The Pittsburgh Steelers losing on the scoreboard this afternoon against the Arizona Cardinals at Acrisure Stadium wasn't the only loss they suffered.
Quarterback Kenny Pickett was injured and did not return, getting replaced by Mitchell Trubisky. And if that weren't enough, Minkah Fitzpatrick suffered a broken hand in his first game back since suffering a hamstring injury in Week 7. The good news is that Fitzpatrick was somehow able to stay in the game, and even said that he plans on playing again this Thursday.
So how much did the broken hand affect his game?
"Not too much, they casted me up during one of the delays and, you know, I couldn't grab with it but I was able to still play," Fitzpatrick said.
"I think I did it making a tackle, and a few plays later I tried to punch with it, and that's when I really noticed it," he continued.
And it sounds as though he's going to attempt to hit the field once again this Thursday as the Steelers host the New England Patriots.
"I'll be fine, I'll wrap it up like we did today and keep it moving," he said.
