Ike Taylor injury: Steelers awaiting results of MRI

Jim O'Connor-US PRESSWIRE

The Steelers cornerback should get MRI results Tuesday.

The consecutive games played streak by Pittsburgh Steelers veteran Ike Taylor could be in jeopardy as the cornerback will get his MRI results Tuesday which could reveal an injury to his fibula, the Observer-Reporter's F. Dale Lolley is reporting.

Taylor, who has played in 135 consecutive games, was injured on just the second play of Sunday's 23-20 victory over the Baltimore Ravens.

If an injury is discovered, the 10-year corner could become the latest Steeler to miss games. Pittsburgh is waiting for starting quarterback Ben Roethlisberger to get healthy, while Sunday marked the first time this season the Steelers' defense started their projected secondary.

However, if there's a defense that can overcome injuries, it's the Steelers defense.

Last week without Taylor, the Pittsburgh defense allowed just 188 passing yards from Baltimore quarterback Joe Flacco. And fortunately for Pittsburgh, a majority of the season has seen the Steelers to shuffle its defense to adjust to injuries.

On Sunday, the Steelers host the San Diego Chargers (1 p.m. ET on CBS).
