Default Hampton and Starks Likely to Return

Quote:
The Pittsburgh Steelers likely will have nose tackle Casey Hampton and left tackle Max Starks back in the fold when they visit the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday, according to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.


Hampton, out with a tweaked hamstring, and Starks, nursing an ankle injury, didn't practice last week and were ruled out of Sunday's 19-11 victory over the Tennessee Titans.

Both players were injured in the Steelers' season-opening 15-9 victory over the Atlanta Falcons on Sept. 12.

Hampton, a five-time Pro Bowl pick in his 10th NFL season, started all 16 games for the Steelers in 2009, registering 43 total tackles and 2.5 sacks.

Starks, in his seventh season with the Steelers, has appeared in 89 games for the team since 2004.

If they aren't 100%, I don't see a problem with holding them out for one more game... especially this week.

i agree. Hoke is doing a great job and Tomlin's D line rotation seems to be effective. if Casey isn't ready, i hope we dont risk playing him. he'll be too important in the long run to risk an injury by playing sub 100%
