On the bad news front, the Steelers have lost Rashard Mendenhall and Kendall Simmons for the rest of the season. They will both be placed on injured reserve. Mendenhall has a fractured shoulder, while Simmons has a torn Achilles tendon. Andre Frazier was carted off the field after the opening kickoff. He appeared to move his legs on the field and gave the fans a wave as he left strapped to a backboard, and we found out after the game that he will be fine, although he does have a spine injury. Lastly (we hope) on the injury list is Carey Davis, who left the game in the fourth quarter with a sprained ankle. At this time, the Steelers only have one healthy running back in Mewelde Moore. Darnell Stapleton replaced Simmons, who played with the first team for the first time in his two years of being with the Steelers. This is a hard blow to the Steelers, especially having to go to Jacksonville next week for Sunday night football. Hopefully the replacements can step up.
Speaking of injuries, another injury is a huge blow, but this time to the Pens. Sergei Gonchar will have surgery on his dislocated shoulder and will miss four to six months. This is extremely bad news for the Pens and extremely unfortunate. He will definitely be missed. We're hoping Goligoski steps up and plays well. We were looking forward to seeing him anyway, now he's got a huge opening to help fill.
Richard Collier is paralyzed after being shot 14 times earlier this month. Extremely unfortunate.
Don't forget to watch Yinz Luv 'Da Stillers sometime today when the new episode is up.
That's all from us, hopefully we covered it all. See you soon.
