LATROBE, Pa. -- Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Bruce Gradkowski has a sizable hamstring tear, according to a source, complicating the team's quarterback depth chart.

Gradkowski, who is entering his 10th NFL season, suffered the injury in the preseason opener against the Detroit Lions.

The Steelers could place Gradkowski, 33, on injured reserve for the second straight year or wait out the injury. Gradkowski missed all of 2015 with shoulder and hand/finger injuries. This offseason, he re-signed with the team on a one-year deal.

When a guy tears his hamstring sliding, maybe its time to look for somebody less fragile. Captain Lance Murdoch is out there I think.

Gradkowski must have spent the offseason training with the same conditioning coach as Goldon

I'm thinking he's done. Either IR, or the Steelers will "encourage" him to retire.

Really wish we had picked up Mettenberger when he was available in the offseason. He's still very young with quite a bit of potential and could've learned a thing or two from Ben. Probably could've gotten him for peanuts, too.
