Greater Johnstown High School graduate Larod Stephens-Howling has torn his ACL in Sunday's Pittsburgh Steelers opener, according to NFL.com's Ian Rapoport.
Stephens-Howling, a four-year NFL veteran signed by the Steelers in April, left Sunday's game with an apparent knee injury with four minutes remaining in the third quarter. Larod rushed six times for a team-leading 19 yards before leaving the field with help from trainers.
6 Sports caught up with Stephens-Howling after Sunday's 19-6 loss to Tennessee as he was leaving Heinz Field for a Pittsburgh-area hospital to have an MRI on his right knee.
Larod's potentially season-ending knee injury was one of possibly three Steelers to be lost for the year on Sunday. Center Maurkice Pouncey reportedly tore his ACL and MCL and will undergo season-ending knee surgery this week. Linebacker Larry Foote also will undergo surgery for a torn biceps.
“It can’t get much worse, but the only way to go is up," said Steelers guard David DeCastro, who dove into Pouncey's leg. "We gotta get back as a team and as a unit. We gotta get back together and be on the same page. You gotta come back and be stronger.”
Pouncey left on the Steelers first posession, and the offense went downhill from there. Steelers running backs ran for 32 yards and the team amassed 194 yards for the entire game. Pittsburgh's offense was shutout until under two minutes remaining.
"Nobody cares about our problems," said Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin. "They’re glad we’ve got them. We need to understand that. We need to stick together and persevere."
