A Steelers season rife with injuries has had another.

The 6-foot-6, 303-pound Tuitt has started all six games this season and has 3.5 sacks.

Tuitt still has three more seasons on his contract with the Steelers. Next year his cap hit will be $14.9 million.

    Their D blows so this shouldn’t matter

    We’ll see if the Pats’ D blows when they actually play a team with an offense.

  2. Geez. What a string of bad news emerging from the first six games this season. Ouch. Maybe that’s why McCullers was lined up over there in the fourth.

    They have a week off to realign with the players available to them.

  3. He is a very good player but with his injury history the Steelers need to consider moving on and saving his cap hit.

    Easy for a D to look good when a cakewalk schedule (Giants, Skins, Jets, Bills Dolphins, Steelers) puts you against some of the worst offenses in the NFL.

    Avg rank of Pats opponents on major offensive stats — PPG: 27/32, Pass Yds: 26/32, Rush Yds: 23/32. Every team the Pats have played are one of the two bottom teams in their division, except for the Bills only by virtue of the fact that the always-weak AFC East has the Jets and Dolphins spiraling for the bottom.

  5. This is a bummer. From one Stephan to another Stephon, I feel for you, my brother. Get well!

  6. These injuries all but assure another season of Tomlin’s pathetic coaching.
    He has several built in excuses for an underachieving team.

  7. Hitting QBs after they’ve run out of bounds can be hazardous to both parties.
