When the Pittsburgh Steelers released their list of inactives on Sunday, an unexpected name was on it: Linebacker Robert Spillane.
It was initially planned for Spillane to play versus the Buffalo Bills, but a shin injury during pregame warmups kept him out of the matchup.
In his weekly press conference on Tuesday, Mike Tomlin provided an update on Spillane, noting that he’ll continue to be evaluated. “He may be limited somewhat at the early portions of the week, but we expect him to be available to us, barring any setbacks from a shin standpoint, and so that’s a good thing.”
Aside from Spillane, only the usual “bumps and bruises associated with play” came out of the Steelers’ victory over the Bills.
