Steelers were confused by Alejandro Villanueva anthem appearance, report says

Steelers lineman Alejandro Villanueva emerged from the locker room and stood just outside the tunnel during the national anthem before Sunday’s game, which was a move the Steelers didn’t anticipate, ESPN.com reported, citing a source.

The team agreed to stay in the locker room during the anthem before its game against the Bears. Villanueva, a former Army Ranger, reportedly agreed to stay with the team, but still went out to stand for the anthem.

“Really just see how it goes,” Johnson said when talking about his recovery. “Just rehab obviously after the cast and everything. We’ll see what happens.

“I’m really just trying to make sure my wrist is 100 percent.”

Johnson sustained the injury against the Lions, when he landed on it awkwardly while trying to make a 24-yard catch. He stayed in the game, but fumbled the ball later and admitted he couldn’t feel his hand.

“I was ticked off at first, especially the day of the injury just because it was a big moment of the game,” Johnson said. “It was a close game. I had fumbled and it was the first game. I was really upset. I was really frustrated with myself, really down on myself and then after I talked to Tom (Reed, a Cardinals trainer), after I talked to family members, the players communicating with me, I just faced the facts. Just stayed positive and get through it.”

Johnson said he’s trying to rest, but that has been tough for him. He can’t workout hard and he can’t practice. But what he said was toughest was not being able to easily take care of his 8-month-old son.

“I can’t really carry him,” he said. “I get nervous. He’s Premier League Cheap Jerseys starting to get a little more squirmy, so it’s hard to carry him; and my wife, she doesn’t really trust me carrying him. That’s Nike NFL Jerseys Wholesale probably the toughest thing.”
