SWEED DOESN’T MAKE EXCUSES
On Wednesday, wide receiver Limas Sweed chose not to speak to the media. But on Thursday, he did speak briefly about his dropped pass this past Sunday and his subsequent demotion this week.
Because he dropped what should have been a 34-yard touchdown pass in the Steelers’ 23-20 loss in Cincinnati, Sweed won’t even be in uniform Sunday night when the Steelers play the Chargers.
The Steelers’ new No. 4 wide receiver is veteran Shaun McDonald, who caught 79 passes two years ago when he played for the Detroit Lions.
“No excuses. I just have to make the plays,” Sweed said. “If you get open, you have to make the plays. It’s not rocket science. You just have to make the plays and be accountable. When your number is called, you gotta make the plays. There’s not much else to be said about it.”
This week at practice, Sweed has been running with the scout team offense.
