Steelers rookie OG David DeCastro was carted off the field with a knee injury in Pittsburgh’s preseason game against the Bills on Saturday. Trainers had to help the first-round pick to one foot before he was carted away from the field.
This injury could be yet another blow to the Steelers’ offensive line, which has struggled in preseason. While QB Ben Roethlisberger is used to playing behind shaky offensive line play, DeCastro was viewed as one of the young players that could upgrade the unit this offseason. The Steelers’ running game could be grounded all season.
