People that complained about a number of star Steelers not playing in Sunday’s first preseason game should take note of this – the team very well could have just lost a big player for 2015 already.

That player is kicker Shaun Suisham, who is telling people he believes he tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee, ending his 2015 season before it even gets started.

Suisham is scheduled to have an MRI on Monday, and if confirmed as a tear, the team will have to move quickly to find someone that can kick.

The injury took place while trying to make a tackle on a second-half kickoff.

The 33-year-old has been a steal for the Steelers since replacing Jeff Reed in 2010, and signed a four-year deal last August.

If you think it’s not a big loss, think again, as Suisham is 87-of-95 (91.5 percent) over the last three seasons.

So who would the Steelers take a look at if they lose their kicker? Right now on the free agent wire there’s Shayne Graham, Garrett Hartley and Rian Lindell.

Expect a move ASAP once the injury is officially confirmed.
