The Pittsburgh Steelers fear they have lost defensive end Stephon Tuitt for the season. He tore his biceps on Sunday against the Cleveland Browns.
His injury comes one day after he signed an extension with the team. He signed a five-year, $61 million deal on Saturday.
He will undergo an MRI on Monday. If he’s done for the season, it’s going to be a huge loss for the team.
According to WebMD, the biceps muscle functions as the flexor of the elbow. The biceps brings the hand towards the shoulder by bending at the elbow.
When a rupture happens in the biceps muscle, it’s either the proximal (close) or distal (far). The distal ruptures, the medical publication, says are very rare.
The proximal ruptures occurs where the biceps attaches at the top of the shoulder.
We do not know what kind of torn biceps Tuitt suffered. However, we do know he’ll be lost for the season.
