Yeah Coach was talking about that a bit ago in his press conference... Eason and Kirshke have done great when needing to this year though... A lot of guys were asking if they planned to move Woodley back to DE and it doesn't sound like it.

Yikes - That really hurts ..... didn't notice he got hurt, and I wouldn't expext the dumb CBS crew to point anything like that out. Hopefully someone can "Man -up" like 2004 when Big Casey went down and Hoke stepped in.
Smith may be the one of hardest player to replace in our D - great at the point of attack.
Get well soon Aaron !

i wonder which patriot cheap shotted him? like tomlin just said on sirius, you dont/cant replace him with 1 player.

tomlin said he was hurt for him on a personal level.

this sucks for a great steeler.

This is definitely not good news. Aaron is going to be sorely missed down the stretch and into the playoffs. Whether its Kirschke, Eason or both, they have some huge cleats to fill. On a brighter note, they have 16 years of NFL experience combined so it's not like we're putting an untested rook in there.

Here's to a speedy recovery Aaron!

I doubt a biceps tear was a cheap shot.

This is a devastating injury for the Steelers prospects for the rest of the year.

Hoping for a full recovery for 2008.

Smith went down early in the Denver game and missed the Bengals game the next week.

Injury bug definitely has bitten the D this year (Smith, Clark & Troy).
