Pittsburgh’s Devin Bush had his second season cut short when he suffered a torn ACL during his team’s Week 5 win over Cleveland.

One of the Steelers’ critical defensive pieces, Bush said in a Q&A call with fans set up by the team that his rehab process is going well.

“I’m on schedule,” Bush said, via Brian Batko of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “I’m feeling stronger week by week, and I’m just trying to get ready physically for next year — especially for camp. I’m just staying positive for things and doing everything I can possible to make myself one of the best players next year.”

Bush started 15 games as a rookie in 2019, recording 109 tackles, nine tackles for loss, a pair of interceptions, six passes defensed, a sack, and four fumble recoveries. In 2020, he had 26 total tackles, one sack, three passes defensed, and a pair of QB hits in five games.

  1. When 55 went down last year the defense immediately lost their speed. Players were flocking to the ball, swallowing up every run attempt early in the season. Post Bush injury, the defense pumped the breaks and didn’t look nearly as inspired, much less fast. Such a crucial position, even more so with wearing the green dot. If the Steelers get lucky and stay healthy next year, the defense alone will keep the team competitive…..even if Bubby Brister ends up behind center.

  2. A player like Bush, and there aren’t many, is as much a leader as he is a great player. He picks up everybody. Reminds me of a young Ronnie Lott when he joined the 49ers. Joe Montana was the GOAT, but Ronnie was the leader of that defense. Even as a rookie.

  3. Couple this guy’s loss & Dupree’s ACL & Steelers were doomed defensively. Hopefully can be more like Devin Bush and lead this D. He needs to step it up big – his splash plays, like that of Ben last season, went down dramaticly in his rookie season, after Nov.
