Steelers NT Casey Hampton To Undergo ACL Surgery

*** Discuss this article and more at our Pittsburgh Steelers forum ***

Pittsburgh Steelers nose tackle Casey Hampton will undergo surgery to repair a torn ACL in his left knee, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Hampton suffered the injury in the Steelers’ 29-23 overtime loss to the Denver Broncos. The 34-year-old nose tackle has undergone two previous surgeries to repair a torn ACL and Friday’s procedure will be the second on that knee.

During his 11-year career, all with the Steelers, the 6-foot-1, 325-pound Hampton has 347 tackles and nine quarterbacks, earning two Super Bowl rings and five trips to the Pro Bowl. Hampton is entering the final year of his most recent contract, which calls for a $ 4.89 million base salary and $ 1 million workout bonus.

Releasing Hampton would clear $ 5.89 million in salary cap space for the Steelers, who are over $ 20 million over the cap for 2012.

Steelers NT Chris Hoke to undergo surgery on neck – career in doubt?

Pittsburgh Steelers nose tackle Chris Hoke will undergo season and possibly career-ending surgery on his neck, Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Hoke, 35, has been sidelined since suffering a “stinger” in an October 16 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Signed by the Steelers as an undrafted free agent out of BYU in 2001, Hoke did not appear in a game until 2004 and has totaled 83 tackles and two quarterback sacks in 114 games over the last seven-plus seasons.

The Steelers had re-signed Hoke to a one-year deal after the lockout ended, meaning Hoke will be an unrestricted free agent in 2012.
