The Steelers were thrilled to have the number two seed in the AFC giving them the upcoming weekend off so that they could rest up some of their injured players—most importantly offensive stars Antonio Brown—who is nursing a calf injury—as well as Le’Veon Bell and Ben Roethlisberger—who are just resting from a long brutal 16 game schedule.
But now, it turns out another key person on offense may be nursing an injury during the bye week: Offensive coordinator Todd Haley.
This, after Pittsburgh police investigated an incident in which Haley was shoved to the ground at a Pittsburgh bar on New Year's Eve.
According to an initial tweet by NFL Network:
Todd Haley’s wife Christine was involved in a “minor scuffle” shortly after midnight January 1. “The scuffle was quickly ended. Todd Haley was not involved nor injured.” Both Haleys were escorted out of the bar. No injuries or charges.
But since then the “Pittsburgh Post-Gazette” has reported the Steelers confirmed Haley had been injured and wasn't at the team's offices yesterday, but that team believes Haley will return to the team later this week.
He should be fine, and while he won’t find himself on a new hip come next year, he may very well find himself on a new team. For those who don’t know, his contract with the team expires this offseason and he’s rumored to be a target for the Dallas Cowboys if they fire offensive coordinator Scott Linehan. Some even believe he may be called in as a potential candidate for the New York Giants' coaching vacancy.
