Pittsburgh Steelers kicker could miss 3 weeks


The Pittsburgh Steelers have added injury to insult as Shaun Suisham injured hamstring could keep him out up to 3 weeks. Suisham’s injury was just one of several that the Steelers endured on the day in their 16-9 loss to the Tennessee Titans.

The worse by far was the season ending injury to center Maurkice Pouncey. Pouncey is one of the best offensive linemen in the game and will be very difficult to replace.

Replacing Suisham may prove to be a little easier as there are still some veteran kickers that are looking for a job. Mike Garafolo pegs former Cincinnati Bengals kicker Shayne Graham as a possible temporary replacement on the special teams unit. I am sure that Graham would relish the opportunity to come to a rival of the team that cut him and be in a position to possibly do some damage when they play said team in next weeks game.

 

 

You have to figure that it would give Graham extra motivation and possibly one more way for the Steelers to send a Psychological jab Cincinnati’s way.
