Brett Keisel injury: Steelers DE ruled out for Week 14 vs. Dolphins

Jason Bridge-USA TODAY Sports

Keisel suffered a setback in his foot injury and has already been ruled out for Sunday's game.

Pittsburgh Steelers defensive end Brett Keisel has already been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Miami Dolphins. Keisel is suffering from plantar faciitis and had a setback in last week's Thanksgiving loss to the Baltimore Ravens.

Keisel previously missed two games with the injury. He tried to give it a go in Week 13, but appears to have aggravated it. Plantar fasciitis can be extremely painful and take over a month to fully recover from. The Steelers are not giving a timetable for his return.

Before the injury, Keisel played in the first 10 games of the season, recording two sacks, 25 tackles and a fumble recovery. It will be another loss for a Pittsburgh team still clinging to slim playoff hopes.

Keisel turned 35 in September and hinted during the offseason that 2013 could be his final year. He's set to become a free agent in 2014. Keisel has spent his entire 11-year career with the Steelers and is one of the final members left from their two Super Bowl wins.
