PITTSBURGH -- The Pittsburgh Steelers are a team that has become accustomed to dealing with injuries through the first five weeks of the season.And the list keeps growing.Defensive end Cameron Heyward was the latest starter affected after he left Sundays 31-13 victory against the New York Jets in the second quarter with a hamstring injury.The Steelers defense didnt miss a beat in the second half despite the loss of the defensive captain.We know Cam is one of the leaders on our defense, defensive end Stephon Tuitt said. The next guy stepped up and stepped up big.Tuitt led the defensive line with Heyward sidelined as Pittsburgh shut out the Jets in the second half. The Steelers limited New York to five first downs and just 100 yards over the final two quarters while harassing quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick with an effective pass rush.They may have to do it again Sunday at Miami (1-4) with Heywards consecutive games-played and started streaks in jeopardy.Since entering the NFL as the Steelers first-round pick in 2011, Heyward has played in 85 consecutive regular-season games, third-longest active among NFL defensive ends. He also started 49 straight, which is fifth-best among defensive ends.Heyward didnt speak with reporters on Monday, but he didnt sound optimistic about his availability following Sundays game. He underwent a MRI and said he felt soreness, but didnt know if there was a `pop in his hamstring.It definitely wasnt precautionary, Heyward said Sunday. If I could be out there I would. Other guys have to step up. Were going to need them all as long as Im out.Rookie Javon Hargrave and veteran Ricardo Mathews shared snaps at defensive end with Heyward out. Hargrave, who also played defensive tackle on Sunday, would like to see Heyward on the field, but hes comfortable with the additional workload.It was pretty good to see my role increase, Hargrave said. If he cant go, well have to step up as a defensive line. Hes our leader, but at the same time, we have guys that can fill that role.The Steelers at least have a little bit of practice subbing for Heyward. He sustained a high ankle sprain during the Steelers third preseason game and missed practice time, but worked his way back in time for the teams regular-season opener at Washington.Heyward led the way again two weeks ago as the Steelers defensive end -- frustrated after a lopsided rout at Philadelphia -- had a career-best three sacks and tipped a pass that led to a timely interception during a blowout win against Kansas City.He goes hard every time, Hargrave said. When you see somebody dominating, you want to be dominant too.Heyward expects Tuitt to fill that role if he cant play.He better be ready, Heyward said. I dont know how long Ill be out, but hes got to step up. Hes telling me hes talking a lot more and we need him to do that. When I come back, we can do that twice as much. Hes only going to grow in this situation.Game notes Steelers LB Ryan Shazier missed the previous two weeks with a knee injury, but said Monday that it feels better and he hopes to return soon. ... Safety Robert Golden, also out the previous two weeks with a hamstring injury, said he couldve played Sunday, but he was held out as a precaution. ... Receiver Sammie Coates wore a large ace bandage, but indicated he wont miss practice after sustaining a cut on his left hand that required stiches Sunday.---Online: AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and AP NFL Twitter feed: www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Wholesale Predators Jerseys . - Levi Browns tenure at left tackle for the Pittsburgh Steelers is over before it even began.

Weve picked out five standout performers from March, including Crystal Palaces Sullay Kaikai and Manchester United duo Ashley Fletcher and James Wilson.Agree with our selection or have we missed someone? Leave your comments below or tweet us @SkySportsFL to have your say... Sullay Kaikai (Crystal Palace - on loan at Shrewsbury) Sullay Kaikai is on loan at Shrewsbury from Crystal Palace The 20-year-old has hit the ground running since returning to Shrewsbury at the start of March, scoring six goals in as many games. His impressive form has helped the Shrews sit five points clear of the relegation zone in League One.It has also left manager Micky Mellon wondering why he has not been called up by England U21s yet.Tell me whos better than him in that Under-21 team? Mellon said. Look at the qualities he has. A young English talent who can score the kind of goals he has for us for so long now.Hes exciting for the fans and he makes back fours bend with his pace, trickery, directness and his desire to score. And he works his socks off. He comes with Premier League standards because thats what hes used to, and it rubs off on everyone else.Lee Tomlin (Bournemouth - on loan at Bristol City) Tomlin celebrates his winner against Fulham Signed on loan in January, Tomlin has played a key role in helping Bristol City pull clear of the Championship bottom three. His most influential moment in the March was the late free-kick at relegation rivals Fulham that secured a 2-1 victory for the Robins.It was a big feeling when that nestled in the bottom corner, said Bristol boss Lee Johnson. After training sessions he always has the ball out. The keepers stay out with him. Practice makes perfect. He can bend it like Beckham. He cant run so he has to!Tomlin was nominated for the Championship Player of the Month award for March but missed out to Sheffield Wednesdays Fernando Forestieri.Ashley Fletcher (Manchester United - on loan at Barnsley) Ashley Fletcher (L) celebrates winning the JPT The young forward has been in fine form in March, scoring twice as Barnsley have won four of their last five League One games.dddddddddddd The highlight, though, was netting at Wembley on Sunday in the Johnstones Paint Trophy final win over Oxford United. Fletcher grabbed the second goal as the Tykes came from behind to lift the trophy.Hopefully my profile has increased game by game but the main thing is to get experience, score as many goals as possible and return to United a better player, says the 20-year-old.James Wilson (Manchester United - on loan at Brighton) James Wilson (left) has shown encouraging signs at Brighton Although Brighton boss Chris Hughton says Wilson has been a bit stop-start since joining on loan, there have been encouraging signs recently. The forwards highlight of the last month was scoring the winning goal against Reading during a performance that Hughton said was his best all-round 90 minutes for the club.He has been involved and hes getting used to the level of what the Championship is, Hughton added.Gaston Ramirez (Southampton - on loan at Middlesbrough) Gaston Ramirez scored twice against Wolves After starting the month by scoring both goals in a 2-1 win over Wolves, Ramirez was named man of the match in Boros next game against Rotherham. He also scored in the 3-2 victory at QPR last Friday as Boro maintained their push for automatic promotion.Ramirez is getting better every game, said Boro boss Aitor Karanka after the win over Wolves. I knew he was a good player at Southampton and from the Premier League.He knows the country and style, I knew he would be an important player. I thought it would take time but it has not taken long and he plays well sooner than I expected.Hit the video at the top of this article to watch Marchs loan stars in action.
