Rookie guard David DeCastro, who suffered a significant knee injury against the Buffalo Bills Saturday night, will have surgery on Wednesday.
“I have no update on David DeCastro,” said Tomlin. “He has surgery scheduled. I’ll update you guys after the surgery.”
Tomlin said that teammates were disappointed for DeCastro, the team’s number one pick this year, after the injury which could have him sidelined for a while.
“The guy is injured and you feel sorry for him on a personal level,” said Tomlin.
“Professionally, we understand that this is as much a part of the game as blocking and tackling. So, we move on.”
DeCastro’s teammates said he was upbeat when he was at the team’s practice facility on Monday, and when asked about that Tomlin joked about the quiet, reserved DeCastro.
“Well, those of you that know DeCastro, know that upbeat for him is a stretch,” said Tomlin.
