sick to my stomach.
Season = over. It's sad to say it, but really hard to see us seriously contending with the offensive line as currently constituted.
Starks, Kemo, Pouncey, Foster, Gilbert

[B]David DeCastro carted off early for the Steelers[/B]
Posted by Josh Alper on August 25, 2012
The Steelers’ second drive of their game against the Bills was a costly one.
Running back Isaac Redman and right guard David DeCastro needed medical attention after consecutive plays in the first quarter at Buffalo. It looks like DeCastro has suffered the more serious injury.
DeCastro was locked up on Marcell Dareus during a pass attempt and Steelers tackle Marcus Gilbert fell across the back of his right leg. He was able to stand on one foot, but put no pressure on the right foot before being carted off to the locker room. Ramon Foster, who has already played several positions in the preseason, will take over for the first-round pick.
Redman appeared to injure his neck the play before DeCastro went down. He was on all fours on the field for a bit before walking to the sideline, where Redman looked to be okay as the medical staff moved on to work on DeCastro.
[B]UPDATE:[/B] Redman returned to the game on the next Steelers possession. The Steelers say he had a stinger and confirmed that DeCastro will not return with what they’re calling a right knee injury.
Ummm, where is this info. coming from? I'm watching the game on TV- Foster started the game and I've not seen Decastro go in at all. Could the injury have happened before the game??? This is wierd info..
Also, Foster is playing well.. Announcers are saying- no drop off at all in OG play.
Media on here is talking about the dink and dunk offense Haley seems to have implemented... Hoping that with the return of Wallace this will change....
OK- further info... DeCastro must have went in for 1 series- (while I was eating pizza with then family) happened that quick.... Still waiting for an update---
This must have happened right away then... Foster was even listed on the tv as the startin RG..... wierd...
DeCastro started the game, Foster went in for him after DeCastro was carted off the field with a right knee injury.
Crazy... Like I was saying... They even had Foster listed as the starting RG on TV....oh well...I'll keep watching for further info...
They even had 2 3 and outs on their 1st 2 possessions.....
Redman is playing....
it happened on the Steelers' second drive of the game, hope he's going to be okay...
It's especially tough losing him right now. If it is to happen... at least you'd wish that the rookie got himself a taste of real NFL football... and that he was able to feel a part of this 2012 season.
