    David Decastro not on IR?

    The Steelers roster has him listed as second string behind Ramon Foster. Is Decastro now only going to be out a few weeks?

    From what I hear he may go on this new 8 week IR.....which will give the Steelers the ability to add a little depth. I believe they can make that happen tomorrow!!

    However, the "little depth" many expect them to add is to bring everyone's favoriate (well, at least Chadman's favorite anyway) Trai Essex back into the fold.

    2 DT Austin Johnson Penn State 6-4 314
    3 SS Jeremy Cash Duke 6-0 212

    6 WR Moritz Boehringer Germany 6-4 227
    7 OT Brandon Shell South Carolina 6-5 324
    7 RB Tre Madden USC 6-0 223

    DE David Onyemata, LB Ian Seau, FS Jordan Lomax, CB DeAndre Elliott,

    We would be better off just keeping DeCastro on the roster.
    Crush your enemies, see them driven before you, hear the lamentations of their women.

    "The Steelers can put DeCastro on injured reserve after 4 p.m. Tuesday, thereby qualifying him for a return after midseason. The Steelers are expected to sign Trai Essex to replace DeCastro, but doing so next week could save the team money as well as keep their options open for a serious injury at a more important position, like quarterback.

    The Steelers normally activate only seven offensive linemen, so Mike Adams (LT-RT) and Doug Legursky (C-G) should provide enough flexibility for Denver."

    Essex is like that rash that just won't go away.
    1.25 CB Eli Apple-DB-tOSU
    2.58 SS Vonn Bell-DB tOSU
    3.89 DT Javon Hargrave-SC State
    4.123 DE-Matt Judon-Grand Valley State
    6.220 RB-Tyler Erwin-San Jose State
    7.229 WR Geronimo Allison-Ilinois
    7.246 QB-Cody Kessler-USC

    I've read a lot of people speculating that DeCastro won't be placed on the short IR, at least not right away, to give the team some flexibility in case somebody else is injured later.

    If the move is made for Essex, it would make sense for the Steelers to wait until after week 1 so that his salary is not guaranteed.
