Steelers' David DeCastro to practice

Vincent Pugliese-US PRESSWIRE

David DeCastro is expected to participate in practice on Wednesday.

Pittsburgh Steelers guard David DeCastro is expected to participate in practice on Wednesday, according to a report by Mark Kaboly of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.

DeCastro suffered a torn MCL, dislocated kneecap and an injury to his patellar tendon in the team's Aug. 25 preseason game against the Buffalo Bills. He was placed on injured reserve with the designation to return after cuts and has been eligible to return to practice for weeks. While he had yet to participate in team practices to this point, DeCastro had been working with team trainers.

Now that he is returning to regular practice, the Steelers will have 21 days to decide if they will move him back to the active roster. Until they do so, he will not count against the 53 man total.

DeCastro was selected by the Steelers with the No. 24 overall selection in the 2012 NFL Draft out of Stanford.
