Andre Frazier Out For Season With Knee Injury

Another season ending injury for a member of the Pittsburgh Steelers. Willie Colon and Limas Sweed were already lost for the year this offseason with Achilles heel injuries. Add reserve linebacker Andre Frazier to the list, who suffered a knee injury that will sideline him for the entire 2010 campaign. Frazier was placed on Injured Reserve.

Frazier has played 29 games for the Steelers the past two seasons on defense and as a special teams contributor. To replace him, the Steelers signed Brandon Renkart, who has been on the practice squad of the Jets, Cardinals and Colts since 2008. In all actuality though, the unfortunate injury to Frazier means rookie linebackers Jason Worilds and Thaddeus Gibson might have a very solid shot at dressing and contributing this season.
