The Doctor Is In: For David DeCastro, Playing Sunday Is No Sure Thing

Following the dramatic and often painful Week 1 matchup against the Browns that resulted in a tie – considered a loss in Pittsburgh and a win in Cleveland – the injury list got a lot more extensive. Included among the battered Steelers is right guard David DeCastro, who suffered a hand injury in the second half.

DeCastro missed only 2 plays while getting evaluated on the sideline and never left the field for xrays. He finished the game but has not practiced since then. While he remains hopeful that he will play in the season home opener against the Kansas City Chiefs, it is by no means a sure thing.
