Default Sweed, Warren done for year

Sweed, Warren out for season

The Steelers have two roster spots to fill after placing long snapper Greg Warren on injured reserve and wide receiver Limas Sweed on the reserve/non-football illness list.

Both are out for the rest of the season.

Warren had to be carried off the field Sunday after Jeff Reed kicked the extra point that gave the Steelers a 37-36 win over the Green Bat Packers. He appeared to have torn the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in his right knee.

Sweed, who caught just one pass for five yards this season, didn't dress for the game against the Packers because of the illness.

What "illness?" Dropitus?

Sweed out for season for reasons unknown

PITTSBURGH - The Steelers announced today that long snapper Greg Warren and wide receiver Limas Sweed will miss the remainder of the season.

Warren, a fifth-year pro, has been placed on the Reserve/Injured list with a right knee injury after tearing his anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) on the final play of Sunday’s game against the Green Bay Packers.

He signed a three-year, $2.3 million contract with the Steelers in 2008.

Second-year wide receiver Sweed has been placed on the Reserve/Non-Football Illness list. No further information has been released by the team, but sources have said he has been home sick and not happy with his play this season.

The Steelers will add two players to complete their 53-man roster prior to Sunday’s 1 p.m. regular season home finale against the Baltimore Ravens.

Jared Retkofsky , who replaced Warren last season, and was in camp this summer could be heading back to Pittsburgh according to one league source. He is currently playing in the United Football League with the New York Sentinals. He was the Steelers long snapper in Super Bowl XLIII.

In Sweed's case I suspect that the "illness" is not physical. He is turning into one of the worst high round busts we had in a long time.

maybe he needed surgery to remove the splinters from his ass.

hopefully mcdonald is on speed dial (or maybe we're just clearing room for some more special teams contributors).

Okay, does that mean he is at home and ill, or "Homesick?" If it's the latter then someone needs to go smack him and tell him man the eff up.

You think the men and women in the desert aren't a little "homesick" you little bitch?

Actually, I think the same thing happened to him that happened to Frank Summers.


You-- ARE SICK. Now go home. See you in the offseason workouts.
