Not official, but if it is that, it isn't too serious, he'll be back in a couple weeks.

The Pittsburgh Steelers saw three of its starters go down with injuries during Sunday’s 23-22 win at Miami.
Defensive end Aaron Smith suffered a torn triceps, and according to NFL Network’s Jason LaCanfora, Smith could be done for the season. LaCanfora’s tweet: “It doesn’t look good.”
Linebacker LaMarr Woodley left the game with a hamstring injury after being hurt late in the first half. Woodley told LaCanfora that the injury is just a minor tweak and he’s “a go for next week.”
Right tackle Flozell Adams was blocking on a pass when the Dolphins' Randy Starks landed on his left ankle. Adams limped off the field and was replaced by Jonathan Scott.

Even if its the best case scenario, we're going to have to reduce his minutes more when/if he comes back

If he has to get surgury his season will be over. Hopefully it isn't as bad as it sounds.

They are good but they are just old
If Smith is done it's time to move on or at least put him as a backup next year.
Hines looked old today too after that shot over the middle
I wonder if these guys are gonna hold up for 17 weeks plus playoffs

Sorry but sometimes you just got to let them go

If he plays next year, you can't put him on the bench if he is the better player.

Smith missed a majority of the games in 2007 and the Steelers had a number defense that year.

Hines looked old probably because he was playing injured after taking a low hit because the defender was too scared to hit him high (thanks Ray Anderson, you bitch).. Smith is our best defensive lineman, so what good would it do having him come off the bench if he is still on the team?

Depends if he needs surgery or not.

Surgery = IR
Non-surgery = POSSIBLY back this season.

They're going to do tests on him on Monday, so will know then or shortly after.

Tricep is a very big and powerful muscle on your arm. Especially on someone like Smith who has very large triceps.

It depends where he tore it and what part he tore. It could be anywhere from 2 weeks to the rest of the year with surgury. There wasn't a play that he was on the ground in extreme pain, so he probably didn't tear it off the bone or anything.
Players in the NFL who work with professional trainers know when to stop playing before the injury becomes serious, and that seems what Smith did.

Yeah - too early to tell, but the fact that he wasn't rolling around is a good sign I guess - but as you say, a major tear and he's done for the full term.

Did you see him on the sideline - he looked like an old man laboring after that hit.
I love Hines to death but I am a realist
He looks old

What good is Smith if he can't hold up for only half the season or whatever.
The NFL is a young man's game and the Steelers are getting old

Yeah, still not 100% confirmed that he will be done...but it certainly sounds bleak.

Smith apparently out for season
Sunday, October 24, 2010
By Ed Bouchette, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. -- Steelers defensive end Aaron Smith, who missed 11 games in 2009 with a torn rotator cuff, left today's game with a torn left triceps, and it appeared his season was over.
Coach Mike Tomlin revealed the extent of the injury, which occurred early in the third quarter, and said, "it is not good."
Linebacker James Farrior, the defensive captain, called the injury to Smith "devastating."
"It's heartbreaking to see a guy worked so hard to get back and have an injury like this," Farrior said. "I know he's devastated, I'm devastated and I'm sure everybody else is. To see a guy come out and just do everything right and get himself back to where he needs to be and have something like this happen is definitely frustrating."
Smith, 34, saw his 2007 season end with a torn bicep muscle in his right arm late in the year. He returned to have a Pro Bowl season in 2008.

If its torn he is done, just like a torn hammy needs surgery. Its a 6-9month recovery.

Typically they know before the mir as the bruising and swelling and of course the pai sort of dictates it.

Steelers need to search for some depth out there to sign and bring in. The good thing is, these super hot games should be behind us now. So at least they play in normal weather

Smith has been a good player for the Steelers over the years but just as i feared... to many old guys and injuries will happen more often. Smith has had 3 season ending injuries in 4 years. He makes way to much pay not to play!

