Injuries are a reality that every NFL team has to account for, and the Pittsburgh Steelers have endured more than their share of season-jeopardizing bodily harm. 

Even when you're dubbed "Men of Steel," principles of physics still find a way to prove that no athlete is impervious to damage, no matter their mettle or metal!

Certainly, injuries aren't a new fad in Pittsburgh, but their frequency in recent months has become alarming. Bloodied (and broken) noses, contusions, bum ankles...adverse reactions due to sickle-cell traits?!
