Saw on a twitter just about 10 minutes ago that Sepulveda was wearing a brace?

Can anyone confirm this?

Or is this just bogus junk being twittered for amusement?

Anyone?

He very well might be coming off of a torn ACL on his plant knee.

I would bet your right, and I wouldn't be shocked if he continues to wear it for the majority of the season for a precaution...

He is wearing the brace in the pictures posted on Steelers.com

He just had a serious injury to his knee, it's all precaution.

That's yet to be seen, and I'm not saying one way or the other what they'll do. It's just that a big part of me WANTS them in the playoffs so we can send them home.

Hell YEAH! :naughty: I feel a little weird about my crush on him as my son is older than DSep, but hey - a little cougar growwwwl once in a while doesn't hurt. :chuckle:

He was participating in the exercise drills and getting both legs up there pretty high, so I think it's safe to assume that he's just fine. He may have worn a brace the day before or yesterday, but he wasn't wearing a brace on that field on Wednesday. One of the FA's they brought in to work out, Dirk Johnson, was taking most of the snaps that day.

You must have been watching the punter who is in trying out - Dirk Johnson (though I don't recall him wearing a brace either). The picture I took below clearly shows that DSep, who is standing on the 17 YL, is NOT wearing a brace. (It was raining at the time, so please excuse the quality, though one can plainly see he is not wearing a brace on his knee).

It may be that he is using it some, trying to figure out if it is helping him or not... if he needs it or not.

Quite possibly, but I had my baby blues on him quite a bit on Wednesday and he wasn't wearing it. I'd know. :chuckle:

Steelers' Sepulveda says leg better than ever
Saturday, August 08, 2009
The Associated Press
Peter Diana/Post-Gazette
Steelers punter Daniel Sepulveda, "This is the best I have punted in my life."

The Steelers won the Super Bowl last year despite one of the worst punting games in the NFL. But with highly touted Daniel Sepulveda recovered from ACL surgery, things are looking up.

Way up.

Sepulveda, who enjoyed a strong rookie season in 2007 before missing all of last year, is booming the ball in practice.

So much so that the Steelers feel their punting game will again be an important weapon in controlling field position.

"We're looking forward to the same things we saw from him when he was a rookie," Steelers special teams coach Bob Ligashesky said Friday. "He provides us with field position and helps us in the coverage game as a punt unit. A punter like him allows you to do so much more with your coverage teams and be so much better with his hang time and direction."

A former two-time Ray Guy Award winner as the nation's best college punter and a player the Steelers traded up to draft in the fourth round two years ago, Sepulveda is a welcome re-addition to the reigning Super Bowl champions.

The Steelers ranked ninth in the NFL in net punting average during Sepulveda's rookie 2007 season at 37.9 yards per punt, but they lost him for the season on the second day of training camp in 2008.

Pittsburgh tried to get by with Mitch Berger and Paul Ernster, but fell to 30th in the league in yards per punt (39.8) and 25th in net average (35.6).

Sepulveda's absence was noticeable as the team went back-and-forth between Berger and Ernster and had a handful of embarrassingly short and shanked kicks.

"People talk about that, but we still won the Super Bowl," Sepulveda said. "I put the team in a bind and I felt bad for that. We were a week from the first game, and the punter goes down and I was the only one in camp, so I felt bad for that and for giving (kicker Jeff Reed) a new holder. He handled that as a professional, and Mitch and Paul both came in and got the job done.

"You can say whatever you want, but we ended up winning the Super Bowl. They did what I couldn't do."

Sepulveda had suffered a torn ACL in college and aggravated the injury not long after. He had considered surgery to correct the problem, and finally could no longer avoid it last summer.

Watching his team win the Super Bowl without him was difficult, Sepulveda said, but he learned from an additional year of being immersed in the NFL lifestyle.

Now he's said he's truly at 100 percent physically for the first time in years.

"I would say I'm a better kicker now, for sure," Sepulveda said. "This is the best I have punted in my life."

"He's got a strong leg and great accuracy with his kicks," said Anthony Madison, the team's leading special teams tackler last season. "As a coverage guy, you can't be anything but excited to have a guy like that. He's good for the team, period."

Awesome news!
Some may disagree (O Line) but I thought the punting game was our biggest weakness last season. It cost us at least the Giants game and who knows how many others....

Yep, I disagree, but I understand what you are saying. You really can't point to one play on the O line and say, "that lost us the game." But you can with ST's.

I just think if our O line was better, our ST's wouldn't have been in that situation.

Nothing wrong with going younger as long as they're of legal age. :chuckle:
if you had done that, i hope that you would give XT your camera, bc we all would want to see a picture of that :rofl:....but my question would be??? would you go for the legs first ????:wink02:
you are absolutely right, there IS nothing wrong with going younger as long as they are legal...:chuckle:

i say lets let HTG find out if his legs are better. i am pretty sure she would up for the challenge...lol.

i am glad he is back, our STs were awful last year, but at least we still won the super bowl!!!! so with a healthy Sepulveda, we should be much better.
