The problems are piling up for the Steelers’ offensive line.

Starting guard Ramon Foster exited today’s game in London with a chest injury, and the team announced that he will not return. There’s no word on the exact nature of the injury, but the fact that he has already been ruled out for the rest of the day today suggests that it’s not minor.

The Steelers’ offensive line, which lost center Maurkice Pouncey early in the first game of the season, has struggled all year. Losing another starter is going to hurt.

Pittsburgh’s defense isn’t playing particularly well, either, and the Vikings lead 20-17 in the third quarter.
