Worst of all, it took place in the final minutes of the teams 38-13 win. “It’s unfortunate, but that’s how it goes, man, that’s our story this year,” Mike Tomlin said. “So somebody will step up and play, hopefully.”
Hoke, who is the backup to Casey Hampton, has been a great backup over the years, and is the team’s only true nose tackle behind Hampton.He
He has appeared in 96 games with the Steelers during his career, notching 45 total tackles, two sacks and a fumble recovery.
