Steelers looking for punter in wake of Sepulveda injury

The Steelers will sign a punter this week after Daniel Sepulveda was lost for the season while trying to make a tackle in a 13-10 win against the Ravens.

Sepulveda tore the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in his right knee when his cleat got caught in the turf at M&T Bank Stadium. It happened during Lardarius Webb's 35-yard punt return early in the second quarter. Sepulveda stayed in the game to hold for field goal and extra point attempts by Shaun Suisham, but Suisham punted the rest of the way.

The injury to his plant leg is the same one that Sepulveda sustained during training camp in 2008.

Injuries continue to mount for the Steelers.

In addition to Sepulveda, tight end Heath Miller got knocked out of thegame with a concussion, and right tackle Flozell Adams sustained a high ankle sprain.

“We'll put the healthy men on the field next week and move forward,” Coach Mike Tomlin said after the Steelers improved to 9-3.
