Getting hamstring examined
Freiermuth is scheduled to get imaging on his hamstring Monday, Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Dulac notes that while the Steelers don't yet know the full extent of the injury, the tight end is dealing with more than a minor tweak. Freiermuth's status for Week 5 against the Ravens appears to be up in the air after the hamstring injury forced him out of Sunday's loss to the Texans in the second half. Darnell Washington, a 2023 third-round pick, would likely be in line to start at tight end if Freiermuth isn't available, while Connor Heyward also could see an expanded profile on offense.
