View Full Version : Haggans gets the start over Harrison...Steelers getting healthier

Steelers safetyMike Logan injured his hamstring in Sunday's win at Cincinnati and could be out 3-4 weeks, coach Bill Cowher said. He'll be replaced by fellow McKeesport High grad Russell Stuvaints, one of the Steelers' final cuts in September. To make room for Stuvaints, tight end Matt Kranchik was placed on waivers with the hope of being re-signed to the practice squad.

Linebacker Clark Haggans, out the previous three games due to a partially torn groin that required surgery, will start Monday night against the Ravens. He has 16 tackles and three sacks. He played his best game of the season against New England (10 tackles, a sack and two forced fumbles) before sustaining the injury in the game's waning moments. Cowher said James Harrison, who filled in capably for Haggans, will stay involved, and that Haggans will be eased back in.

The Steelers are relatively healthy, given only two players -- CB Ricardo Colclough (shoulder) and DE Kimo von Oelhoffen (shoulder) -- are listed as questionable. Eleven are probable, all of whom should play.

I hope Haggans doesn't miss a beat... he was playing great before the injury.

Very true. Haggans was doing great. It was a shame to see him go down. As you said hopefully this injury won't stop him from picking up where he left off.

haggans is so underrated its not even funny.. Playing opposite joey and around so much talent on our defense, he tends to get forgotten but the guy makes plays, no denying that..

its good to have our depth again at LB too !!!
