We're going to miss Ike against AJ Green. Ike pretty much blankets that dude and takes him away.

Last season, when Ike went out, during the Colts game, Allen SMOTHERED Reggie Wayne.

I think that the Steelers will be fine... for this season... and many more to come.

What's the source for this? This is a huge loss.

Ike Taylor has fibula injury, could be significant

Posted by Mike Florio on December 2, 2012



The Steelers’ win over the Ravens may have come at a significant price.

Cornerback Ike Taylor, we’re told, has a fibula injury. He’ll have an MRI on Monday.

Per a source with knowledge of the situation, there is concern that the injury is significant.

Taylor has been durable over the years; he hasn’t missed a game since 2004. For his career, he has missed only three games.

UPDATE 9:15 p.m. ET: The source says that the preliminary assessment is that Taylor will miss 2-6 weeks.

Damn! Allen did look good (even the penalty and TD, he was right there). Hope Ike is back in a couple of weeks!

Loved this quote from Keenan Lewis:

Quote:
It was baptism under fire for Allen. But with Polamalu, Taylor and Lewis encouraging him throughout, he settled in.

“I told them to be calm and just play,” Lewis said. “We have one of the best receiving corps in the league, so going up against those guys every day, then coming out here was like practice.”

Uh, a hair away can be pretty far when it is Troy!

Cortez Allen has been ready for this all season. He has some raw talent that took a while to develop, but he is up for it. Ike has been solid and uninjured for many seasons so it was probably going to happen at some point. We hope he gets better, but he won't need to return before he is truly ready.
