    Not a good sign for Keenan Lewis or Cortez Allen possibly returning this week. We need to double cover A.J. Green everywhere.

    2.56 TE Clive Walford, 6'4" 251
    3.87 CB Alex Carter, 6'0" 196
    4.121 OT Donovan Smith, 6'6" 338
    5.160 FS Kurtis Drummond, 6'1" 208
    6.199 WR Stefon Diggs, 6'0" 195
    6.212c CB Cam Thomas, 6'0" 195
    7.239 OLB Obum Gwachum, 6'5" 246

    Not a good sign because that likely means Lewis won't be able to play. AJ Green is going to be running wild through the secondary unless LeBeau figures out how to get to Dalton.
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    Van Dyke is hurt as well, so hopefully this is a depth move. If Taylor, Lewis and Allen are all out, covering Green is going to be a nightmare. I'd imagine that Troy will have to play deep again to help with Green.

    doesn't look good for the defensive backfield.

    while lebeau is figuring out how to control dalton and green, now might be a good time for haley to get this offense out of 2nd gear. He certainly has enough healthy pieces to work with.

    Well, that seals it. The Steelers are winning the Super Bowl. Just had to get that PSU player on the roster, and the rest will take care of itself.

    Dale Lolley is reporting that Kennan Lewis and Cortez Allen will be playing this weekend. Also reported that Mike Adams is practicing.

    Also reporting that Van Dyke is put on IR, that explains the Justin King signing.

    Also says that Taylor is out of his boot, but will be out for this game.

    Only good thing about all these injuries is we are getting see what the young guys can do in game situations versus speculating because of practice play. They will learn alot.

    Just heard the PC. Van Dyke is out for the year, so they brought in King. Allen is OK to play. Mike Adams is coming back to practice too.

    I was listening to 93.7 the Fan a little while ago and Allen and Lewis are apparently good for Sunday. They signed King because Van Dyke is done for the year and Ike is still sidelined.

    EDIT: Also late to this party.
