Heyward’s injury was one of many unfortunate events in Pittsburgh’s season-opening loss to San Francisco last Sunday. He played just 14 snaps before leaving with the injury and only returned briefly before leaving again, forcing the Steelers to put together a replacement plan that included Isaiahh Loudermilk and Keeanu Benton. With Heyward out, 49ers running back Christian McCaffrey took advantage, finishing the day with 152 yards and a touchdown on 22 carries, while quarterback Brock Purdy found things easier in a 220-yard, two-touchdown outing. .

Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin admitted his team “got kicked in the teeth today in a lot of ways” following their 30-7 loss. The absence of Heyward (a six-time Pro Bowler, three-time All-Pro and grizzled veteran of Pittsburgh’s defense with 78.5 career sacks) will hurt much more than Sunday’s loss.

Next up, Pittsburgh will face the division rival Cleveland Browns on Monday night.
