Hey, as long as Campbell is alright. But how can Cook forget about Luis Castillo, that's a reason we lost some games in 2005

Ever get the feeling if someone tells Cook it is raining outside that his response is there is going to be a catastrophic flood someday?

Cook has been around too long and his columns usually now consist of predicting future disasters (Parker is going to get hurt if he plays in preseason/Ben will get hurt someday so don't boo when it happens) rather than any reporting/insights as to what is going on.

i usually enjoy all steelers articles. whether they are positive or negative, atleast they are being talked about.

what i dont like is some writer constantly rubbing my nose in a hypothetical scenario, that may not even happen.

guaranteeing ben is going to blow out his knee, and hoping it is after he signs his big contract as opposed to before is about as shoddy a job as i can think of.

i'll be lining my bird cage with this article.

'Skins Campbell OK after leaving hurt
Associated Press, Updated 12 hours ago STORY TOOLS:


LANDOVER, Md. (AP) - Jason Campbell limped down the hallway outside the Washington Redskins' locker room, favoring his bruised left knee and feeling a bit lucky. Inside, Marcus Washington wore a blue sling on his dislocated right elbow and tried to keep smiling. Out of sight was Mike Espy, out for the season with a ruptured kneecap.

As is often the case, injuries overshadowed results in an exhibition game. The Pittsburgh Steelers beat the Redskins 12-10 in a game that included five field goals, one touchdown, and three scary moments.
Campbell was hit flush on the knee in the first quarter by Steelers defensive end Brett Keisel, who was assessed with a personal foul for a low hit on a quarterback in the pocket. Campbell grabbed his knee in pain and remained on the field for a couple of minutes before gingerly limping to the sideline. X-rays revealed only a bruise — and no serious ligament damage that could ruin his season.

"The scary thing about it, when he hit me, it just felt awkward," Campbell said. "It felt weak, but after they started stretching and pulling on it a little bit, the strength got back into it. Right now it's just stiff and sore, so I expect a full recovery soon."

Campbell isn't sure how soon, but he should recover in time for the regular season. Washington was hoping the same thing as he kept usual sunny disposition while talking about his elbow, which popped out of place when it got caught between two helmets during a tackle.

"They're thinking a couple of weeks," said Washington, one of the defense's emotional leaders. "They'll be some setbacks every now and then. I'm glad I didn't hurt anything, like, major."

Espy, the favorite to make the roster as the No. 5 receiver, had his knee give out while running a pass route in the third quarter. He has a ruptured patella tendon.

I know these things keep happening to our defensive players, but I dont really think that there is any of them on purpose. I know that there is probably alot of things that do happen on purpose that we dont see, but I honestly hope that this was not on purpose..

#1....it's a preseason game. Why would anyone purposely "take out" another player?

#2....even if it was on purpose, what's the point?? The 'Skins aren't even in our division (see above)

Not quite as monumental as Kimo's hit on Palmer, but just as accidental.

Thanks, CS85. I knew there had to be 1 or 2 leveled headed Bengal fans out there.
