Jets.

In that game, things got significantly more complicated for the Steelers defense, as Terrell Edmunds left the game for the concussion protocol and three others starters played through significant injuries. Edmunds remains in the protocol and his status is unknown for Sunday’s trip to Buffalo.
