    Somewhat of a clarification -

    Pittsburgh Steelers rookie guard David DeCastro suffered injuries to his anterior cruciate and medial collateral ligaments in Saturday night's preseason game and will be out awhile, a source with knowledge of the situation told NFL.com and NFL Network.

    DeCastro was carted off the field with what Steelers coach Mike Tomlin later called a "potentially severe" right knee injury during the first quarter of a 38-7 victory over the Buffalo Bills.
    DeCastro, the Steelers' first-round draft pick, didn't return to the game, and Tomlin said afterward that the rookie would undergo an MRI to determine the severity of the injury.

    On the Steelers' second drive of the game, DeCastro was tangled up with Bills defensive tackle Marcell Dareus on a pass play when Pittsburgh tackle Marcus Gilbert landed on the back of DeCastro's right leg.

    Trainers helped DeCastro to one foot before he was carted off the Ralph Wilson Stadium FieldTurf, which quarterback Ben Roethlisberger blamed for the rookie's injury.

    "Well, I just saw him, (and his) spirits are high," Roethlisberger told NFL.com and NFL Network's Kimberly Jones at halftime. "We don't obviously know -- well, I don't know what the official word is. This is a great field, but it's FieldTurf, and it's just killing guys because they can't get their feet out of the ground, and it's just another reason we should get rid of FieldTurf."

    the Mcl injury often doesn't require surgury unless there is continued instability a grade 1 mcl tear take approx 2 to 4 weeks to heal a grade 4 takes ten months this injury is the reason he couldn't bear weight on his leg you can tear an acl and walk off the field the mcl is weight bearing ligament as an acl is more of a stability ligament


    Several people in the locker room saw DeCastro walking with a limp without crutches this is agood sign

    I'm betting he is done for most, if not the entire season. Hopefully I'll wake up tomorrow and read news that the MRI shows it isn't as bad as everybody thinks and the article on NFL.com is wrong......ughhhhh why did it have to happen to our 1st round draft pick, why not some scrub backup.

    this is start of a bust career :S.

    Does badly in training camp, then out for the first season.

    I was never fond of him.

    Just draft a guard again next years draft.

    Time to trade Mike Wallace for some O-LINE.

    I wake up to this news??? Makes me sick!
    "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
