The Steelers got some news about their opponent on Sunday, as today the Jets lost tight end Kellen Winslow for Sunday and the three games after that for violating the leagues substance abuse policy.
Kellen Winslow has been suspended without pay for four games for violating the NFL policy on performance enhancing substances.

Winslow had been excused from Friday’s practice for non-injury reasons, but now that seems pretty clear what those reasons were.
The Jets will use newly acquired TE Zach Sudfeld in place of Winslow. On the season, Winslow leads the team with 17 grabs, and has 169 yards and two scores.
