Report: Pittsburgh Steelers, Head Coach Mike Tomlin Fined For Violating Injury Report Policy – CBS Pittsburgh

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – The Pittsburgh Steelers and head coach Mike Tomlin are facing fines for violating the NFL policy regarding Ben Roethlisberger‘s injury.

NFL Insider Ian Rapport reports that the Steelers are being fined $75,000 and Tomlin is being fined $25,000.

He says the team and the coach violated NFL injury report policy by not accurately listing Roethlisberger on the practice report before the team’s game against the Seahawks in week two.

Mike Tomlin offers vague injury updates for Saturday’s second Steelers preseason game | TribLIVE.com

Though Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said he expected more players to play Saturday than did in last week’s preseason opener, he was vague in disclosing any information on most of the injury news regarding players.

Safety Sean Davis again practiced Thursday and is expected to make his preseason debut at Heinz Field against the Chiefs. Center Maurkice Pouncey was in uniform (on a non-padded practice day) but appeared to be in a limited capacity. With his 10-year NFL veteran status, it would be shocking if Pouncey played Saturday.
