The training camp injuries keep piling up. This time, the injury bug hit the Pittsburgh Steelers and a starting offensive lineman.

Offensive guard Ramon Foster was injured on a passing play from Landry Jones to Antonio Brown. Foster had to be carted off the field with what looked like an apparent knee injury.

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler was at camp and noticed the injury.

Here's what he had to say.

The first week of training camp has brought several significant injuries to starters across the league. Foster would be the last in a rash of injuries that could leave teams without key pieces for the 2018 season.

Pittsburgh already lost a key piece of the offensive line during OTA's earlier this year. Offensive tackle Jerald Hawkins suffered a torn quadriceps, ruling him out for the year.

Since going undrafted in 2009, Foster has started 115 games for the Steelers. He's been a stalwart on an offensive line that has remained relatively healthy in recent years.
