Sepulveda Out For Season With Torn ACL

BALTIMORE (KDKA) – Pittsburgh Steelers punter Daniel Sepulveda tore his right anterior cruciate ligament when his cleat got caught in the turf during the second half of the Steelers-Ravens game on Sunday night.

The injury is to his non-kicking leg.

Sepulveda was able to stay in the game to hold for Shaun Suisham, but the Steelers new kicker punted for the remainder of the game.

Sepulveda will need surgery to repair his ACL. The Steelers will now need to sign a free agent punter.

This is the second time Sepulveda has injured his ACL; he suffered the same injury two years ago.

Sepulveda was averaging 45.5 yards in 56 punts this season. His longest punt was 62-yards and had 16 punts within the 20.
