Forget ending the season - I hope this does not seriously impair his career
Well having both injured is really serious and can be career impairing, one on the other hand can be healed, maybe never 100% but pretty darn close.

Why do we always have the worst luck with the OL. It's like these guys are made of glass or purposely getting injured.

I also guess this means Heath will be staying at the line of scrimmage to protect Ben's ass...

A Sunday MRI revealed that Steelers first-round pick David DeCastro dislocated his right kneecap, tore his MCL, and suffered "some damage" to the patellar tendon in Saturday night's preseason game injury.
We have an extremely difficult time believing DeCastro stands any chance of returning this season, but the story from ESPN's Adam Schefter surprisingly doesn't rule it out. Per Schefter, DeCastro's ACL is intact, and the Steelers are "unsure if or when" DeCastro will be back. DeCastro is not a PUP candidate after opening camp healthy, and the NFL never did approve its one-injured-player rule that would've allowed one guy to be carried into the season without being part of the 53-man roster. Thus, DeCastro is likely headed to injured reserve.

So he didnt do anything to his ACL, but ****ed up a whole bunch of other shit

This could be really detrimental towards a guy like Decastro. A lot of his game is on his footwork, flexibility, and overall movement skills and completely blowing out his knee could really slow him down. Putting him on IR at this point is easily the best option. Let him rehab, and also get physically stronger and come back ready to go next year. Also Ramon Foster is serviceable, we'll be alright.

DeCastro tears MCL, possibly ACL

SteelersXtreme.com

The Pittsburgh Steelers drafted David DeCastro to help protect Ben Roethlisberger. But there was no one to protect DeCastro from injury as his rookie season possibly came to an end.

The rookie guard suffered a knee injury in the first quarter of the third preseason game Saturday night against the Buffalo Bills. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, David DeCastro dislocated his knee cap, tore his medial collateral ligament and suffered some damage to his patellar tendon, but his ACL was intact. A conflicting report however by NFL.com writer Ian Rapoport claims that DeCastro tore both his ACL and MCL, with no mention of his knee-cap or damage to his Patellar tendon.

The Steelers selected DeCastro in the first round of the 2012 draft to help shore up an offensive line that has struggled in recent years. DeCastro, who played guard at Stanford, was projected to go much higher in the draft but fell to the Steelers in the 24th spot.

wow...the newest report, though could have been even worse, is disastrous. A horrible and involved, very serious injury.
And the way Pouncey appears to be made of plastic and glass, i'd be shocked to see him make it through this season.
How frustrating. Its like we're not allowed to have a good offensive line to protect our QB....no matter who we draft or trade for.
