Last week, Lawrence Timmons suffered his second ankle injury of the year against the Minnesota Vikings. It is thought that a Steelers defensive lineman rolled up on the back of Timmons’ ankle in an attempt to tackle Adrian Peterson. Earlier this year, Timmons suffered a nagging high ankle sprain that sidelined him for a couple weeks in which Keyaron Fox replaced him sufficiently. However, this injury is the opposite ankle of the one he injured earlier this year.
According to Timmons’, the bye week will allow his ankle to heal and he’s expected to play against the currently undefeated Denver Broncos. However, if Timmons’ can’t play expect Fox to start as his replacement.
