Hamstring injury will sideline Steelers' Keisel for Dolphins game

PITTSBURGH -- Steelers defensive end Brett Keisel will sit out Sunday's game at Miami with a left hamstring injury.

Keisel was injured during the first quarter of the Steelers' 28-10 victory over the Cleveland Browns on Sunday and didn't return.

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said either Nick Eason or former first-round draft pick Ziggy Hood would replace Keisel.

Steelers right guard Doug Legursky sprained a medial collateral ligament in his left knee against the Browns, but he returned to the game. He is expected to play against the Dolphins.

Legursky replaced Trai Essex, who has missed three games with a sprained left ankle. Legursky could keep the job even when Essex is ready to play.
