NFL Injury Report:
Several Pittsburgh Steelers players, including linebacker
LaMarr Woodley and running back Chris Rainey, were injured during Sunday’s loss
to the Cleveland Browns, but the team offered a bit of good news yesterday when
it announced offensive lineman David DeCastro was activated off injured
reserve, reports Dan Hanzus of NFL.com.
The Steelers activated offensive guard David DeCastro from
injured reserve Monday, a move they hope will add stability to an offensive
line ravaged by injuries.
DeCastro was able to return to practice last week and may be
able to start this weekend for the team’s pivotal matchup against the Baltimore
Woodley and offensive lineman Mike Adams both injured their
ankles against the Browns this weekend, while Rainey was also injured late in
the game. More will be announced regarding those players injured this weekend
throughout the week.

The Pittsburgh Steelers have one less wide receiver on their practice squad right now as the Jacksonville Jaguars signed Toney Clemons to their 53 man roster today.
Clemons was drafted by the Steelers as their first of four seventh-round picks (231st overall) of the 2012 NFL Draft out of Colorado.
The rookie registered just one catch for 14 yards during the preseason for the...
Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said Tuesday during his press conference that quarterback Ben Roethlisberger threw on Monday and that the door was still open for him to play Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens.
While that sounds like a very optimistic outlook, Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported via Twitter on Tuesday after Tomlin talked to the media that...
Assuming the Pittsburgh Steelers don't turn the ball over 8 times this coming Sunday, they still will have a tough chore in beating the Baltimore Ravens should quarterback Ben Roethlisberger not play. Hell, even if Roethlisberger does play it will be a tough chore, as it always is.
Do the Steelers have a chance to win if Charlie Batch winds up starting? Sure they do, but even...
There were so many things that went wrong for the Steelers, in the week 12 loss to the Browns, not the least of which was the 6 fumbles (4 of them lost) by the running backs. No sense going back and reliving the 3 interceptions by Charlie Batch and the final fumble on the last drive of the game; but hey, who’s counting?
For the last month or so Mike Tomlin has preached about going...
Fantasy Football News - Mike Tomlin, during his Tuesday press conference, named Jonathan Dwyer the starting running back for the Steelers in week 13 versus the Baltimore Ravens.
FFLockerRoom Take - That is great news for Dwyer owners who were holding out hope that the cream would rise to the top. Dwyer has been the most effective running back for the Steelers all year. His numbers...
The pre game media release for the Pittsburgh Steelers upcoming game Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens is now out and the included depth chart has a noticeable change on it at the running back position.
Jonathan Dwyer is listed atop the running backs this week on the depth chart with Isaac Redman listed behind him and Rashard Mendenhall listed third. In the pre game release...
Rashard Mendenhall came into Week 12′s matchup as the Steelers starting running back, but that appears to have changed if the team’s recently released depth chart is any indication.
Ed Bouchette tweets that Jonathan Dwyer is now listed as the team’s starting running back, while Mendenhall has dropped to No. 3 behind Issac Redman. The fact that Mendenhall fumbled twice probably...
Below are the initial week 12 offensive and defensive snap counts from the Pittsburgh Steelers 20-14 loss to the Cleveland Browns Sunday.
Thanks to his two fumbles in the game Rashard Mendenhall only played 8 snaps in total, so basically you can say that he was benched. Isaac Redman saw only 5 snaps in the game and the same goes for him. Head coach Mike Tomlin obviously wanted...
@AnthonyLimaFAN Prior to Sunday’s Browns – Steelers game, Cleveland Browns fans lit a Ben Roethlisberger dummy on fire. Poor Big Ben twitter.com/AnthonyLimaFAN… — Anthony Lima (@AnthonyLimaFAN) November 25, 2012 The good news for the Browns today was that Roethlisberger didn’t play on Sunday and Charlie Batch made the start and threw a load of interceptions that led to...
NOW YOU SEE ME...
Most Madden players have probably pulled this move off before but Pittsburgh Steelers running back Chris Rainey did it in real life. Watch as Rainey attempts to score on the red zone touchdown by running straight into the Cleveland Browns defense. After seeing there was no room, Rainey bounced the play outside and scored an easy touchdown: (Courtesy of Cosby Sweaters)
Could there be a Pennsylvania football curse? The Pittsburgh Steelers could be on pace to sink as fast as the Philadelphia Eagles. The two situations are comprised of very different circumstances yet their end result could be the same in that neither team will cash in their post-season expectations. Despite holding out hope that injured [...]

While it remains unclear if Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback
Ben Roethlisberger (rib/shoulder) will be able to suit up this weekend against
the Baltimore Ravens, coach Mike Tomlin sounded positive regarding the chances
of wide receiver Antonio Brown (ankle) and safety Troy Polamalu (calf) playing
Sunday, reports Gregg Rosenthal of NFL.com.
Tomlin also sounded positive about...
It is hard to tell which defense is going to show up for the Cleveland Browns, today the defense that can dominate on the field showed up. The Cleveland defense forced the Pittsburgh Steelers to fumble the football 10 times losing it 8 times. The Browns defense played a great game against the Steelers today to close out what I am calling rivalry weekend with another win in the Buckeye...
