This from Gerry Dulac at the P-G

Gerry Dulac ‏@gerrydulac

Mike Tomlin called DeCastro's injury "potentially severe." I'm told it's prob ACL but won't know till tomorrow.

Well at least Ben is in much better shape this year, as he will be running a lot more.

Someday someone will call out this Oline. Hopefully its this year.

No kidding. I was checking the score while watching a film because the game wasn't on locally and I saw the final score and thought good but then I look over the play by play and see that DD was taken off the field in a cart. It sucks big time to have something like this when it finally looked like our O-Line could emerge as a strong part of the team.

CRAP. What did the Steelers do to p i $ $ off the football gods? No one else gets injuries on their offensive lines like this team. I hope DeCastro is not as bad off as it looked but I am not holding my breath. I thought we had it made at the Guard position this year.

Looks like it's both ACL and MCL, chaps. :(

Pittsburgh Steelers rookie guard David DeCastro suffered injuries to his anterior cruciate and medial collateral ligaments and will be out awhile, a source with knowledge of the situation told NFL.com and NFL Network.

DeCastro was carted off the field with what coach Mike Tomlin later called a "potentially severe" right knee injury during the first quarter of Saturday night's 38-7 preseason victory against the Buffalo Bills.

DeCastro, the Steelers' first-round draft pick, didn't return to the game, and Tomlin said afterward that the rookie would undergo an MRI to determine the severity of the injury.


On the Steelers' second drive of the game, DeCastro was tangled up with Bills defensive tackle Marcell Dareus on a pass play when Pittsburgh tackle Marcus Gilbert landed on the back of DeCastro's right leg.

Trainers helped DeCastro to one foot before he was carted off the Ralph Wilson Stadium FieldTurf, which quarterback Ben Roethlisberger blamed for the rookie's injury.

"Well I just saw him, (and his) spirits are high," Roethlisberger told NFL.com and NFL Network's Kimberly Jones at halftime. "We don't obviously know -- well, I don't know what the official word is. This is a great field, but it's FieldTurf, and it's just killing guys because they can't get their feet out of the ground, and it's just another reason we should get rid of FieldTurf."

Coach Mike Tomlin and the Steelers used April's draft to rebuild an offensive line that caused problems for Roethlisberger last season. After selecting DeCastro out of Stanford with the No. 24 overall draft pick, the team used its second-round choice on offensive tackle Mike Adams from Ohio State. Both have gotten off to a slow start this preseason.

UPDATE: Steelers defensive end Brett Keisel also left the game with what Tomlin described afterward as a mild high ankle sprain.
