Steelers Post Game Injury Report: David DeCastro And Guy Whimper Will Likely Need MRI’s

Following the 21-18 loss to the Oakland Raiders, Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin met the media and went over the injuries suffered in the game.

“Ramon Foster sustained a concussion there early on and was unable to return,” started Tomlin. “Guy Whimper had a left knee injury that needs to be and will be evaluated. David DeCastro has a right ankle injury that needs to be and will be evaluated. Other than that, I am sure there are bumps and bruises associated with playing.”

Foster left the game early in the first half with a concussion and was replaced by Whimper, who left early in the second half with his left knee injury. After DeCastro left the game a short time later, left tackle Kelvin Beachum took over at left guard and Cody Wallace, who had initially replaced Whimper at left guard, flipped over to DeCastro’s right guard position. Mike Adams then took over at left tackle for Beachum.

Tomlin stated later in his press conference that he is sure that both Whimper and DeCastro will need MRI’s done to determine the extent of their injuries.

The steelers offensive line is now in complete shambles once again. They do have Chris Hubbard and Joe Long on their practice squad and one or both might need to be promoted to the 53 man roster next week depending on the seriousness of the injuries suffered by DeCastro and Whimper.

    When it rains it pours. The hits just keep on coming. Out of the frying pan and into the fire. There seems to be no end to the O Line injuries,

  • Douglas Andrews

    Man these O Line injuries year after year are unbelievable!

  • Ahmad

    This is a disaster! We can’t catch a break!

  • Chris92021

    We just can’t catch a break. And to think, DeCastro was really rounding into form too.

  • Richard Edlin

    We can’t catch a break. Or Pryor.

    Good thing we dressed 8 O-Linemen as we needed all of them! Just hope DeCastro is ok!

  • Shannon Stephenson

    How many teams lose a OL every game! This is insane!

  • Jefferson_St_Joe

    I hope there are no more IRs just for the fact that it means more cap use.

  • Holland Henderson

    Disaster. Maybe we need to look at the conditioning program

  • Holland Henderson

    I dont get it. I dont get anything about the 2013 steelers. I give up.

  • Virdin Barzey

    Can someone please explain to me why our o-line is the one group on this team that consistently goes down to injury?

  • Fire.Mike.Tomlin

    There will be no questioning of the regime! The standard is the standard!

  • steeltown

    …good grief

    To make things a little clearer about the o-line injuries. These are the same guys that were always getting injured last year. Nothing has changed except the Steelers have declared themselves better and younger in the beginning of the year. I think the more interesting subject is the Steelers getting outcoached by the Raiders.I told everyone it wouldn’t take Haley long to revert back to his stubborn self, the play calling was stupid. We are 3 scores down and he is chewing up 10 minutes of the game clock on one possession. I’m really a huge Steeler fan but i don’t get this team at all. We really wasted tons of time with poor clock management.
