La’Rod Stephens-Howling has torn his ACL.

The loss of Stephens-Howling, 26, will further weaken the Steelers running back spot which was already missing Le’Veon Bell.


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.

To make matters worse for the Steelers, kicker Shaun Suisham sustained a hamstring injury and could miss some time himself.
