Steelers rookie G David DeCastro was carted off the field with a leg injury in Saturday's game. We break down the fantasy implications.

Pittsburgh Steelers rookie RG David DeCastro suffered an apparent leg injury early in Saturday's preseason game against the Buffalo Bills. He was carted off the field after getting tangled up with DT Marcell Dareus when teammate Marcus Gilbert fell on him. He spent several minutes writhing on the field before leaving. RB Isaac Redman left the field earlier with apparent neck soreness, but returned to the game on the next drive.

Analysis: Once again, the Steelers offensive line is in dire straits. They used the 22nd overall pick to grab DeCastro and 2nd-rounder on LT Mike Adams to shore up the run game and protect Big Ben, but both rookies have struggled in camp while the RB position has been a merry-go-round of injuries. It's too early to tell how serious DeCastro's injury is, so stay here and we'll keep you updated on SBN.
