Steelers Insider: Shaun Suisham has no regrets; More bad news for Bruce Gradkowski

Shaun Suisham says he wouldn't have done anything differently on a play that ended his season. Meanwhile, Bruce Gradkowski's season and possibly career could be over.

Shaun Suisham doesn't deserve a participation ring if the Steelers win the Super Bowl

Like James Harrison's kids, Steelers kicker Shaun Suisham won't be able to win anything this year. Therefore, he should do the right thing and not accept a commemorative ring if Pittsburgh wins the Super Bowl. After all, it could lead to him becoming entitled. Steelers linebacker James Harrison created a bit of a ruckus over the weekend when he took to social media to explain that he was giving back participation trophies his two boys received for doing fun sports stuff that didn't result in winning. As everyone knows, even if you work hard and give it your all, if you don't win, nobody...

Watch new Steelers kicker Garrett Hartley make some crazy trick field goals

AFC North: Steelers lose Shaun Suisham; Steve Smith to retire after 2015

The Ravens and Steelers both recently lost players likely for the entire 2015 season, though Pitt's loss of Shaun Suisham will hurt most. With the NFL preseason now here, we take a look around the AFC North to find the division's biggest storylines. Pittsburgh Steelers Steelers lose Shaun Suisham to ACL tearPittsburgh tried to keep their main players out of harm's why in their preseason opener by sitting guys like Ben Roethlisberger, Antonio Brown, Le'Veon Bell, and Martavis Bryant against Minnesota. They still managed to lose a key player when kicker Shaun Suisham tore his ACL while...

Steelers Mike Tomlin partly responsible for Shaun Suisham's torn ACL

Under normal circumstances, Mike Tomlin is better prepared than he was for this training camp, when he didn't bring in a 2nd place kicker. That decision has floundered on Shaun Suisham's season ending ACL tear suffered Sunday vs Minnesota in a very meaningless game. Now the black & gold face a very uncertain future at a key special teams position. Whoever said kickers are not football players never met Shaun Suisham. He may play the role of a place kicker in the National Football League for the Pittsburgh Steelers, but his mentality is more like a linebacker. It was that mentality that led...

In the short-term, Steelers kicker Suisham is irreplaceable

Steelers kicker Shaun Suisham will miss the 2015 season after tearing an ACL in the pre-season opener. He will be greatly missed. Why, Swish? Why?! You didn't have to do it. There was no reason for you to be in on that tackle. It was the opening kickoff of the second half, for crying out loud. Even if you had been the team's last line of defense -- you weren't -- and the returner was streaking down the field for a touchdown -- he wasn't -- it didn't matter. It didn't matter. For as much as Steeler Nation loves a gritty player, and for as much as we would love to see some more victories in...

Pittsburgh Steelers to workout three place kickers possibly replace Shaun Suisham

The Pittsburgh Steelers got the news they lost their starting place kicker for the season. They will bring in three new kickers to compete for his roster spot on Tuesday. The Pittsburgh Steelers received devastating news Monday when it was reported place kicker Shaun Suisham was lost for the season due to a torn ACL he suffered in the team's first preseason game while attempting to make a tackle on a kickoff return. With Suisham done for the season, and to be placed on injured reserve, the Steelers will be bringing in three place kickers to fill the void for the 2015 season. #Steelers...

Shaun Suisham injury: Really good place kickers are hard to come by

Shaun Suisham has converted 91.5 percent of his field goals over the past three seasons. Unfortunately for him and the Steelers, he may have suffered a season-ending knee injury Sunday night in the annual Hall of Fame game. What that means for Pittsburgh in 2015 can't be understated. Head coaches,  namely Mike Tomlin, don't throw out phrases such as "potentially significant" to describe an injury unless there's a great likelihood that it will indeed be that. Indeed, our worst fears were confirmed when it was announced earlier today that Shaun Suisham is out for the 2015 season, an...

Injury Report: Pittsburgh Steelers Kicker Shaun Suisham out for year

The worst news from the Steelers' opening preseason game is that they have lost their kicker for the season to injury. Shaun Suisham appeared to have his leg bent backwards in the first half of the Pittsburgh Steelers' opening preseason game against the Minnesota Vikings in Canton, Ohio last night. The initial reports were not good, and the worst fears have been come true. Suisham was injured trying to make a sideline tackle on a kickoff and got caught in a pile up of players. Going into today, the last shred of hope for Suisham to be able to recover for this season would have been if...
