The injuries keep piling up in Pittsburgh.

Steelers running back LaRod Stephens-howling has suffered a torn ACL in his right knee and will miss the rest of the season, according to FoxSports.com. Stephens-Howling was injured in the third quarter after catching a 7-yard pass from Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.

Week 1 really couldn't have gone worse for Pittsburgh. Not only did the the Steelers lose at home to Tennessee, they also lost two other players besides Stephens-Howling to season-ending injuries.

Both Maurkice Pouncey and Larry Foote are out for the year too after suffering injuries against the Titans. Pouncey injured both his ACL and MCL, while Foote's season is over is done thanks to a ruptured biceps.

With Stephens-Howling's injury, the Steelers are now down to just two healthy running backs on their roster in Felix Jones and Isaac Redman. Jones has been in Pittsburgh for less than a month, the Steelers landed him in a trade with Philadelphia on Aug. 23.
