Barring a setback, the Steelers are expecting Pro Bowl guard David DeCastro to be ready to return against the Houston Texans on Sunday. DeCastro missed the last two weeks of training camp and the first two games of the regular season with an unspecified knee injury. The schedule is for him to participate (in practice) and let the quality of that participation be our guide in terms of his availability,” coach Mike Tomlin said during his weekly news conference on Tuesday.
Patrick Mahomes and Lamar Jackson are two of the NFL's most dynamic young players. Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs are the defending Super Bowl champs and Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens, who finished with the top regular-season record last season, hope to get past them and reach the Super Bowl this season. Both teams are off to 2-0 starts this season and kept the top two spots in this week's AP Pro32 poll.
The Houston Texans are seeing the odds trending in their favor. The defending AFC South champions are going to Heinz Field for a Week 3 showdown with the Pittsburgh Steelers. After being nine-point underdogs in Week 1 at the Kansas City Chiefs and then seven-point underdogs at home against the Baltimore Ravens, the Texans’ odds to win keep improving.
