    Porter Activated

    Time for Joey to start kicking some butt! Glad he's back.

    LATROBE, Pa.: The Steelers announced today that outside linebacker Joey Porter has been activated from the team's Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list.

    Porter, an eight-year veteran, was placed on the team's PUP list on July 29, while recovering from offseason knee surgery. A three-time Pro Bowl selection, Porter led all NFL linebackers with 10.5 sacks in 2005.

    The Steelers did not have to make another roster move to activate Porter.

    WaaHoo !! Porter is a beast, Im glad he's back. Hopefully he takes it easy just getting back since we're still in preseason..he's notorious for jumping in full bore after an injury no matter what the type. We'll need him and his leadership on the field !

    I think you will see Hines step up with Porter. You need someone on each side of the ball. Porter has the D and it's Wards time for the O.

    Well Hines will definantly be one. Troy seems to be developing into one. but who knows it's only August. A lot can happen between now and September.

    Ward and Ben on the offense, along with Faneca who's very much respected around the league as well as the locker room. Defense is Porter, Polamalu, and Townsend. Everyone of them is going to be much needed and then some.
