2 Steelers Players Reportedly Suffer Season-Ending Injuries

The Pittsburgh Steelers received awful injury news this Tuesday morning. Two of their players have suffered season-ending injuries. One is wide receiver Anthony Miller, who was projected to make the final 53-man roster. The other is safety Karl Joseph. 

Joseph is dealing with an ankle injury that is severe enough to sideline him for the entire 2022 season. Miller, meanwhile, suffered a significant shoulder injury. Both are out for the year. 

"The injuries for Karl Joseph (ankle) and Anthony Miller (shoulder) are season-ending. Tough break for Miller, who was on pace to make the 53-man roster," said Dale Lolley.

ESPN's Jeremey Fowler offers a bit more clarity on the Steelers' injury situation. Anthony Miller's shoulder injury is believed to require several months of recovery, making it nearly impossible for him to play at all this upcoming season. 

"Steelers WR Anthony Miller (shoulder) looking at several months to recover from injury, per source, leaving little hope to return late in year (similar to JuJu Smith-Schuster last year), but as @dlolley_pgh said, this is slated as season-ender. Tough deal for former 2nd Rd pick," said Fowler.

Unfortunately, shoulder injuries have been an issue for Miller throughout his career. We wish him and Joseph the best in their respective recoveries. 

The Steelers get back to work in the preseason this Saturday vs. the Jaguars.
