Current Pittsburgh Steelers running back and former NC State JaySam Jaylen Samuels will be sidelined for roughly a month after having his knee scoped following a sprain suffered in this past weekend’s game.

This is terrible news for football fans everywhere, and especially bad news for the Steelers, who just recently remembered that they did, in fact, have JaySam on their squad. On the season, The Football Swiss Army Knife has 18 carries for 50 yards and a TD, 13 receptions (on 15 targets) for 83 yards, and has also completed 4-of-5 passes for 35 yards because - well - he’s a renaissance man, of course.

So let’s all just pause football for a month because it’s taken a huge hit in the Fun Department.
