    Injury updates heading into Bills game

    Steelers defensive end Brett Keisel is expected to play this weekend at Buffalo after missing all but a few plays of the last five games with a sore hamstring, coach Mike Tomlin said Tuesday.

    Rookie wide receiver Antonio Brown (swollen knee) will be limited in practice and might not play Sunday for the Steelers. Tight end Matt Spaeth's status is uncertain because of a concussion he sustained during last Sunday's game against the Oakland Raiders.

    Safety Will Allen has been cleared to practice after sitting out two games with a concussion. Safety Troy Polamalu might be limited again in practice because of an Achilles' injury, as he was last Sunday, but Tomlin said he expects his defensive star to play.

    Ramon Foster remains at right guard after being promoted ahead of Trai Essex and Doug Legursky before the 35-3 victory over the Raiders.

    Keisel will help us a lot more rotation and fresher players, def will help with getting a good Defensive push that allows or LB's to do work

    I hope he is 100% - I really don't want them to stress him on the field and aggravate that hammy again. We'll need him in December and January!
    However much you think you know about football, rest assured that Skip Bayless knows more!

    my thoughts exactly.
    "Today, I'm officially retiring a Pittsburgh Steeler. And as much as I will miss football, my teammates, coaches and everything about the game, I don't want to play it in any other uniform. The black and gold runs deep in me, and I will remain a Steeler for life."--Hines Ward

    It seems to me Tomlin has something against Brown,the guy proved he belongs on the field yet MT looks for reasons to sit him.

    Brett has been trying to come back for 3 weeks now. I hope he's actually ready and won't aggravate that hamstring and be out longer. This is the stretch run coming up, we need everybody available and healthy as possible.

    If it were me I'd rather sit him one more week and then come back in December, just to be safe.

    Glad to hear it. Hopefully the Steelers avoid the "trap game" cliche and stomp on the Bills like they should.

    For the first time in many years I'm actually excited what our O-Line could become....
    (If everyone was healthy anyways)

    Starks, Kemo, Pouncey, Colon, Adams would be a beastly line. imo
