Jason Worilds leaves with knee injury

Steelers outside linebacker Jason Worilds has been ruled out for the remainder of Thursday’s preseason game at Philadelphia with a right knee injury, the club said.

Worilds was credited with a sack of Eagles quarterback Mark Sanchez early in the third quarter, but the play was nullified by a penalty. On the next play, Worilds appeared to be no longer in the game, and the Eagles scored a touchdown. The Steelers then ruled him out the rest of the way.

The 26-year-old Worilds had a breakout 2013 season, recording a career-high eight sacks. He’s playing under the one-year transition tender.

The Steelers have not played well in their third exhibition game of the summer, and starters have played well into the third quarer on both sides of the ball.

UPDATE 9:56 p.m. ET: Ken Laird of TribLive Radio in Pittsburgh reports Worilds was icing his knee.

  2. “I impacted the game and as an official you never want to do that," Bill Leavy said in reference to Super Bowl XL. "It left me with a lot of sleepless nights and I think about it constantly. I’ll go to my grave wishing that I’d been better.” says: Aug 21, 2014 10:19 PM

    The Steelers look old and slow. Even Bill Leavy won’t be able to help them.

    The Steelers are playing their Starters surprisingly long. With about 6-1/2min left in the4th, Blount is still carrying the ball..?Tomlin normally do this in the 3rd preseason games, in the past?

  4. The Steelers are Marching and the world cowers. The three rivers were made from your tears, and we build boats. We build lots of boats. We walk beside pristine trophy cases and engraved gold. They say it's lonely at the top, but we sure like the view says: Aug 21, 2014 10:55 PM

    Has anybody asked Elizabeth Warren her view of the Redskins? She is a liberal. She lied about being an Indian so that she could get a job. Somebody should ask her if the word is offensive. They should definitely ask her as liberals are great standard bearers for truth and what it is like to be an Indian.
