PITTSBURGH (93.7 The Fan) – Only starter ruled out against the Giants tonight is guard David DeCastro.

DeCastro hurt his knee during a scrimmage over two weeks ago and hasn’t practiced since.  This will be just the fifth game the nine-year veteran has missed since 2012.

A starting receiver for the Giants is out, Golden Tate will miss after 49 receptions for 676 yards and 6 touchdowns with New York last year.  Tate has 7,890 career receiving yards and 44 career touchdowns.

Steelers are also benching rookie running back Anthony McFarland and rookie defensive lineman Carlos Davis, along with inside linebacker Ulysees Gilbert, tight end Zach Gentry and quarterback Josh Dobbs.
