Source: Steelers TE David Paulson Sidelined With Foot Or Ankle Injury

The Pittsburgh Steelers will wrap up their third and final OTA session on Thursday with a practice at Heinz Field, and overall they've been pretty lucky when it comes to injuries.

If there is one position where we would all like to see the Pittsburgh Steelers have plenty of depth at it is probably offensive line. Recent injury issues have forced multiple back-ups into the starting line-up and having players capable of stepping in and playing at a high level along the line will be important in 2013 if those trends continue. For that reason I believed the Steelers...

A champion’s leadership had seemingly been a staple of the...

Steve McLendon Hoping For Full-Time Gig as Pittsburgh Steelers Nose Tackle

Last year Steve McLendon looked very good in the snaps he got at nose tackle behind Casey Hampton. The Pittsburgh Steelers must agree because they let Hampton, who has held down that position since 2001, to walk this off-season and are going to replace him with McLendon as the starter in 2013. McLendon can also play defensive end and he is hoping that versatility will allow him to...
