A bad injury day for the Pittsburgh Steelers got worse on Sunday night, as the team learned that running back LaRod Stephens-Howling tore his ACL, Fox Sports' Mike Garafolo reported. He is likely out for the season.

In all, the Steelers lost Stephens-Howling, center Maurkice Pouncey, and linebacker Larry Foote to season-ending injuries in their Week 1 loss to the Tennessee Titans on Sunday.

Pouncey suffered a torn ACL and torn MCL, injuries that will require surgery and end Pouncey’s season. Foote, meanwhile, ruptured his biceps. Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said he expects both players to miss the remainder of the season.

Stephens-Howling had six carries for 19 yards before exiting, and he still finished as the Steelers' leading rusher in an anemic offensive day. The Steelers were expecting Stephens-Howling to play a big role in their offense and, especially, on special teams as a kick returner. The Steelers are already dealing with an injury to rookie running back Le'Veon Bell, who was inactive on Sunday with a sprained foot.
