DeCastro to return to practice

The Steelers have informed the NFL that rookie David DeCastro will return to practice today.

DeCastro has been on injured reserve all season after injuring his knee in the team's final preseason game at Buffalo.

The Steelers have a two week roster exemption with DeCastro before he must be activated.

DeCastro had been slated to start at right guard this season before injuring his knee. Ramon Foster has started every game in place.

Any chance DeCastro actually sees any game action this year, or is he strictly practicing to get reps with an eye toward 2013?

he wasn't even that good before he got injured.

Foster has been okay i guess.

i dont see DeCastro playing at all this year

"he wasn't even that good before he got injured."

Kind of difficult to say without having taken a single regular season snap. I mean, the guy's a rookie, give him a little time to grow. The tape on him at Stanford was ungodly.

Foster has been solid, but if this season taught us anything, injuries are a play away. The more talented players we can have to the depth chart, the better.

Isn't it a 3 week window they have to activate him or put him on IR?
