Pittsburgh second-year inside linebacker Devin Bush sustained what coach Mike Tomlin called a “significant knee injury” in Pittsburgh’s 38-7 rout of the Browns on Sunday.
Bush, who had not missed a defensive snap all season, injured his left knee in the second quarter when he took an awkward step while attempting to break up a pass.
“Devin is a great player,” Steelers outside linebacker Bud Dupree said. “He’s one of the most underrated guys on the team, one of the fastest guys on the team, so anytime you lose somebody like that, it’s a big blow. But (Robert) Spillane came in and did well. He communicated well. Prayers up for Devin as he goes through recovery.”
Justin Haley to return to Kaulig in Xfinity Series in 2021
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Justin Haley will return to Kaulig Racing for a third season in the Xfinity Series. The team announced the one-year contract extension with a clever social media post in which fan favorite AJ Allmendinger briefly teased that he would be the driver of the No. 11 Chevrolet next year. Instead, Allmendinger peeled the tape off the car to reveal Haley’s name. The extension delays an expected promotion for Haley to a full-time Cup Series ride with Spire Motorsports. Haley could still run races in NASCAR’s top series next year but will contend for the Xfinity Series title with Kaulig.

Fred Dean, 68, fearsome pass rusher of 49ers’ dynasty, dies
By JOSH DUBOW AP Pro Football Writer
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The fearsome NFL pass rusher Fred Dean has died. The death of the former San Francisco 49ers star on Wednesday night was confirmed by the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Ex-teammate Dwight Hicks says Dean was hospitalized last week with the coronavirus and was on a ventilator. Dean was a key part of the launch of the 49ers’ dynasty. He was an undersized pass rusher who began his career as a second-round pick with the San Diego Chargers in 1975 and ended it in the Hall of Fame after being named an All-Pro twice and making four Pro Bowls. Dean was an All-Pro for the Chargers in 1980 but had his biggest impact after being traded to San Francisco during the 1981 season. Fred Dean was 68 years old.
