Not-so-Special Teams

So long, Arnold Harrison. We hardly knew ye. As Pink Floyd said -- eh, well, never mind.

Over the course of the past several years, Arnold Harrison had ACL surgery on both knees -- which may explain why he always seemed, to, move, so, stiff, stiffly.

Backup linebacker and "special teams demon" (cliche alert!) Donovon Woods replaces Harrison on the roster and on the kick coverage units. Woods played well in that role last year. Something had to be done, considering the Steelers have allowed three kickoff returns for touchdowns in the past four games. That cannot continue.

"We brought up Donovan Woods and he’ll have an opportunity to run down the middle of that unit and see if he can bring some energy to the group," head coach Mike Tomlin said.

Let's hope so.
