Default David DeCastro carted off field with right knee injury

David DeCastro carted off early for the Steelers

Posted by Josh Alper on August 25, 2012



The Steelers’ second drive of their game against the Bills was a costly one.

Running back Isaac Redman and right guard David DeCastro needed medical attention after consecutive plays in the first quarter at Buffalo. It looks like DeCastro has suffered the more serious injury.

DeCastro was locked up on Marcell Dareus during a pass attempt and Steelers tackle Marcus Gilbert fell across the back of his right leg. He was able to stand on one foot, but put no pressure on the right foot before being carted off to the locker room. Ramon Foster, who has already played several positions in the preseason, will take over for the first-round pick.

Redman appeared to injure his neck the play before DeCastro went down. He was on all fours on the field for a bit before walking to the sideline, where Redman looked to be okay as the medical staff moved on to work on DeCastro.

UPDATE: Redman returned to the game on the next Steelers possession. The Steelers say he had a stinger and confirmed that DeCastro will not return with what they’re calling a right knee injury.

I watched the injury and how he acted after, I doubt he will be back this year. They were moving hid knee and he was yelling in pain and banging on the ground.

I'm not the pesimistic type, but it looked bad. I saw it and he was in tons of pain and had to get carted off, just being realistic. Hopefully I'm wrong.

To me, his reaction while laying on the ground indicates the severity of it.
I'm gonna say some prayers; we NEED this kid THIS year.

IMO we should know during Tomlin's post-game presser if they are in a sharing mood

When Troy hurt his knee in the 2009 opener Tomlin said was not a season ending tear in the Tennessee post-game

Hope for teh best but it looked awful

Technically it wasn't. Troy came back too early and re-injured it.
