    PFT reporting that Ike Taylor may have Fibula injury

    After leaving the game in the first series, they taped up his ankle and leg and iced it down with a splint. Then they boot him in a boot. When the camera's showed him he seemed to be in high spirits and was talking with the rest of the DB's. I was hoping it was all just precautionary but seems it could be serious; hopefully not but we'll see.

    Cornerback Ike Taylor, we’re told, has a fibula injury. He’ll have an MRI on Monday.

    Per a source with knowledge of the situation, there is concern that the injury is significant.

    Of course. We get one key player back, we lose on key player.

    Losing Ike is a blow but Lewis, Allen, Brown have been playing lights out.....The Steelers have solid depth at corner....Props to the old man and Carnell Lake for coaching these young corners up.........

    Plus this team has played games without Harrison, Woodley, Troy, Clark, Ben, Brown, Pouncey and they just carry on with that next man up mentality........I'm very hard on Mike Tomlin since I do think X's and O's isn't his strong point as a HC and he is terrible with time management and things of that nature.....But his message of next man up does work for this team.....I go back and forth with Tomlin....I did the samething with Cowher....lol HC's, OC's, DC's never win with me.....lol

    With a broken fibula, Ike would be out approximately 6 weeks

    A source with knowledge of the situation tells Profootballtalk.com that Steelers RCB Ike Taylor is out at least 2-6 weeks with a right fibula injury, and there is "concern that the injury is significant."
    Taylor has missed only three games in his career, and none since 2004. He is clearly the Steelers' top cornerback, so the loss is significant. It will also upgrade Danario Alexander's fantasy matchup in Week 14. Special teamer Curtis Brown is listed as Pittsburgh's backup right corner. Keenan Lewis is the LCB.

    This. I can't believe how our corners have gone from being such a huge liability to such a huge strength in a short amount of time.

    3 of the last 4 at home and both Lewis and Allen playing lights out, we should be ok. I'd hate to see this be any more than a couple weeks but assuming we make it into the playoffs and get Ike back then we can survive for now.

    I think we'll be fine for the rest of the season without Ike, but I really hope he can return for the playoffs and return to the level he was playing at before the injury, he is still our best cover corner and is such a sure tackler, which is huge. Aside from the first few weeks, Ike was having a great season. However,was great to see Cortez Allen and Curtis Brown step up today though, props to them.
