Steelers DE Brett Keisel limped off the field during Pittsburgh's 38-7 win over Buffalo Saturday, with what head coach Mike Tomlin would later describe as a "mild high ankle sprain."

Keisel told reporters after the game "It's no problem," and he'll be expected to play in the season-opener at Denver Sept. 9.

This came in wake of Steelers RG David DeCastro suffering what appeared to be a significant injury to his right knee, one that could keep him out of the 2012 season.

No word has been released on the prognosis of DeCastro's injury, but it didn't look good, and some sources are reporting he tore his ACL and MCL, and will be out for the 2012 season.

RB Isaac Redman suffered a stinger during the game, adding to the hip injury he suffered earlier in the preseason. He returned to the field on the team's third possession, and scored from two yards out on third down in the second quarter. It was the first Steelers' touchdown, and one of two touchdowns they ran for in the game.

Outside of the potentially devastating injury to DeCastro, though, the Steelers remained relatively healthy.

Other than that, Mrs. Lincoln, did you enjoy the play?
