Pittsburgh Steelers nose tackle Casey Hampton indicated on Wednesday that he’s still optimistic that he’ll be ready for week one of the regular season–after tearing his ACL in his left knee back in January.
“I’m planning on coming back for the season,” Hampton said Wednesday, per ESPN.com. “That’s what I’m looking at. That’s realistic for me. I don’t know about anybody else.
Hampton doesn’t believe the Steelers will place him on the PUP list to start out the season.
“Nah, I can’t see that happening,” he said. “I feel like I’m ready to go.”
Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert is pretty optimistic about Hampton’s health as well.
“The one edge Casey will have on anybody is that he’s been through this [injury] twice,” Colbert said back in February. “He knows what to expect. He knows how to do this. He knows how much work he has to do and he knows how he feels.”

Let me start this post off by saying that I have littered before. I have done it more than once in my life as well. Not recently mind you, but I have done it. In addition, I have never been ticketed or fined for it. Boy, that feels good to get that off my chest.
It seems that Pittsburgh Steelers wide receivers Emmanuel Sanders and Antonio Brown have also littered in their past as...

The Top 100 Players of 2012 rolled on last night with Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger ranking 30th and outside linebacker James Harrison ranking 29th on the list that none of the players seem to admit voting for.

-B- The Steelers wrapped up their mini-camp today with a little bit of fun. The quarterbacks had a longest throw competition and the winner was big Byron Leftwich, who bested Troy Smith in the last round with a throw of over 70 yards. Pretty impressive. No word if Roethlisberger participated or how far he threw.
-B- Speaking of Big Ben, he was ranked the 30th best player in...
Steelers receiver Emmanuel Sanders was scrapped as the face of an anti-littering campaign after he was fined for failing to put out the trash properly, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reported.
Sanders appeared earlier in the week in Allegheny County Common Pleas Court alongside teammate Antonio Brown as the pair pleaded guilty to leaving boxes behind a private dumpster in the Beltzhoover...
News is slow at this time of the offseason. We all know it. That's why the following is such a huge deal for Steelers fans. Wide receivers Emmanuel Sanders and Antontio Brown pleaded guilty on Monday to leaving boxes by a private dumpster.
You read that right. They pleaded guilty -- to leaving boxes -- by a dumpster.
We'll just go ahead and ignore the fact that they actually...
The Mike Wallace ordeal has been the talk and focus of the Pittsburgh Steelers off-season thus far. From Wallace asking for outrageous money from teams interested in him as a free agent, to his walk of shame back to the ‘Burgh after no teams would pony up that kind of dough, #17 has been the talk of the town.
The date to watch is June 15th, as that is the deadline for Wallace to...
Restricted free agent Mike Wallace is absent from the Steelers’ mandatory minicamp. The word “mandatory” is a little misleading because it’s only mandatory if a player is under contract, which Wallace, who has yet to sign his restricted free agent tender, is not currently, so the Steelers can’t fine him. However, they can reduce his tender value from 2.742 million to 577...
Welp, the late Mr. James here had his life tragically cut short just shy of his 24th birthday. On the bright side, he died before having to watch the Steelers lose to the Packers in Super Bowl XLV two and a half months later. So that’s nice. Oh, and he has a giant Steelers helmet on his grave, which is hopefully something he asked for before dying. I feel like it has to be. Then...
For the most part Steelers rookies are brought in to learn for at least a year before taking over their respective positions. Many players spend years on special teams before cracking the starting line-up on the Steelers defense. In recent years the Steelers have seen rookies playing right away due Continue
