Default DeCastro to practice on Wednesday

Guard David DeCastro, who is on injured reserve/designated for return, has been cleared to practice today.

The Steelers have 21 days from now to determine if DeCastro will be activated or placed on injured reserve.

Default David DeCastro to Practice Today

David DeCastro Returns to Practice

The Steelers may be running low on quarterbacks, but they got an offensive lineman back at practice on Wednesday.

Guard David DeCastro, their first-round pick in April, has been cleared to return to practice. DeCastro has been out since tearing his MCL and doing other damage to his right knee in one of Pittsburgh’s preseason games. He was placed on injured reserve with the designation to return after final cuts and has been eligible to return to practice for several weeks.

Now that he has returned to practice, the team has three weeks to decide whether or not to move him back to the active roster. Until they do, DeCastro does not count against the 53-man roster so there’s no need for a corresponding move. If they don’t, he’ll revert to injured reserve for the rest of the year.

DeCastro was immediately pencilled into the starting lineup when the team selected him and he’ll likely get a chance to win back the job if he’s healthy. Ramon Foster’s done a good job at right guard, though, so DeCastro probably won’t get it just for showing up in a uniform. At the very least, having him healthy would improve the options available should there be an injury down the line up front for the Steelers.

HELL YEA! Great news!

I like what Ramon Foster has done up until this point, but even though DD has not played all year, IF DD is 100% I say plug him in there! If DD is healthy HE IS AN INSTANT UPGRADE.

Nah, keep him as a backup, just in case. But let him rest to heal up more until next season.

if he's cleared to practice then the trainers must feel that he's fully healed. and if DeCastro is healthy, I would think it's a no-brainer to put him back on the active roster.

Putting him on the active roster is an absolute no-brainer. Playing him is a completely different story.
