The Pittsburgh Steelers' defence suffered a big blow on Wednesday, as the team believes linebacker Bud Dupree suffered a torn ACL, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo and Aditi Kinkhabwala.

Dupree suffered the injury in the second half of the Steelers' 19-14 win over the Baltimore Ravens. The team is still waiting for tests to confirm the injury, but expects him to miss the remainder of the season.

The 27-year-old sits second on the team with eight sacks and made five tackles against the Ravens. Dupree is set to be a free agent in 2021 after playing the 2020 season under the franchise tag.
