Default larry foote misses practice with sore ankle

http://pit.scout.com/2/1218591.html

Quote:
PITTSBURGH – Larry Foote missed Wednesday’s practice with a sore ankle, and the thinking around the Steelers’ locker room is that Foote was merely given a day off so that his backup could receive much-needed time at the buck linebacker position.
That’s the thinking, but it might also be a prayer.

Foote’s backup is Brandon Johnson, who’s not only new to the team, he’s new to the position as well as the entire 3-4 scheme.

Johnson played outside linebacker behind Elvis Dumervil at the University of Louisville, and then he played weak-side outside linebacker with the Arizona Cardinals and Cincinnati Bengals for six NFL seasons.

Because of his skill on special teams, he was signed by the Steelers in June and they listed the 6-5, 245-pounder as an outside linebacker. But when Stevenson Sylvester got hurt at training camp, Johnson received some time at inside linebacker. And when the Steelers’ other backup inside linebacker, Sean Spence, was injured in the final preseason game, Johnson became the team’s only backup inside linebacker.

So if Foote for some reason can’t play Sunday, Johnson becomes the defensive signal-caller as the buck linebacker in his very first game with the Steelers.

“It’s tough learning three positions,” Johnson said...
WAY off topic but sean lee is looking like a pro bowler for dallas tonight vs giants.

anyone got james farriors number? think he is still on honeymoon? in denver perhaps? (if i dont laugh, i'll cry, although im sure foote is fine)

We may end up being stuck doing the 4-3 defense at this rate. That would put Hood and Heyward on the field at the same time. I know that will never happen but it could be interesting.

Wouldn't it make more sense to have timmons call the plays?

Sean Lee had 12 tackles and a key forced fumble in last night's game against the Giants, and to think we had a first round grade on him but still picked Jason Worilds instead.

Of course, and that's who will be calling the plays. Seems like there is a SLIM chance that Johnson will need to start, but they won't give him the responsibility of calling the plays on top of that just because he's playing that position.

I not at all in favor of Keisel playing LB, but I will say that when he's been sent into coverage or had to play a play or two at LB, he's done damn well.
