The Pittsburgh Steelers offensive line -- which has always been known to be a bit shaky -- just got a little bit more unstable.

ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter is reporting that the team's first-round draft pick and potential starting guard David DeCastro suffered a serious knee injury Saturday night.

It was in a pre-season game versus the Buffalo Bills when he got bullied over by defensive tackle Marcell Dareus on a pass play.

Reports are that the rookie dislocated his knee cap, tore his MCL and suffered some damage to his patellar tendon. The good news, however, is that his ACL is not torn and intact.

The Steelers are unsure at this point if the talented rookie will be able to play at all this season.