Farrior said Smiths injury was "devastating" and "heartbreaking." So it doesn't look like it would be good.

Reggie White tore his hamstring and still played in the superbowl and got a record 3 sacks to help the Packers win. Depends on how bad it is :P

Smith may be able to come back. Too early to put him on IR. But he'll miss a ton of games.

We need younger guys like Hood to step up. That is why they drafted him #1. This NEEDS to be his time to shine.

StainlessStill
10-24-2010, 06:21 PM
Aaron Smith might be out for the season, AGAIN! That's a huge loss, something we might be able to come back from as far as our run D. That's not the kind of player to lose. Woodley injured his hamstring and Kiesel was ruled out before the game.

Smith's likely out for the season, and Keisel is banged up so we might have to see what's on the market for depth and rotation alone. Not sure if we'd go out and sign a veteran when crunching "dress" numbers.

My butthole is seriously puckered up with anger!:banging::banging::banging::banging::

10-24-2010, 07:23 PM
If Smith can come back sometime this year, we have to use him wisely and more sparingly until the playoffs. I'd be willing to have him play less, suffer the consequences to our run-d, perhaps even lose a game or two. We all saw how our run-d turned to crap when he left the game. Ziggy or Eason is just nowhere near Smith. Let's hope he's only out for a couple of weeks, but I don't think we're going to be so lucky.

D-LINE IS too old plain and simple
the d-line is gonna remind me of those old George Allen redskin teams of the 70's with all these aging stars who played well early but didnt have enough gas to get to the finish line.

The D-line holds up the blocks for the lb's to make plays.
otherwise we gonna have 5 yard gains before RB's get hit.

last year Troy being gone killed us
this year it could be the D-line
what's up with keisel?

not panicking just sayin

If there is a problem.....it will have more to do not being able to rotate anymore due to lack of healthy bodies. The whole line minus Hood is old and rotating worked well no matter who was in. Now trying to rely on everydown playing will wear on all of them.
Plus we have to worry about Farrior too. His best days are behind him. They need to get Fox more involved.

I love Smith; I hope this injury isn't as serious as people are speculating. However, if this is another season-ending injury, I think he should consider retiring. Not that I wouldn't like to see him back next year; it's just that with the injuries that he's sustained over the last few years, he could end up permanently injuring himself if he comes back.

We're talking about an arm injury not something that would prove your theory right if it was concussions and the brain affected.

C'mon guys, Aaron has been severely overlooked his whole career. Let's, as Steelers fan, not join in on how unappreciated he's been throughout his career.

This is a player that should have been taking a perennial flight over the Pacific each season to Hawaii, and I believe he's only been once. :doh:

Tonight's SNF game has a defensive lineman that is 38, so Aaron's got some years left in him.

Appreciate him, and look forward to next season when he's lining up once again on the field, as you Steelers' fan should be. :noidea:

I really hope we can get Smith back in time for the playoffs. Sticking him on IR would put a massive dent in our SB credentials. He is like an ogre. Really. 3 tackles yesterday - as a DE. One play was utterly magic when he stuffed the ball carrier for a loss having just thrust his guy to the ground and peeled off him. I've enjoyed watching him for so long - can't think of the D-line without him. Break out the rejuvenation creams!

lebeau starts playing a very soft defense when starters are out. get ready to see a lot of 3-man rushes. actually, i wouldn't call them rushes. basically the D-linemen just hold their ground. brees is going to have a easy day of the lebeau doesn't attack.

I'd love for Aaron to be back next year, but it would have to be with a massive pay cut. He has become unreliable health-wise and it doesn't make sense to pay him all that money if he can't even make it through half the season. We need to develop a younger player at that position and hope we uncover a diamond in the pile of coal. If he wants to come back next year but at his old salary, then it's time to say goodbye, thank him, and wish him well.

I agree with you. If we don't pressure the QB and give him ample time to find an open man, he'll find it and we're toast. See last year.
Soft defense rarely works for the Steelers.
