    Ike Taylor out 2-6 weeks

    A source with knowledge of the situation tells Profootballtalk.com that Steelers RCB Ike Taylor is out at least 2-6 weeks with a right fibula injury, and there is "concern that the injury is significant."
    Taylor has missed only three games in his career, and none since 2004. He is clearly the Steelers' top cornerback, so the loss is significant.

    Huge blow. Cortez played very well, only bad plays were a bogus penalty and a touchdown after said bogus penalty. But that was against Joe Flacco. Have the talented but underperforming Rivers next, then the talented but underperforming Romo, then Dalton then an opportunity for revenge on Weeden. I kind of want to see a Keenan Lewis vs AJ Green battle. Ike beat Green however many weeks or months ago, would love to see how Lewis would do.

    So that's what, 10 different starters missing time this season?

    This is good for the young guys like Allen, Lewis, and Brown, but bad for everyone else. Let's hope the young guys can play big.

    Lol^

    It sucks because Ike was playing so well and he's getting up there in age, so who knows how much longer he can perform at a high level. Hopefully it won't keep him out of the playoffs if we make it.

    Nah Keisel's been healthy.

    Ben, Mendy, Redman, Dwyer (counting all three), I think David Johnson would have been the starter over Will Johnson due to experience and familiarity but Will has worked out pretty well, Colon, Pouncey, DeCastro, Gilbert, Adams, Harrison, Woodley, Clark, Polamalu...Taylor makes the 15th starter to miss at least one game. 14th if you don't want to count D. Johnson. Starks is the only lineman not to miss a game, and he's coming back from a torn ACL from 9 months earlier.

    For what it's worth, sometimes losing a starter can really inspire guys to play at a higher level. In Carolina, we lost Chris Gamble (our top CB) early in the year. The guys behind him haven't been perfect, but they've definitely played above their abilities, which is really encouraging. Similarly, I've been pleased with Lewis and Allen stepped up, so maybe it will really be a chance for those guys to get the reps and show that they're the guys for the future.
