Report: Steelers’ Minkah Fitzpatrick released from hospital

Pittsburgh Steelers star safety Minkah Fitzpatrick was released from a local hospital after sustaining a chest injury in Monday’s game against the visiting Cleveland Browns, NFL Network reported Tuesday.

Per the report, precautionary scans for what was believed to be a chest contusion came back negative.

Fitzpatrick initially was injured on the same play that sidelined Browns running back Nick Chubb in the second quarter of the Steelers’ 26-22 victory. Fitzpatrick returned to the game before being injured in the third quarter while making a tackle on a 69-yard run by Cleveland running back Jerome Ford.

Fitzpatrick, 26, has recorded 10 tackles and two pass deflections in two games (both starts) this season.

A three-time All-Pro and three-time Pro Bowl selection, Fitzpatrick has 458 tackles, 19 interceptions, 49 passed defensed, four forced fumbles, five fumble recoveries and five touchdowns in 81 career games (76 starts) with the Miami Dolphins (2018-19) and Steelers.

The Steelers (1-1) will face the Raiders in Las Vegas on Sunday night.
