Fernando Velasco’s Rough Send-Off Due To More Than Injury

By Matthew Marczi There’s no doubt that the Steelers owe a great deal of thanks to Fernando Velasco and the job that he was able to do coming in cold and starting in Week Two, providing stability to a key unit that was threatening to unravel after just eight snaps.
