    Condolences to Limas, hope it is not serious still. Really want to see him make it, for the Steelers and for himself.
    PLEASE DON'T FEED THE TROLLS

    Unfortunate that it happened. I hoped that he would become a good player for us.

    At least the Steelers can look at some other options at WR before the season starts. They might bring Galloway back.

    Galloway has already signed with somebody. I can't remember who at the moment.
    Tuff break for Limas. I was really rooting for him to turn it around. Bummer!

    Galloway signed w the Deadskins.

    Why would anyone wish Sweed to be out for the season. I'm willing to see him at least make an effort. I'd rather see his career end b/c he was a flat out bust than b/c of an injury.

    drafting two WRs this year is starting to look like a smart move...



    Steelers wide receiver may have serious tendon injury

    Sunday, May 02, 2010
    By Ed Bouchette, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette


    The bad luck continued today for Steelers wide receiver Limas Sweed, who left the final minicamp practice with what appears to be a serious Achilles tendon injury, coach Mike Tomlin revealed.

    Sweed, the team's second-round draft pick in 2008, was mounting a comeback from some emotional issues that caused the Steelers to place him on injured reserve for the final two games of last season.

    If the tendon is ruptured, it likely would mean that Sweed could not play in 2010.

    The news lately about him getting past whatever his issue(s) were gave me hope that this year he could finally put it all together. I feel bad that we wont have that opportunity anymore.

    The Steelers can still put him on IR and keep him on the team, while allowing for a guy like Antonio Brown to come out of nowhere and make it.

    I wasn't wishing him out... but an Achilles is probably the worst injury a WR could have...

    I will admit, I had zero faith in him turning it around as a Steeler due to those horrible drops. I wish him the best and think a new team may be his only hope.

    The kid made a nice amount of money though...
