Bryant McFadden's Hip Injury Makes Return To Pittsburgh Steelers Questionable

Uh-oh for the Pittsburgh Steelers. CB Bryant McFadden suffered a hip injury in the first quarter of the 2011 Super Bowl against the Green Bay Packers and his return is officially questionable. CB William Gay will likely step into his role and the secondary will need to do some shifting. 

The Packers have shown early on they like playing with multiple receiver sets -- they opened the game with five-wide -- so McFadden's injury could potentially be a significant one. Pittsburgh's secondary would take a hit if McFadden were to miss extended time. 

Green Bay is already showing the importance  of a solid secondary when S Nick Collins picked off a QB Ben Roethlisberger pass and took it back for a touchdown.

So not much, if anything, is going right for Steelers fans right now. Steelers fans should remember three weeks ago in the AFC divisional playoff game against the Baltimore Ravens game when they were down 21-7 at halftime.
