Report: Worilds Recovering From Wrist Surgery, Harrison Dealing With Inflamed Knee

The Pittsburgh Steelers are wrapping up their third and final OTA session of the 2012 season on Thursday and we finally have some clarity now as to why linebackers Jason Worilds and James Harrison have been sidelined.

Mark Kaboly of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports on Twitter that Worilds, who has not taken part in any of the three OTA sessions, is recovering from left wrist surgery. Kaboly did not say if the Steelers third year linebacker will be able to take part in the mandatory mini-camp next week or not, but odds are that he won’t.

15 Months After Back Surgery, James Harrison Still Limited In OTA Sessions

Ah, don’t you just love the smell of overreaction and speculation in June? It must mean that training camp is getting even closer for the Pittsburgh Steelers. The team has been conducting their 2012 OTA sessions the last three weeks and it was reported today by Mark Kaboly of Pittsburgh Tribune-Review that outside linebacker James Harrison has worked out, but has not practiced since the first week of organized team activities.

While it is way too early to run to your closest bridge to prepare for your jump because the 34-year old linebacker is not playing football in shorts in early June, it Read more […]

New York Giants WR Hakeem Nicks’ Foot Surgery Gives Mike Wallace More Reason to Skip OTAs


Reports indicate Giants WR Hakeem Nicks’ foot surgery was successful. hat’s a good thing for Nicks and the Giants. And Steelers fans should be resigned to understanding why WR Mike Wallace is not participating in OTAs.

Nicks broke the fifth metatarsal in his right foot Thursday while running a route in the defending champs’ OTA session. He had surgery the following day and is expected to be inactive for the next 12 weeks (although Nicks’ agent, Peter Schaffer, told the New York Post they’re waiting on a post-surgery estimate).

If it is the 12 week originally anticipated for recovery, Nicks would be out for their entire training camp.

Injuries are often fluke things, occurring despite outstanding conditioning, proper technique and usual stress. While the odds of what happened to Nicks happening to any other receiver in the league are low, it’s still a big risk to take for a player like Wallace, who’s eyeing a long-term extension.

What if Nicks blew out his ACL? He’s likely out for the entire season. Since it would be considered a football injury, he would still accrue a season of eligibility, thus making him an unrestricted free agent in 2012, but his stock, coming off a severe knee injury, would likely drop off quite a bit.

The NFL is ultimately a business, and Nicks’ injury only gives Wallace more reason (not defending or supporting his agenda) to avoid team-issued workouts.

Marcus Gilbert almost fully healthy from shoulder surgery

Steelers offensive tackle Marcus Gilbert has almost recovered fully from surgery.  Gilbert had surgery on his should after the season ended.  Gilbert tweeted that was almost back to full speed.  That is good to hear.  Gilbert still has plenty of time to recover but the fact that he is almost back is great news.
Gilbert may have a more important role this season.  As a rookie he started 13 games at right tackle.  This season he may take over as the Left Tackle protecting Ben Roethlisberger’s blind side.  This is the position that Gilbert played in Florida.  Willie Colon will be back in his role at right tackle which is what will cause the move of Gilbert over to the left side.
Gilbert had a pretty good year for a rookie second round pick forced into the starting line up.  Guys who are great players in the NFL on the offensive line struggled in their first season.  Gilbert is already ahead of the curve.  He will have to work to be ready for the left side but he can handle it.
