Brett Keisel Fighting Through His Last Games With Pittsburgh Steelers
In the last decade, Pittsburgh Steelers defensive end Brett Keisel has been one of the unsung heroes for the defense. Since being a seventh-round choice from BYU, Keisel has come a long way with the Steelers, and so has his famous beard.
Keisel has recorded over 380 tackles with the black and gold. The man with “da beard” is in his last season of his five-year contract he signed in 2009. At 35-years of age, he came into the 2013 season knowing this could be his last year in the NFL.
Keisel suffered a strange foot injury earlier in the season that has made the veteran miss time. With no break or ligament issue in the injury, it has made the recovery very awkward for Keisel to treat properly. However, the defensive end has made it back to probable status for when the Steelers take on the Green Bay Packers on Sunday.
Keisel has not seen action since going out on Thanksgiving night with the same injury. He then missed the following two games. There is no clear answer to how well Keisel’s foot has actually recovered, and how far he is from being at full health. However, with Keisel’s career likely coming to an end sooner rather than later, the veteran will try to push through the following two games of the season.
