Default Timmons out with high ankle sprain - could miss opener

Steelers' Timmons may miss opener with ankle sprain
Tuesday, September 01, 2009
By Ed Bouchette, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Linebacker Lawrence Timmons has a high ankle sprain that has left his status for the Steelers' season opener Sept. 10 against Tennessee in doubt.

Timmons today walked around the team's training facility in a protective boot on his injured left foot. Coach Mike Tomlin has ruled him out of Thursday night's game and said his focus is to try to get him healthy for the opener.

High ankle sprains often have kept players sidelined for two-three weeks.

Timmons, Tomlin's first draft choice after he became head coach in 2007, has replaced Larry Foote as the starting mack inside linebacker. Last season, he served as the nickel linebacker on defense and also started two games at outside linebacker because of injuries.

Sept. 10 would be his first start in a real game at inside linebacker. Keyaron Fox will replace him Thursday night in Carolina and would start if Timmons is unable to play in the opener.

This doesn't sound like "nothing" to me.

There are starters, and then there are starters in waiting.

Fox, you need to be a starter in waiting.

Doh.

All the worrying about inside LB depth, and it comes up even before the first game.

I'm a little less nervous about it since Fox seems like he's stepped up. But still ... man, not a good way to start the season on that front.

2-3 weeks is wishfull thinking for a high ankle sprain if you ask me. More like 4-6 weeks with lingering effects for a speed guy like him.

Remember Kendrell Bell. (Of course - we don't know how bad it is)

I think we will be fine with Fox filling in for Timmons, he got us an INT last year and he hits like a ton of bricks so we will be OK. We'll just "LOCK AND LOAD"!!!

That is a good point. and Kendrell tried to come back too quickly. Timmons needs to take all the time he needs. If it is 6 weeks, so be it.
