Kirschke Has Calf Tear

Scott Brown is reporting that veteran defensive end Travis Kirschke has a tear in his calf and it could sideline for the Denver game, if not longer. Kirschke reportedly still has swelling in the lower leg that he hurt against the Vikings in week 7. If Kirschke can not go on Monday night, Nick Eason will get the start at left defensive end and rookie Ziggy Hood would back him up. Ra\’Shon Harris would also likely be active for the game as well for depth.

I am, I'm me. 40 something, retired and a life long Steelers fan.
