Packers vs. Steelers, Preseason Week 2: Game thread #2

So many injuries…

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Don't fall down at Heinz Field.

So far, the Green Bay Packers have watched as top wideout Jordy Nelson and starting right guard T.J. Lang left the field with injuries. Nelson's appears to be related to his leg or ankle where as Lang might have hit his head on the turf. Both players have not returned and likely won't given that the game doesn't count in the standings. As for the Pittsburgh Steelers, Stephon Tuitt and Maurkice Pouncey both left the game with potentially serious injuries.

In non-injury developments, Don Barclay played capably on the Packers' first drive... and terribly after that. Barclay allowed James Harrison to sack Aaron Rodgers in the end zone for a safety and another sack after Scott Tolzien came in on the subsequent drive. Barclay hasn't performed well in camp, and suddenly his spot on the roster looks far from guaranteed.
