starting quarterback Jared Goff suffered a strained oblique late in the first quarter.
Goff had minus-1 yard passing in the first quarter and was 11 for 20 for 54 yards passing in regulation.
The Lions felt Goff was OK enough to play through the injury. Goff is backed up by Blough but Boyle recently came off the IR and reports say the Lions do like Boyle. It appears Goff is likely not in the long-term plans for the Lions but reports last week said the team is prepared to ride out Goff for the rest of this year as well as 2022. The numbers were pretty bad against the Steelers, however the problem seems to be Goff is the best option at the moment.
