Steelers linebacker Suffers Season Ending Injury

Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Cole Holcomb suffered a knee injury in the win against the Tennessee Titans on Thursday night. He could be out till the end of the season. 

Holcomb sustained the injury when he dropped into coverage against Titans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins. The linebacker made a catch, and then safety Keanu Neal dropped down to make the tackle with Holcomb in pursuit.

Neal hit Holcomb’s knee on the follow-through causing him to go down clutching his knee in pain. 

He was carried off the field in the first half after he was medically attended to on the field, and was discharged from an area hospital Friday morning after an overnight, precautionary stay. 

“It was tough, but I just know he was in a ton of pain when the injury happened. I was right there next to him,” cornerback Patrick Peterson said Thursday night. “But I just wish and pray, Cole, nothing but the best and hopefully a speedy recovery.”

Color who is a key Steeler starter has played 77% of defensive snaps in eight games this season.

With Holcomb out, Elandon Roberts and Kwon Alexander played season-high snaps, and Alexander sealed the win with a game-saving interception in the final minute.

“We’re praying for Cole,” Alexander said after the game. “We going to play for him. We’re going to play for him for the rest of the season.”

Cole has had two forced fumbles, one fumble recovery, four tackles for loss, and two quarterback hits, along with 54 tackles this season.
