Just got the report on my phone. Torn ACL of right knee. Where the hell is Gardocki. I bet he still hasn't had a punt blocked.......

Sad for Sep. He was having a very good year, and he's a good teammate.

Does anyone know how he got hurt? Wouldn't there almost have to be a roughing or running into the kicker penalty for him to get hurt?

Truly for sad for the guy on a personal level. This is his 3rd knee injury and probably the end of his career as he knows it. There is no way the Steelers will invest in this guy in the future with these non-contact injuries to his knee!!! This could be a big loss for this team, hopefully they can find someone off the scrap heap that will be at least somewhat competent. Where's Harry Newsome or Mark Royals??? LOL, just kidding!!! Anyone know who is available in free agency???

You wouldn't know it to look at him...he looks more like a strong safety than punter. Knees don't give a crap though, they go when they want to - sorry to see this happen to him.

I believe he was trying to get to the returner on a runback.

Yeah really sad for him and us, for that matter. But do we rehab him of move on planning to go in a new direction all together. Tough call.

Steelers looking for punter in wake of Sepulveda injury
By Pittsburgh Tribune-Review
Monday, December 6, 2010

The Steelers will sign a punter this week after Daniel Sepulveda was lost for the season while trying to make a tackle in a 13-10 win against the Ravens.

Sepulveda tore the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in his right knee when his cleat got caught in the turf at M&T Bank Stadium. It happened during Lardarius Webb’s 35-yard punt return early in the second quarter. Sepulveda stayed in the game to hold for field goal and extra point attempts by Shaun Suisham, but Suisham punted the rest of the way.

The injury to his plant leg is the same one that Sepulveda sustained during training camp in 2008.

Injuries continue to mount for the Steelers.

In addition to Sepulveda, tight end Heath Miller got knocked out of thegame with a concussion, and right tackle Flozell Adams sustained a high ankle sprain.

“We’ll put the healthy men on the field next week and move forward,” Coach Mike Tomlin said after the Steelers improved to 9-3.

I'd try calling Jeff Feagles. He's old as dirt, but he is as consistent as the sun rising and he knows how to punt the deep corner kick (a lost art) The Giants had him signed up in the spring, but finally let him go

Now we will see why you spend a 4th round draft pick on a punter/kicker. The number of times they potentially have a game changing situation in their hands/feet will unfortunately be illustrated over the next 5 games.

I fear we will see how valuable Sep was like we learned about Max Starks. The "haters" will learn.

Read on another board that Piotr Czech was also a punter in college. Would be an interesting add plus an option for deeper kick offs.
