Ruled out for Pittsburgh

Posted Aug 11, 2009

Not much coming out of coach Ken Whisenhunt's presser today. Interestingly, he still isn't ruling Beanie Wells out for the Steelers' game, although I don't see how Beanie will play (even Whisenhunt admitted he probably isn't even going to practuce yet again today). Out for sure according to the coach, in what comes as no surprise, WR Early Doucet, TE Anthony Becht, T Elliot Vallejo. He didn't mention DE Keilen Dykes, but I don't see Dykes having any chance either.

Other than that, basic stuff. I'll have some notes later today (and I will post the Hightower story in a minute) but then I need to trek back down the hill. We've got a plane to catch tomorrow.
