David DeCastro to miss up to 5 months with knee injury

David DeCastro to miss up to 5 months with knee injury

Aug 26, 2012

Pittsburgh Steelers first round draft pick David DeCastro suffered a torn MCL, dislocated knee cap, and a partially torn patellar tendon on Saturday night against Buffalo.

According to a report on, the former Stanford star will miss up to 5 months of action, effectively ending his 2012 season.

This is terrible news for Steelers fans and owners of Pittsburgh skill position players, as the offensive line was an area of concern for the team last season. The club used two first round picks to add DeCastro and tackle Mike Adams to help improve on an aging and somewhat ineffective offensive line.

As reported by Mike Florio :”DeCastro suffered the injury when teammate Marcus Gilbert fell on DeCastro’s leg. Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has blamed it on the FieldTurf at Ralph Wilson Stadium.”
