Veteran defensive end Brett Keisel left the game early today with what looked like a serious triceps injury. After the game, Coach Tomlin said his tricep was being evaluated, but didn’t have any additional information at the time.
Some of Keisel’s teammates are indicating to reporters that he is done for the year. According to Scott Brown of ESPN, James Harrison flat out said that he is done for the remainder of the year.
