That was quick. The Steelers needed cover as Antonio Brown and Jericho Cotchery are down with injury. Brown is expected to return for Week 13. The big target will also help the Steelers deal with injuries to Ben Roethlisberger and Byron Leftwich.
In other NFL news, Ed Reed was handed a suspension for his hits this weekend.

Black Friday is approaching, meaning deals for everyone except those working. Walmart employees are planning a strike on Friday, and Occupy Wall Street is supporting the movement.
Despite having his name cleared, Kevin Cash, the voice of Elmo recently accused of having sex with a minor, is moving on from his gig. Really a horrible situation, and makes children trying to speak out more difficult.
