Steelers Safety Damontae Kazee Suspended 3 Games While On Injured Reserve

The Pittsburgh Steelers received another blow to their defense today. Safety Damontae Kazee who would be eligible to return from injured reserve on October 3 now won’t be eligible to return until October 10.

According to ESPN reporter Brooke Pryor, Kazee will be allowed to serve his suspension while he’s on injured reserve. He won’t need to serve it after he comes off injured reserve.

While the suspension is hardly good news, the fact that he can serve it whole on injured reserve is a relief for most fans.

Kazee had a strong preseason after signing with the Steelers hours after the 2022 NFL draft concluded. It was believed Kazee would have a regular role in the starting defense even with Terrell Edmunds starting at safety over him.

The only issue with Kazee being suspended during his injured reserve stint is that he won’t be eligible to practice with the team until much later than he would’ve been able to. If he is healthy by October 10 he will have 6 days to get ready for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The Steelers have always been a central part of my life. I grew up listening to WDVE tapes recorded off of the radio of Steelers fight songs, and wearing Steelers jerseys as a fashion statement. I joined the SteelerNation.com message board when I was 12, and this site has been a big part of my life ever since. I’ve found life long friends and met some of the best people on earth through this site. In 2015, I was able to help revive the site and develop a news website and all of our social media platforms. I can’t wait to continue to grow with all of you. Go Steelers!
