Steelers safety Minkah Fitzpatrick was not present for the upset that the team’s defense caused at the end of Monday night’s game against the Browns.
Fitzpatrick left the game in the third quarter with a chest injury and head coach Mike Tomlin announced he was no longer at the stadium while speaking to reporters at his postgame news conference.
“Minkah is is evaluated in the hospital with a chest injury,” Tomlin said, via Chris Adamski of the Pittsburgh Tribune Review.
Tomlin said he expects to receive more information about Fitzpatrick’s condition when he meets with the media on Tuesday. Fitzpatrick had six tackles, including one on a 69-yarder from Jerome Ford, during which he appeared to suffer a chest injury.
Steelers wide receiver Gunner Olszewski was also ejected from the game. He was evaluated for a concussion after injuring himself while fumbling in the first half.
