Pittsburgh Steelers offensive lineman David DeCastro has been ruled out of tomorrow’s game against the Patriots with an ankle injury.
Guy Whimper is expected to step in for DeCastro.
“They haven’t told me that yet,” Whimper said via Steelers.com. “I’m taking the approach like I am. I’m a whole lot more confident playing guard this week. If they need me there I’ll be ready.
“I’m willing and more than capable of coming in and helping this line out.”
In other injury news, Steelers guard Roman Foster is hopeful that he’ll play Sunday after coming off a concussion.
“Little bit better today,” Foster said. “I practiced all of today. (Saturday) I’ll take one more (test) and see what the docs say. I think I’ll be pretty sharp.”
