With the news that Pittsburgh Steelers inside linebacker Larry Foote may very well be lost for the rest of the season followed a ruptured bicep suffered in the team’s opening game loss to the Tennessee Titans, there may very well be a roster move in the near future to bring back one of the team’s preseason inside linebackers.
The most likely candidate would be to bring back Marshall McFadden, who was the Steelers’ second-team Buck linebacker and was with the team last season as well. He was a surprise cut, and is currently on the practice squad of the Oakland Raiders.
It is possible that the Steelers ultimately keep just four inside linebackers on the roster, assuming Foote is eventually placed on injured reserve, with McFadden eventually being moved to the practice squad, but a more permanent move to the 53-man roster seems most likely. In order for the Steelers to be able to move McFadden to the practice squad, they would, by rule, need to keep him on the 53-man...
BEST OF MAXIM
According to Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, the Pittsburgh Steelers still might re-sign inside linebacker Stevenson Sylvester to replace injured linebacker Larry Foote, who was placed on injured reserve Monday with a torn bicep.

Following the ruptured biceps injury suffered by Pittsburgh Steelers starting inside linebacker Larry Foote, who was just placed on injured reserve, it goes without saying that the team must turn to somebody else now at the position after Foote played nearly every snap just a season ago.

According to the Pittsburgh Steelers official depth chart, linebacker Kion Wilson will start in place of Larry Foote who’s now done for the season after suffering a ruptured biceps injury this past weekend.

After one game, there should be no need for panic, but after what happened to the Steelers, I believe it is time to panic. 16 NFL teams are currently 0-1, but the Steelers are much more than that. It doesn’t look like anything has changed from last season, and the offense looks even worse. And on top of that, Pittsburgh is now down two starters.
