Is Kemoeatu Injured? Did Not Practice Thursday
ESPN 1250 reporter, Ken Laird, tweeted that a source has informed him that Steelers starting left guard Chris Kemoeatu went to the rehab facility today before practice. Kemoeatu was not listed on the Wednesday injury report and practiced fully. There was no mention of any injury post practice and we will wait and see if he indeed practices fully today or is added to the injury report. If Kemoeatu were some how not able to play Sunday, the likeliest candidate to take his place at left guard would be reserve interior lineman Doug Legursky or second year lineman Ramon Foster. More as we get it. UPDATE: Ken Laird has since tweeted that Kemoeatu did not participate in practice today. Laird now reports it was an ankle tweak and that Kemo sat out as a precaution and expects to play on Sunday. Kemoeatu says he stepped on the foot or heel of left tackle Max Starks in practice.
Injury now being termed a sprained foot on the Thursday injury report.
