    Jeff Reed injures calf in Jags game..**Update 10/8 not expected to miss any games

    Just heard this a few minutes ago on Sportsbeat that Reed strained his calf last night making a tackle on special teams late in the game last night. It's why Mitch Berger came out and did the kickoff after the TD to Hines that gave the Steelers the lead. One reporter asked Jeff Reed how does your calf feel and he said it's pretty bad. Right now it looks as if Reed depending how bad this injury is he could miss about a month or so. So it looks as if the Steelers are going to possibly shopping for a kicker here to fill in for Jeff Reed assuming he is out for a certain period of time. This is certainly not good news at all seeing how clutch and automatic Reed has been for the Steelers. Who is out there that would be able to fill the void??

    How about Gary Anderson?? I know him and Mitch Berger worked together in Minnesota for a very long time and were together that whole 1998 season where Anderson didnt have one single miss the entire season until the NFC Title game. I dont know how old Gary is but who knows maybe he still has some leg left in him...

    Wow that sucks!

    I was wondering why he was on the side lines and Berger was kicking.

    Also, explains why they still went for the 2 pt conversion even after getting a flag.

    Berger sucks. We'd be better off giving some free agent a chance.

    "He's running around there, running his mouth, doing all that, but if you watch him on film and really look, where was Ray Lewis? He was nowhere to be found. I could have tackled the water boy and had as many tackles as him. He didn't do nothing today. He's all mouth. When you talk like that, that's what happens: You get hit in the mouth. He's over there crying now, thinking about what went wrong. You got your *** whipped, that's what." ~ Peazy

    Jeff "Skippy" Reed is money in the bank when it comes to field goal kicking...Plus he kicks in the toughest stadium in the NFL...This is a huge blow and I hope he isn't out to long...No matter who the Steelers sign he won't be as good as Reed....Huge loss if he is out a month or longer...

    Couldn't agree more bro, Reed being out for even a game is a HUGE loss. Having him in there is pretty much an automatic 3 points from any distance he tries. When it rains it pours, fortunately we're headed into a bye and that gives him 2 weeks to rest now and perhaps he can be back after the cincy game.

    It will be a huge loss if he is out for any amount of time. Let's hope it's not as bad a calf strain injury as the one Brett Kiesel got that has kept him now for almost a month. At this point if Reed would miss the Bengals game and return for the Giants game in about 3 weeks time I would be perfectly fine with it. I'm sure we will get more information about this as the week goes on and hopefully it wont be as bad as it sounds right now. It is going to be a huge huge concern should Reed miss the games against the Giants and Redskins seeing that both of those games are most likely going to be very close hard fought games that could very well end up coming down to a game winning FG type situation.
