Steelers K Shaun Suisham sustained a hamstring injury Sunday and could miss a few weeks.

Suisham kicked just one extra point and didn't attempt a field goal in the loss to the Titans. FOX Sports' Mike Garafolo suggests Shayne Graham as a possible replacement. Given how poor the Steelers' offense looked Sunday, it's a fantasy kicking situation to avoid.

Steelers K Shaun Suisham recently underwent an appendectomy.

Swayze Waters handled kicking duties Thursday night, missing two kicks including a block. Suisham should be ready to go by Week 1, though he's never been consistently reliable on field goals.

Steelers agreed to terms with K Shaun Suisham.

Suisham did stabilize Pittsburgh's kicking game following the release of Jeff Reed, but he's never been reliable in several stops with the Cowboys and Redskins. We'd steer clear of Suisham in fantasy drafts even if the Steelers boast an above-average offense.

The Steelers reportedly hope to re-sign free agent K Shaun Suisham.

A contending team should be aiming higher, but the Steelers are apparently high on Suisham after he connected on 14-of-15 field goals in seven games last season. The Post-Gazette shoots down the notion that David Akers would be an option.

Coach Mike Tomlin admitted that attempting a 52-yard field goal with Shaun Suisham in the third quarter of Super Bowl XLV was a mistake.

Suisham is now just 6-for-11 in his career in the playoffs, but Tomlin put his shaky kicker in a terrible spot with the long attempt. "That was a terrible decision by me in hindsight," Tomlin said. "That wasn't even close." Suisham, who made 14-of-15 field goals during the regular season after taking over for Jeff Reed, is an unrestricted free agent this offseason.

The success rate for field-goal attempts at Pittsburgh's Heinz Field this season was just 71.8 percent.

That is substantially lower than the league-wide average of 79.7 percent, and a concern heading into an AFC Championship game that very well may be decided by a kick. Steelers kicker Shaun Suisham is 7-of-9 on field-goal attempts at home this season, but just 2-of-4 from 40 yards or longer. Surprisingly, Jets kicker Nick Folk is 4-of-4 for his career at Heinz Field.

Steelers signed K Shaun Suisham.

Suisham has been in a couple of the Steelers' training camps before, and they evidently liked what they saw from him in Tuesday's workout enough to cut Jeff Reed loose. He kicked fairly well for Dallas last season, making 20-of-24 field goal tries, though he has a history of unreliability.

Free agent K Shaun Suisham worked out for the Steelers Tuesday.

The Steelers appear fed up with Jeff Reed and are looking for a replacement. The team is familiar with Suisham, as he has been in a couple of their training camps before.

Free agent K Shaun Suisham is among the kickers trying out for the Lions Tuesday.

We know that Dave Rayner tried out Monday, but it's not clear who else is being worked out. Jason Hanson has an MCL injury and is expected to miss multiple weeks, though there's been no word yet of him possibly being placed on injured reserve.

Rams waived K Shaun Suisham and re-signed CB Marcus Brown.

Brown, originally waived by the team in May, will stand in as a camp body for the time being. Suisham goes now that starting K Josh Brown is healthy.

Rams signed K Shaun Suisham, formerly of the Browns.

Josh Brown will sit out Saturday's exhibition game with a tweaked hip, so Suisham will fill in for a week. Brown should be just fine by the season opener.

Browns released K Shaun Suisham.

The Browns are apparently satisfied that disgruntled kicker Phil Dawson will arrive on time for training camp. The team recently offered the reliable veteran a "modest raise," which didn't go over too well in Dawson's camp.

Browns signed K Shaun Suisham.

The Browns need a leg for offseason practices with Phil Dawson still disgruntled over his contract. Suisham, extremely inconsistent throughout his five-year career, failed to impress in a late-season audition with the Cowboys.
Tue, May 18, 2010 06:06:00 PM

Cowboys opted not to extend a tender offer to restricted free agent K Shaun Suisham.

Suisham wasn't expected back after his unimpressive performance taking over for Nick Folk. The Cowboys are going with David Buehler and Conner Hughes for now, though veteran Matt Stover could be a fallback plan.
