Darrell Taylor carted off field with neck injury in scary scene
Darrell Taylor was down for several minutes before being carted off the field at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh on Sunday night due to a neck injury.
The Steelers had a 2nd-and-1 with just over three minutes left in the game, which was tied at 17. Pittsburgh handed the ball to Najee Harris, who rushed for a first down.
Taylor was one of three Seahawks defenders who helped made the tackle. He appeared to run into a teammate while making the tackle and fell to the ground immediately.
