Steelers should get some guys healthy in time for Browns

Mike Tomlin AP

The Steelers still have some degree of a chance, and there’s a chance they’re getting well enough to make it a better one.

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin told reporters that three starters who missed Sunday’s win over the Lions could return this week, and another who was injured could be back against the Browns Sunday as well.

According to By Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Tomlin said that defensive end Brett Keisel (foot), outside linebacker LaMarr Woodley (calf) and guard Ramon Foster (ankle) “have a legitimate opportunity to play” in Sunday’s loser-leaves-town match against the Browns.

Tomlin was also encouraged that wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders could be back as well for the Browns game, after injuring his right foot and not returning.

“We’ll see how his body responds,” Tomlin said. “He’s feeling much better than he did on Sunday.”

The two teams are tied for second in the division, two games back of the Bengals. And while neither have great chances, it is still the AFC so it’s hard to be out at the moment.

    1st round draft bust david decastro is looking forward to re-injuring guard Ramon Foster with a chop to his knees.

    I say stick to the guys who played last Sunday… I liked those results.

    fi lrst round draft pick David DeCastro turned in a stellar performance against N. SUH not allowing one tackle. By all sources that actually count David DeCastro has graded out very high thus far this season.

    fire Tomlin.

    The next three games are big for us. I hope we win all three games but if you can win 2 out of 3 then your in good shape. Hopefully Ben gets to call most of the game again vs the Brownies like how he did vs the Lions.

    Haley…. how does he have a job in the NFL???

    Good news. The Steelers are going to need all of the help they can get to weather the rest of the season. The Browns haven’t been pushovers for PIT in a few years and keep getting a little better every year.

    Umm what happened in the last game of the year last year when ben played. 24 -10 or and they had the same team last year when we turned the ball over 8 times and we lost by 6 points. So who is this doctor dude he has to be a ratbird or clowns fan.

    AFC is goofy this year…but I feel confident saying the Steelers need to win the next 5 out of 6 games or they’ll be watching from their homes again.

    DeCastro is a stud. End of discussion.

    How are those ravens doing in LAST place.?Don’t worry because OZZIE knows…..LAST place!

    I don’t think Terry Bradshaw, Lynn Swann, and Franco Harris could prevent slaughtering that the Steelers are about to suffer in the Dawg Pund this Sunday. Browns 31 -Steelers 6

    Believe it or not, I am rooting for the Steelers to win almost every remaining game they play this season… as long as they lose the last game.

    Now that the playoffs are a HUGE longshot for them, I want them to screw up their draft position by winning a bunch of meaningless games. That will mean worse draft choices for them & also, worse teams in the future…

  14. stillers213 says: Nov 19, 2013 3:13 PM

    Woodley should take another game off. Worilds played better vs Det than Woodley has played in any game this year that he started. How he is not criticized for that $61M contract more is beyond me?

    How has that abundance of high draft picks over the last umteen years worked out for your team?

    Yeah, that is what I thought.

    Nothing is going to heal my eyes from those bumblebee outfits. (I just can’t call those things ‘uniforms’ with a straight face.)

  17. stillers213 says: Nov 19, 2013 3:22 PM

    If the Steelers win out and Cincy loses to SD or Indy on the road, then we win the North with the division record tiebreaker. :)

  18. crownofthehelmet says: Nov 19, 2013 3:25 PM

    Huge longshot to make playoffs?! Look at the teams they’re battling with for the last wildcard. They own tiebreakers on most of them.

    So tell me “Kreskin” which team is my team? Ya wanna know for sure?

    Ok. Pick a team… any team. Don’t matter.

    My favorite team is whichever one is playing against the Steelers that week. It makes me very happy to see Pittsburgh lose. I know that breaks your little heart to pieces but try to understand that not everyone thinks the Steelers are God’s gift to football.

    Sorry but they just aren’t….

    That’s just kind of pathetic. Not being able to gain joy based upon the accomplishments of a team you enjoy watching, but rather finding happiness in a negative? That’s not something that shames us Steeler fans, my friend. That is an indicator that something is very wrong in your life, and I certainly hope you are able to work through it.

    LOL huh? Yea….and if Superfly Jimmy Snuka didn’t do sterioids, he wouldn’t have won the first E.C.W. World Championship either.

    I think a 9 and 7 team is taking the final wildcard spot. As far as DeCastro is concerned, he is playing much better than he was 4 weeks ago. He’s young and learning fast.

    LOL all you want but nobody thought we’d even be having this conversation a few weeks ago. At least all of the Raven trolls have all but disappeared. The 3 Cincy trolls will disappear shortly as well.

    The remainder of the season isn’t as rough as it appeared to be 3 weeks ago

  26. beelicker says: Nov 19, 2013 5:46 PM

    Ummm … 213, Indy plays @Cincinnati so your dream scenario there is quite impossible

  27. brownsfan39 says: Nov 19, 2013 10:41 PM

    The way the browns are playing, the steelers could probably beat us with their practice squad!

    Longshot? Y’all must not have seen the wild card teams records ..
