Steelers place Curtis Brown on injured reserve

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin announced Monday that cornerback Curtis Brown would miss the rest of the season after tearing his ACL against the Browns on Sunday afternoon.

They made that official on Tuesday by placing Brown on injured reserve. Brown was a core special teamer for the Steelers this season, but he played just one snap on defense so his absence isn’t going to cause any change to the secondary that will try to stop the Ravens on Thursday night.

Brown saw more action on defense in the past, but the change in playing time for the 2011 third-round pick doesn’t bode well for his continued presence on the Steelers roster once the season comes to a close.

The Steelers promoted cornerback Isaiah Green from the practice squad to take Brown’s spot on the roster. Green has played in three other games for the Steelers this season during a previous stint on the active roster.

    Get well Brown. Bad timing, as there will be picks-o-plenty out there Thursday.

    That is now 11 players on injured reserve. What is up with the conditioning of the players?

    Speaking of injuries… I’m hoping Worilds starts in place of Woodley again. Worilds looks like a completely different player on the other side. Have the Steelers had him targeted to play on the wrong side all this time? He and Jones looked real good together last game. I think a lot of that can be attributed to better play in the middle, particularly from Heyward. He seems to get better every single week. Before the season, I figured the D-line would be the weakest link on D. Not anymore, that distiction now belongs to our FS.

    I would hardly call Curtis a bust given his limited opportunities.
