Steelers Cornerback Suffers Concussion In Sunday's Game

He was forced out of Sunday's game against the Baltimore Ravens early.

Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback James Pierre was ruled of Week 17's game with a concussion.

Pierre was checked for a head injury in the first half on Sunday, and now that he officially has a concussion, he'll have to follow league protocols in order to gain clearance for Week 18's big game against the Cleveland Browns.

In 16 games this season, the twenty-six-year-old has 25 total tackles, one interception and three passes defended.
