    Exclamation Casey Hampton has elbow surgery

    Our friend Chuck Finder of CBS Sports Pittsburgh tweeted out this afternoon that Hampton mentioned he recently had elbow surgery:

    @CBSSportsNFLPIT: NT Casey Hampton offered a surprise Wed.: He got his left elbow "fixed." It's in cast. He said he expects to be ready for the season opener

    NT Casey Hampton looked like a tennis player Wednesday. Well, at 350-some pounds, his left elbow resembled one belonging to a suffering tennis player: encased in black tape and a cast. All Hampton admitted Wednesday was that he recently got it “fixed” – scoped, most likely – and still expects to return to the Steelers' lineup in the season opener Sept. 9 at Denver.

    So it's sort of like tennis elbow after all?

    “Age,” was how Hampton described the injury. “I just got my elbow fixed. [It'll] get healed up.”

    Given his ACL injury last January in the Denver playoff loss, will this elbow procedure slow his return? “I'll be out there playing soon, hopefully,” Hampton added. “That's my goal: being out there for the first game. And I'm not worried about the knee at all.”
    Apparently his elbow is more of a concern than his knee at this point. He is off the PUP now you have to wonder if activating him in week 1 is worth the risk at this point with McLendon doing so well.

    If he is active, it doesn't say much for Alameda Ta'amu's progress so far.
