Surgery Ends Hoke’s Season, Possibly His Career

PITTSBURGH (93-7 The FAN) — Steelers nose tackle Chris Hoke is scheduled to have neck surgery that will end his season and possibly his career, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Hoke, 35, injured his neck Oct. 16 and had been listed out with a “stinger” ever since. The decision was reportedly made Tuesday to have surgery, which means both his season and career could be over.

Hoke played in six games this season, starting two in place of Casey Hampton. He has been with the organization since 2001 when he earned his way on to the Steelers’ practice squad.

This season is Hoke’s final season under contract.

Defensive end Aaron Smith has also been lost for the season to a neck injury. His career could be over as well after this season. Smith’s contract comes to an end this season.

Steelers WR/KR Antonio Brown Named AFC Special Teams Player of the Week

Photo

Steelers WR Antonio Brown has received heaps of praise from Steeler Nation, and Wednesday, he received some national recognition.

Brown, a second-year receiver and return man, was named AFC Special Teams Player of the Week on the speed of a 60-yard punt return touchdown in Week 13 against Cincinnati.

Brown, who is second in the AFC with 12.2 yards per punt return, took a kickoff back for a score against Tennessee in 2010, but this is his first punt return touchdown.

Brown also has 50 catches for 774 yards and a touchdown receiving this season.

While fellow second-year man Emmanuel Sanders has recently taken over kick return duties (likely in an effort to keep Brown fresh), Brown is averaging 27.8 yards a kick return this year, with 17 returns of 20+ yards. Both numbers are among the best in the NFL.

Brown's touchdown last week accentuated a thorough thrashing of the visiting Bengals, and special teams highlighted the win. Along with his touchdown, the Steelers blocked a field goal and forced and recovered a fumble.

Steelers NT Chris Hoke to undergo surgery on neck – career in doubt?

Pittsburgh Steelers nose tackle Chris Hoke will undergo season and possibly career-ending surgery on his neck, Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Hoke, 35, has been sidelined since suffering a “stinger” in an October 16 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Signed by the Steelers as an undrafted free agent out of BYU in 2001, Hoke did not appear in a game until 2004 and has totaled 83 tackles and two quarterback sacks in 114 games over the last seven-plus seasons.

The Steelers had re-signed Hoke to a one-year deal after the lockout ended, meaning Hoke will be an unrestricted free agent in 2012.
