Does bringing Ramon Foster back make any sense? Can't we bring him in & move others around so we at least have depth?

I think Patrick Morris comes back. Feiler swings to Tackle. Morris provides back up @ OG and Center.

Denver would have to promote him to the roster to keep him.

Unless practice squad rules have changed.

How bad is Wisnewski's peck? Hopefully, we don't lose him as well, especially with DeCastro out for who knows how long.

I agree Feiler will move back to RT, Chuks stays as the swing tackle as there's Zero depth otherwise.
depending on wisniewski injury they might have to bring a vet as moving feiler plus losing wis while DeCastro is sidelined would mean that Dotson is the only guard left on the 53 roster. So sign a vet G + call up Derwin Gray.

And yes, if Morris isn't protected call him back

Just read it looks like Wisniewski has a torn pec. That should end his season as well. Our O-line looked like it would improve and have some depth this year. In one game, it has none of that. Hopefully, DeCastro comes back full strength very soon.

Non contact injuries. These guys are so big strong the the body parts just snap on their own. As usual it won't necessarily be about the best team. It will be about the best team able to overcome injuries. Not a good start for the Steelers. I would imagine it will be Dotson next man up. With the slap dick guy they kept on the roster. They will have to make a move for a guy who can snap. Chuks obviously with probably Feiler backing up at tackle. They will probably promote/ bring in guys who can play inside/ snap and use them as back ups with Feiler backing up at Tackle. Tackle is way harder to find.

1). Ramon Foster but it would have to be his decision and NOT a pressure signing provided he could get into shape. Could even talk to him and get him to professional trainer mode type train off roster till he was ready.

2) Definately inquire / sign Denver's practice squad guy for depth or starter

3). Comb the scrap heap and sign two VET playing time experience personal.


I GAURANTEE you the FO has all these scenario's covered and then some. I just hope they can find and act upon something higher quality if possible.

Wow, really surprised to see this on Wis:

I saw a quote from the team reporter Bob Labriola last night that said it is a torn pec. Likely done for the year. Now we need to add depth. Kicking Feiler back out to RT could be smart but we definitely need interior line depth with DeCastro possibly still out this week.

Not according to Tomlin, but who knows?

If it was Labriola the tweet has been deleted. I know for a fact I saw that he had a torn pec but it could have been another reporter I follow on Twitter. Doesn't mean the info was verified however.

Feel bad for the big man he was poised to have a great year worked really hard to get to the level he was at... that double block he made earlier in the game was awesome hate to see injuries impact a player’s career like that god speed in your return Big Man!!!
