Momentum building as Steelers head west
PITTSBURGH -- The Pittsburgh Steelers' slow climb out of an 0-4 hole is proving costly.
Coach Mike Tomlin said Tuesday that linebacker Lawrence Timmons broke a bone in his hand in the third quarter of a 19-16 win over Baltimore last weekend. Timmons stayed in the game and tied a career-high with 17 tackles as the Steelers posted their second straight victory. The injured hand is now in a cast and Tomlin said he doesn't anticipate Timmons missing Sunday's game at Oakland.
Tomlin said all three starters will have a chance to play against the Raiders (2-4).
