Bruce Gradkowski reportedly has torn hamstring
ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports that, according to an inside source, Steelers QB Bruce Gradkowski has a torn hamstring.
Gradkowski suffered the injury in Friday's preseason opener against the Detroit Lions, and claimed he heard a "pop" when he pulled up lame after a second half scramble. In all likelihood, the 33-year-old veteran will be placed on IR for a second consecutive season, but the team hasn't announced their official decision yet. This injury could quietly come back to haunt the Steelers' depth at the QB position should Landry Jones continue to underwhelm as the backup. With only Dustin Vaughan left behind Jones, who has never taken a regular season snap in the NFL, the Steelers could now look to free agency to address their QB situation.
