Pittsburgh Steelers to workout three place kickers possibly replace Shaun Suisham

The Pittsburgh Steelers got the news they lost their starting place kicker for the season. They will bring in three new kickers to compete for his roster spot on Tuesday.

The Pittsburgh Steelers received devastating news Monday when it was reported place kicker Shaun Suisham was lost for the season due to a torn ACL he suffered in the team's first preseason game while attempting to make a tackle on a kickoff return. With Suisham done for the season, and to be placed on injured reserve, the Steelers will be bringing in three place kickers to fill the void for the 2015 season.

Per Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, the team will be bringing in Jay Feely, Alex Henery and Garrett Hartley for workouts to try and find someone to handle the kicking duties for the remainder of the preseason, and possibly the 2015 regular season.

If you look at this list in disgust, realize there is a chance none of these three players will be on the team's 53-man roster when all is said and done. There are many teams, like the Denver Broncos, who have two place kickers competing for one roster spot in training camp. This means there will be kickers who will be released before the start of the 2015 regular season, and will be options for the Steelers if they choose to give them a shot.
