    Yep, listening now. The injury report is long.

    Timmons will move to the outside and Foote will take Timmons' spot on the inside.

    This week, our starting ILB's, Foote and Farrior, are both tortoises. And the RB they need to stop, Chris Johnson, is undoubtedly a hare. Not good. Not good at all.

    And with Farrior and Foote inside you can expect teams to be able to run the ball even better. Neither of these two are very good at the point of attack. It's one thing for one of your ILB's getting engulfed but to have two is a huge problem.

    Top ten pick 2012 NFL draft. We need to hit a huge home run with that.

    Harrison out several weeks with orbital fracture
    Tuesday, October 04, 2011
    By Ed Bouchette, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

    Linebacker James Harrison has an orbital fracture around his right eye, will undergo surgery on Wednesday and will be out "a number of weeks," according to Steelers coach Mike Tomlin.

    He's not the only one.

    Tomlin said at his weekly newsconference today that Aaron Smith has a mid-foot sprain and is extremely questionable for Sunday's game against Tennessee at Heinz Field. Jason Worilds, who backs up Harrison, has a quad strain that makes him doubtful for the game as well.

    Halfback Mewelde Moore has a left ankle sprain that may keep him out of the game and starting halfback Rashard Mendenhall has a right hamstring that will at the very least limit him in practice.

    The Steelers worked out at least one running back today, a candidate to help them on the practice squad if they have to sign rookie halfback John Clay from that unit.

    There was some good news on the injury front. Tomlin said quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has a sprained left foot that may limit him in practice but the Steelers "anticipate him participating" in the game on Sunday.

    Also, Tomlin said players who have been out with injuries should return this week, including guard Doug Legrusky, tackle Jonathan Scott and cornerback Bryant McFadden.

    I'm not sure this is the week to throw sly into the mix.

    foote may be the better option.

    Jeezus. Could this season get any worse? Let's be realistic people. This will be a lost season. Those come along once in a while. The 2012 draft will be huge. They all are, but this one will carry even more weight since we will most likely be picking higher than we have in years.

    I do hope we get to see a bit of Sly in this game. How much worse can he be than Foote?
