The mighty Pittsburgh Steelers are looking a little like aluminum foil this off-season. Their quarterback troubles notwithstanding, the team has already shipped off troubled Superbowl MVP receiver Santonio Holmes to the New York Jets.
Word out of the Steelers camp this weekend is that their once great wide hope, Limas Sweed may be out for the entire 2010 season. On the camp's last day Sweed left the final practice with what appears to be a serious Achilles tendon injury, coach Mike Tomlin revealed.
If the tendon is ruptured, it likely would mean that Sweed could not play in 2010.
The Steelers entered mini-camp last week hoping Sweed, who was drafted in the second round of the 2008 draft, would finally develop into a solid deepthreat for the team.
So far in his short NFL career he has been nothing short of a solid disappointment for the team, fans, and fantasy teams. Whether it's emotional issues that required him to be placed on the IR or his penchant for dropping balls, he has been a bust.
That leaves Mike Wallace, and the ever aging Hines Ward as the team's primary receivers. Battling for playing time as well are Antwaan Randle El, Arnez Battle and new receiver Emmanuel Sanders.
