Default Farrior finds himself sidelined in favor of Foote

Farrior finds himself sidelined in favor of Foote
Monday, September 12, 2011

BALTIMORE -- Steelers defensive captain James Farrior spent time in unfamiliar territory Sunday: the sidelines.

Larry Foote replaced Farrior at left inside linebacker for three series in the first half of the Steelers' 35-7 loss to the Ravens.

Coach Mike Tomlin said that was by design -- not because of an injury to Farrior, who hasn't missed a game since 2005.

"Larry had a good preseason," Tomlin said. "We would like to play both men, so we made a commitment early on that both men were going to play, and we stood up to that."

The 36-year-old Farrior said, "I'm healthy. Everything's fine," when asked if sharing time with Foote had anything to do with an injury.
Look at these eyebrows. These are attack eyebrows! They could take off bottle caps!
