CANTON, Ohio -- Kicker Shaun Suisham left the Steelers' locker room on crutches after suffering what coach Mike Tomlin termed a "potentially significant" left knee injury during the preseason loss to the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday night.
Tomlin could not confirm exactly when or how the 33-year-old Suisham suffered the injury, but he handled the second-half kickoff and left the field shortly thereafter. He left the locker room with his knee heavily wrapped under a pair of track pants.
"I don't have any more information at this time," Tomlin said on the field after the game. "We're going to evaluate him."
Entering his 11th season in the NFL and sixth with the Steelers, Suisham has made nine game-winning field goals with the team and has made his past 32 attempts from between 40-49 yards since 2012 -- the longest active streak in the league. He has made 87.9 percent of his kicks with the Steelers, the best rate in franchise history.
