Heyward to miss rest of season
Pittsburgh Steelers defensive end Cameron Heyward announced on Instagram that he will miss the rest of the season after suffering a torn pectoral muscle:


I would like to thank everyone who has been in my corner this season. It pains me to say that I will not get to continue playing this season. My role will change as I can not play but it will not change the goals the team has set out. My support for this team will only grow and I look forward in watching this team grow and fight on. Hate being on the sideline but there is a greater plan taking place. My patience will be tested but I look forward to 2017. My hand will remain in the pile no matter what!
