Tomlin's injury update: Post Miami



"We released a statement yesterday regarding Ben. He had an outpatient procedure to repair his meniscus on Monday. He can be characterized as out this week. I'm not going to get into speculating on how long it's going to be. When he's healthy, he'll be back to us. So we'll deal with that on a week-to-week basis.

"Cam Heyward will continue to be out with his hamstring (as will) Cody Wallace, with his knee. We have a number of guys whose availability will be based on their practice participation. That list includes Markus Wheaton (shoulder), Ryan Shazier (knee), Robert Golden (groin), Marcus Gilbert (ankle). A couple of additional injuries – developing ones from the game the other day – Rob Golden (foot), Mike Mitchell (knee). Mitchell came out for a portion of the game and was able to go back in. Le'Veon Bell has had some inflammation in his knee, and we'll keep a close eye on that. As always we'll deal with a myriad of these things, we'll keep an eye on these guys. But their practice participation, and the quality of that participation, will be our guide as we formulate a division of labor relative to this game."
