Torn pectoral muscle ends season for Steelers DL Tuitt

PITTSBURGH (AP) The Pittsburgh Steelers will have to dig their way out of an early season hole without defensive end Stephon Tuitt.

The team placed Tuitt on injured reserve on Tuesday, two days after Tuitt tore a pectoral muscle in the first quarter of a 24-17 victory over the Los Angeles Chargers . The six-year veteran was in the midst of his best season, racking up 3+ sacks and six tackles for loss in just over five games for a defense that ranked among the NFL leaders in sacks (third) and takeaways (second), one of the few bright spots during a 2-4 start.

"I thought Tuitt was having a heck of a year," defensive tackle Cam Heyward said. "You never want to see a guy go down but from offseason until where he got, he had made a lot of progression and I'm proud of him. I like to think he was having a Pro Bowl, All-Pro year. Now he's got a setback but he's going to bounce back in a big way."
