In the midst of the seriousness on the field, Steelers fans were apparently doing the wave at Heinz Field while trainers attended to Taylor. Those who were at the stadium saw the moment and apparently, players tried to get fans to realize what was happening on the field.

Taylor, 24, was a second-round pick of the Seahawks in the 2020 draft. He was a standout pass rusher at Tennessee where he finished in the top five in sacks in the SEC twice. He was placed on the reserve/non-football injury list and wasn’t activated before the end of the season.
