Cameron Heyward, DL (PIT)

Officially placed on IR

The Steelers placed Heyward (groin) on injured reserve Thursday.

Heyward needs groin surgery after going down in Week 1. He'll be required to miss a minimum of four games, but it has already been reported that Heyward is likely to miss around eight weeks. We might not see him again until around Thanksgiving. It's obviously a crushing loss to the middle of Pittsburgh's interior defense and pass rush.
