We’ve gotten some clarity regarding the knee injury suffered by Steelers guard David DeCastro. And it’s not good.
Per a source with knowledge of the situation, DeCastro is expected to miss three-to-five months with various injuries in his right knee. Though the official diagnosis will come via a Monday MRI, we’re told that DeCastro currently is believed to have a torn MCL, a dislocated kneecap, and a partially torn patellar tendon.
Prior reports about DeCastro’s condition had been somewhat conflicting. We’re confident that the latest reflects the pre-MRI diagnosis.
