Steelers DT Cam Heyward May Have Suffered Setback

The Pittsburgh Steelers defensive tackle has taken steps backward in his return from a groin injury.

PITTSBURGH — The Pittsburgh Steelers shared some bad news by way of their daily practice report this week, with just a couple of days to go before they return to the field against the Green Bay Packers.

Among the four Steelers not to participate in the second-to-last practice of the week was veteran defensive lineman Cam Heyward. After being limited the day before, Heyward sat out all of Day 2’s practice.

Heyward is fresh off a groin injury that he suffered in the Steelers’ Week 1 loss to the San Francisco 49ers at home.

He first participated in practice before the Steelers’ Week 8 matchup with the Jacksonville Jaguars. The following week, he made his game debut as the team defeated the Tennessee Titans, 20-14, at Acrisure Stadium.

Heyward was in on six total tackles, including one for a loss against the Titans.

The injury specifies that Heyward is still dealing with an injury to his groin. It is possible that the team is holding him out as a precaution or that he had a setback during practice this week. Either way, it’s something to monitor through the end of this week and up until kickoff against the Packers.
