"He'll be given an opportunity to redeem himself; we'll see where that takes us." Due to the serious knee injury suffered Sunday by LaRod Stephens-Howling that will force him to miss the rest of the season, the Steelers re-signed Jonathan Dwyer on Monday.

It's amazing how much I missed football. I didn't realize it until the full Sunday slate kicked off and then for 15 minutes I was ecstatic.
