The Pittsburgh Steelers have plans to work out cornerback Stanford Routt, the Houston Chronicle's John McClain reported. The session indicates the organization is preparing for life without Ike Taylor, who suffered lower-leg injury Sunday.

Taylor left the 23-20 win over the Baltimore Ravens early and did not return. NFL Network reported Taylor is expected to miss 3-6 weeks, which could include playoff games. He has 32 tackles and an interception in 2012.

Routt has not made much of an impression during his free-agent tour since being cut by the Kansas City Chiefs in early November. He's worked out for a number of teams, including the Detroit Lions and Houston Texans. Routt was released by the Oakland Raiders in February.

A Raiders signature pick..

At the 2005 NFL Scouting Combine, Routt ran the fastest 40 yard dash at a time of 4.27 seconds, the fastest time since the NFL used electronic timing.

he didn't play too well in KC, but with a good coach in lebeau and our great CB coach, I think he would also be a good fit.

Wow I hated our old Cb coach who's now in Arizona, what a faggot.

He would be a solid addition. Would he just be cut when Ike is back, or is this a sign that Ike's injury may be more serious?

We're fine at corner anyway, even with Ike out. We don't need to sign another corner right now.

Wait...Allen replaced Taylor on Sunday...I'm confused. Did our defense change after Ike left?

Cortez Allen, Lewis, Brown, DeMarcus Van Dyke would be the four corners...........I'm just saying if another injury happens Van Dyke would get playing time and its clear he isn't ready so another corner would be nice.....

i dont mind DVD, but i would like to let him work his way into the lineup next year...too crucial of a time of the season to let him play more than ST. i do think he can be somebody though

Give DVD a chance ... all the physical tools you could ask for ... lol give the man a chance first ... what's the point having him on the roster if your scared to give him a shot?

I wasn't knocking DVD and I do think the kid has potential but he is so raw and right now wouldn't be the best time to throw him out there if he had to play with this team fighting for the play-offs.....
