Justin Gilbert left practice with knee injury

Gilbert goes down in practice.

NFL: Kansas City Chiefs at Pittsburgh Steelers Jason Bridge-USA TODAY Sports

Former Oklahoma State cornerback and first round pick Justin Gilbert was reportedly carted off the field during practice on Wednesday.

Check out the full post from our SB Nation Pittsburgh Steelers blog, Behind the Steel Curtain. From that post:

Gilbert played 8 snaps in Week 4 against the Kansas City Chiefs, and was primarily used to cover tight end Travis Kelce in specific sub packages. Gilbert did a good job on the field, and seemed to be on the fast track to more playing time, but this knee injury could be a set back for the recently acquired first round draft pick.

Gilbert was traded to the Steelers from the Cleveland Browns on September 3.

Some good news though was reported by Ian Rapoport.

Let’s hope he makes his way back onto the field soon!
