    DeCastro eligible to practice as of October 19th 2012

    The highly touted rookie is already eligible to start practicing with the team .The new IR rule states that once he starts practicing the Steelers have 3 weeks to activate him or he returns to IR for the remainder of the season. Let's hope he's ready to go soon so him and pouncey can make magic on the right side.

    What's his status? I know he has no limp or brace, but is there a timeline as far as him returning to practice and contributing?
    Either way, it's crazy to hear that he could be back on the field by late November considering how his injury looked.

    He isn't eligible to practice until next week. After week 8. He's not eligible right now.

    No. 1 pick DeCastro eligible to return to practice next week and play for #Steelers against #Giants. But will he? sulia.com/my_thoughts/a5…

    He can practice after six weeks but can't play until after week 8.

    More concerned with his actual health status then his eligibility. I only want him practicing IF he's healthy.
    The Steeler way...is the only way.

    I'd be wary of playing him till I know he's 100%. He's going to be out of shape,physically weak from the time off and a rookie to boot. A great recipe to get hurt again. Plus, you never know when the assasin Gilbert will strike again and take another teamate out.
