11:31 AM ET 12.03 | The Pittsburgh Steelers just continue to be assaulted by injuries, as word comes down that corner Ike Taylor is out for three to six weeks with a right ankle injury, according to reports. The injury was suffered on Sunday evening against theBaltimore Ravens in the first quarter. Taylor was in a walking boot before the team left M&T Bank Stadium and will go for an MRI on Monday. It's just another tough loss for Pittsburgh, but something it should be used to at this point. Head coach Mike Tomlin has already had to shuffle the deck repeatedly, with Ben Roethlisberger, Rashard Mendenhall, Marcus Gilbert,Troy Polamalu and others going down earlier in the season.

Cortez Allen didn't do that bad in his place, Anquan Boldin is one tough WR to cover

Swaggin' Medical Center has just upgraded his condtion to: Chillaxin'.
He should be back on the field dropping easy balls in 3-6 weeks.

Maybe. But Harbaugh taught Tomlin something about handshaking etiquette. That's what counts.

That must run in the Harbaugh family.

The worst part is that the Steelers did it with a QB almost 40 and a RG tossing him the snaps, since our usual center got pushed over to cover an injury.

I was more worried about Legursky starting at center than I was missing Big Ben. Tomlin gets **** for keeping Batch on the roster, but the old man is pretty wily. Charlie knows how to win games. I'm just surprised he survived 4 quarters without getting hurt, though.

Jayman, Legursky did fine at center in the SuperBowl, I wasn't worried about him, Pouncey did good at guard, I was worried about the running game, since Charlie apparently couldn't throw well. He sure proved that wrong.

It seems like for every player that gets back into the lineup another one goes down injured.
