Black and Gold Forever:
In a flurry of roster moves today, the Steelers placed offensive tackle Levi Brown on the injured reserve today which ends his season.
Perhaps the Steelers are just not allowed to have an offensive line this year.
The Steelers had acquired Brown in a trade with the Arizona Cardinals at the beginning of October. Here's what happened since, per ProFootballTalk.com:
Brown, the offensive tackle obtained in a trade with the Cardinals on October 2, has been placed on injured reserve without playing a single game for the Steelers.
The Steelers expected Brown to play on Sunday, but he suffered a triceps injury in pregame warmups, and that injury has now ended his season.
It is a blow to a team that has already had trouble keeping Ben Roethlisberger upright and establishing a consistent running attack.
Further complicating matters is that the Steelers also placed tight end David Johnson on the injured reserve with a wrist injury. In their place, the team has promoted Isiah Green from the practice squad and signed free agent tight end Richard Gordon.
What else can be said except, "Next man up!" at this point?

When you really think about it, this game just seemed to fit everything the Pittsburgh Steelers needed in order to get win number one of the 2013 NFL season. The New York Jets were coming off a short week following their win in Atlanta.
