    Report: Steelers S Sean Davis Suffered Torn Labrum Against Seahawks

    Report: Steelers S Sean Davis Suffered Torn Labrum Against Seahawks

    By Dave Bryan
    Posted on September 17, 2019

    The Pittsburgh Steelers acquired versatile defensive back Minkah Fitzpatrick from the Miami Dolphins Monday night and that required them giving up a 2020 first-round draft pick as part of the package. It will now be interesting to see how the Steelers ultimately use Fitzpatrick on defense moving forward and especially with safety Sean Davis reportedly now dealing with a shoulder injury.

    According to Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Monday night, Davis suffered a torn labrum in his right shoulder in the teamís Sunday home loss to the Seattle Seahawks. That injury, however, is not expected to end Davisí season.

    Davis announced in May of 2017 that he played most of his 2016 rookie season with a torn labrum. However, its unclear still which shoulder that was.

    Davis played 55 of the 79 total defensive snaps that the Steelers had Sunday against the Seahawks and he left the game later in the second half with his shoulder injury. Davis missed the Steelers regular season opener against the New England Patriots with an ankle injury.

    Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin will hold his weekly press conference on Tuesday and hopefully heíll give a status update on Davis at that time.

    As much as Davis gets bashed, got to wonder if the Seahawks 2nd half success was because Davis was out of the game????

    I think a lot of the success vs us in the passing game was because Davis was out vs Brady as well.

    that and we looked gassed in the 2nd half...and that has as much to do with the ineptness of the offense (3 and outs) as anything. Also says something about butlers inability to make in game adjustments in the 2nd half (shadowing wilson) etc

    Fitzpatrick is undoubtedly a talented player. You can debate the price the Steelers paid to acquire him, but he's talented. However, there is another issue here. The Steelers came into this season without adequate depth at safety. The depth behind Davis and Edmunds was paper thin. The Steelers completely ignored the position during the draft and in free agency and were counting on an undrafted rookie as the top backup. Their lack of preparation forced them into this move.

    They took the same gamble at TE. Seeing McDonald in the medical tent on Sunday was just a reminder of how thin the depth is at that position.

    I realize that you can't be 3 starters deep at every position, but the FO came into this season without adequate depth and was essentially forced to make a trade.

    Is it for sure he's playing safety?
    From the 2010-2018 season, (An 8 year period that the majority of Cowher's players & coaches had left) Mike Tomlin has only won 3 playoff games. And two of those wins were against back up Quarterbacks. Our history has been defined by what we do in the postseason; not the regular season.

    My official proclamation: WE WILL NOT WIN ANOTHER SUPER BOWL WITH MIKE TOMLIN AS OUR HEAD COACH. SO WHY DELAY THE INEVITABLE?

    FIRE MIKE TOMLIN

    Yes.

    We have Haden and Nelson at CB.

    Why wouldn’t he play Safety?

    Because he seems to have specifically asked the Fins not to play safety and it seems to be part of the reason he wanted to leave.

    He specifically asked the coaches to play him at one position and stop moving him around. He’s fine with playing safety.
