PITTSBURGH (93-7 The FAN) — Punter Daniel Sepulveda will not be in a Steelers uniform for the 2012 season, according to a report by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
The team has decided to not bring him back. Jeremy Kapinos is now the only punter on the Steelers roster.
Pittsburgh’s decision most likely stems from multiple knee injuries to Sepulveda since being drafted in the fourth round in 2007. He tore his ACL in 2008 and missed the entire season. In 2010, he missed another 12 games because of a torn ACL.
Sepulveda was placed on injured reserve last season with an injured meniscus.
