The Pittsburgh Steelers lost their preseason debut in Sunday night's Hall of Fame game. They also may have potentially lost their franchise kicker for an extended period.

Shaun Suisham sustained a "potentially significant left knee injury" head coach Mike Tomlin said following the game, according to the Pittsburgh Post Gazette's Ed Bouchette.

Suisham is the only kicker on the Steelers' roster, so general manager Kevin Colbert and staff may need to bring in a few kickers on a tryout basis this week.
