DeCastro And Wheaton Cleared To Practice; Update On Steelers Injuries

David DeCastro

While last week may have been the worst game many fans have seen in Steelers history – it’s time to start looking ahead at week 10 and the Buffalo Bills at Heinz Field.

The Steelers are going to get some players back this week, including both David DeCastro and Markus Wheaton, as reports both have been cleared to start practicing this week.

Getting DeCastro back from his ankle injury will be very important, as we all know that the Steelers need all the help they can get on the offensive line.

As for Wheaton, he’s been out for awhile, missing four games after having a severe finger injury and a subsequent surgery.

Other injury news includes a couple players that will likely be listed as questionable and will be watched during the week.

Those players include Vince Williams, Ike Taylor, and Marcus Gilbert.

Cameron Heyward (knee contusion), Fernando Velasco (thigh), and Kelvin Beachum (hip flexor) may also be limited in practice leading up to playing the Bills.

  • Plz insert brown ,Wheaton ,cotchery. Plz note. Wheaton and brown only for use with end around. Oh ya plz teach corners and safeties not to key on eye movement rather cover assigned player. Mental lapses from these senior players r killing us. Oh and could I order a couple of decent tackles on the side. U know the kind that can establish a run game and protect our franchise qb for the final years of his career. Am I asking too much??
