The Pittsburgh Steelers defense came alive this weekend against the Buffalo Bills, but they lost one of their promising rookies in the process. Rookie safety Shamarko Thomas was lost for much of the game after he left early in the contest with an ankle injury.

He injured his ankle while attempting to tackles Bills wide receiver Stevie Johnson. The team has announced today that he has a high-ankle sprain and is listed as day-to-day, but that injury typically sidelines players for at least three weeks. He’s been on the field for nearly 200 snaps this year, the Steelers will have to find a way to make up for his loss, and they can do so by theoretically upgrading their defensive backfield.
