Steelers DE Brett Keisel to Miss Sunday's Game

Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin has ruled defensive end Brett Keisel out for Sunday's game against the Miami Dolphins.

Keisel injured his hamstring on Sunday, and will be replaced in the starting lineup by either Nick Eason or 2009 first-round pick Ziggy Hood.

A seventh-round pick out of BYU by the Steelers in 2002, the 32-year old Keisel is his fifth season as a full-time starter on the team's defensive line. Through five games this season, Keisel has 12 tackles, including a quarterback sack, and picked up his first career interception, which he returned 79 yards for a touchdown against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 3.
