Steelers Draft Picks Zumwalt, Richardson Out For Preseason Finale

The Pittsburgh Steelers will take on the Carolina Panthers Thursday night at Heinz Field in their 2014 preseason finale and two of their draft picks won’t dress one again due to injuries.

Linebacker Jordan Zumwalt (groin) and cornerback Shaquille Richardson (knee) will miss yet another game Thursday night, according to Scott Brown of Both players have not played since the preseason opener and it looks like both will be waived on Saturday or placed on injured reserve if their injuries are long term.

Cornerback Cortez Allen (finger) and center Cody Wallace (finger) will also sit this game out as well, according to Mark Kaboly of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.

With Wallace sidelined once again, rookie offensive lineman Wesley Johnson will likely get a lot of playing at center after starter Maurkice Pouncey is done for the night.

    Unless McCain has some amazing showing, we will be searching the waiver wire for another CB. Hopefully someone who can contribute

    Well lets hope they are placed on IR sort of like N.Williams was last season and hopefully get a better look at them next offseason.

    With C.Allen out we should get a good long look at McCain and Blake

    What’s with the finger injuries? Was Wallace trying to give a prostate exam again? Maybe Cortez is just rusting his signing finger, getting ready to sign an extension.
