Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said Tuesday that defensive back Minkah Fitzpatrick avoided a serious chest injury, and was evaluated at a local hospital out of caution. Because of the short week this week prior to the Steelers Sunday night game, his availability could be in question.
The Steelers play the Raiders in their first game in Las Vegas. The Steelers have not won a road game against the Raiders since 1995. The Steelers won last year’s meeting 13-10 in Pittsburgh. The Raiders are early 1-1/2 point favorites.
