    Lets hope that Cortez Allen comes back soon. The toughest part of Lewis leaving was not replacing him - I think Allen will do that just fine. It's replacing Allen and the depth behind the 2 starters.
    This is the best news that I've heard so far:

    Heath Miller has yet to be removed from the physically unable to perform list and likely won't be for at least a few more weeks. However, that hasn't stopped the injured tight end from working out feverishly on Field 3 during practice. Miller was running nearly the length of the field dragging a heavy weight attached to a long strap, and he looked strong doing it.

    Great news. Heath is critical but still betting they make sure he is 110% before they get him into game action. I'm betting about week 4 or 5.
    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!

    That is a very good guess.

    Then they would have to take him off PUP, making him count against the 53 man roster from week 1. If he is still on PUP when the real games start, then he has to miss a minimum of 6 weeks.

    It's Embernate right knee. He's in a lot of pain. Was steelers highest paid undrafted guy. Team was very high on him.

    Embernate hurt knee. Appears to be serious.

    Crap...I liked Embernasty. If need be, we can put him on IR, essentially giving him a medical redshirt for his rookie season, and bring him back to compete next year. May be an opening for someone like Cheadle, Long, or Golic now though.

    Gilbert is horrible. I hope we make a move or switch him to RT. He's a Baby Huey...

    I'm betting on Golic. He can play all three OL positions although probably best on the inside. Off Tackle is frighteningly thin for us. Don't know what the Front Office was think in the off season.

    If they go that route, Heath would only miss 5 games due to the early bye. That would make the Ravens the first game for which he would be eligible to return.

    +1...Was he the only player that needed help after the run test?
