    " DeCastro was locked up on Marcell Dareus during a pass attempt and Steelers tackle Marcus Gilbert fell across the back of his right leg."


    I'd like to see a replay of when DD was injured. Gilbert looked sluggish, slow, disinterested and lazy on many plays, and on that play I believe he was simply pushed back on off his feet by a bullrush DL.

    This is why I HATE preseason football. A glorified scrimmage takes out our starting RG until next year's camp. So much for entering the season healthy.....

    Ben was interviewed on NFL net and said to the effect that field turf had a role in this injury, and he wished they would eliminate field turf.

    Gerry Dulac ‏@gerrydulac:

    Mike Tomlin called DeCastro's injury "potentially severe." I'm told it's prob ACL but won't know till tomorrow.

    So we spent our first two picks to shore up our OL, but we'll likely get NO help from EITHER of them this season. Chances are the OL will suck even worse than last year.

    We were all so excited about the DeCastro pick. Maybe we should have taken Hightower after all.

    The line will be made better by the absence of Kemo and the move to guard of Colon (as long as he stays healthy). Foster is at least serviceable. Pouncey needs to jack up Gilbert intensely and often so that he is not a slouch and a slacker, or not a danger to his own teammates. But no room for any more injuries, yet more injuries can be expected, so it's a narrower margin.

    They faced a top-shelf DL tonight.

    Steelers' David DeCastro injures ACL, MCL vs. Bills

    By Marc Sessler
    Published: Aug. 25, 2012

    Pittsburgh Steelers rookie guard David DeCastro suffered injuries to his anterior cruciate and medial collateral ligaments in Saturday night's preseason game and will be out awhile, a source with knowledge of the situation told NFL.com and NFL Network.

    DeCastro was carted off the field with what Steelers coach Mike Tomlin later called a "potentially severe" right knee injury during the first quarter of a 38-7 victory over the Buffalo Bills.

    DeCastro, the Steelers' first-round draft pick, didn't return to the game, and Tomlin said afterward that the rookie would undergo an MRI to determine the severity of the injury.

    On the Steelers' second drive of the game, DeCastro was tangled up with Bills defensive tackle Marcell Dareus on a pass play when Pittsburgh tackle Marcus Gilbert landed on the back of DeCastro's right leg.

    Trainers helped DeCastro to one foot before he was carted off the Ralph Wilson Stadium FieldTurf, which quarterback Ben Roethlisberger blamed for the rookie's injury.

    "Well I just saw him, (and his) spirits are high," Roethlisberger told NFL.com and NFL Network's Kimberly Jones at halftime. "We don't obviously know -- well, I don't know what the official word is. This is a great field, but it's FieldTurf, and it's just killing guys because they can't get their feet out of the ground, and it's just another reason we should get rid of FieldTurf."

    Tomlin and the Steelers used April's draft to rebuild an offensive line that caused problems for Roethlisberger last season. After selecting DeCastro out of Stanford with the No. 24 overall draft pick, the team used its second-round choice on offensive tackle Mike Adams from Ohio State. Both have gotten off to a slow start this preseason.

    UPDATE: Steelers defensive end Brett Keisel also left the game with what Tomlin described afterward as a mild high ankle sprain.

    I guess the best we can hope for is that the injuries are sprains and not tears.
