Well at least we can see what Cody Wallace and Vince Williams can do.

Damn, rough break, guys. I really like Pouncey, sucks he's already done.

I had a feeling Foote suffered a bicep injury during the game. I need while he was on the field he kept trying to stretch his arm and was holding his arm. Tough break.....start of a long season.

Tough to lose Pouncey but I'm really excited to see Vince Williams. I think he'll start.

It's hard to envision Pouncey is going to be a long-term Steeler from here on out with that type of injury.

Larry Foote's move probably just means we bring Mcfadden or Stevenson back...which is a major downgrade.

Hopefully we bring in a quality Offensive lineman as well.

Two issues come up here because the team thought keeping Spaeth was so important.

No chance of using the temporary IR tag on either one.

The extra roster spot meant they lost the guy who was presumably their top ILB, McFadden. Granted, they may be able to grab him back from the Raiders practice squad if they chose.

I have a real hard time thinking this team plays a rookie Williams at ILB. We'll see.

Forgive me for thinking that when we draft players, our FO needs to do a better job at scouting people for injury proneness. Almost every season the same guys get hurt, it's like you can almost count on it.

How you can blame that on Pouncey being injury prone, I'll never understand. DeCastro looks like he inured him on purpose.

Honestly losing foote and pouncey might be the worst two people to lose besides big ben. We have very little experienced depth.

Wait what do you mean DeCastro did on purpose?

This! Pouncey was even wearing a brace IIRC. It is seriously like Pouncey slept with DDC's mom or something.

Have you seen the play? If it were a Titans defender there would be a huge uproar, and deservingly so. He did not alter his path at all, it looked as if he was trying to injure Pouncey.

Very weird play.

This, but as others said, I am interested to see young players play. Both Beacham and Vince Williams have golden opportunities to make their marks here.

I have two things to say about this; First of all, I wasn't really talking about Pouncey being injury prone (although he sort of is because it seems almost every year he is injured) because this wasn't a 'typical injury'.

In fact, right now, I'm not necessarily talking about anyone specific, but bank on it, before the end of the season, Gilbert, Foster, & Redman will all be injured.

I was mainly using the injuries today as a platform to suggest that we always have a ton of injuries and the people who "usually" end up injured are the same few people.

Secondly, DeCastro injured Pouncey on purpose? That's just a stupid comment.
