Cameron Heyward Puts Steelers Fans on Notice

Most NFL players benefit from bulletin board material. Pittsburgh Steelers defensive lineman Cameron Heyward is finding his for the 2024 season.

But Heyward went a step further than simply searching for motivation on February 23. He fired a strong message to the fans who doubt he can return to his Pro Bowl level of play after an injury-plagued 2023 season.

“Funny how you get hurt and kill yourself just to get back to play and not be 100 percent,” Heyward wrote on X (formerly Twitter). “Now they want you to retire cuz I was hurt all year.

“At least I know where y’all stand. Y’all quick to forget when I am healthy….

“But I look forward to reminding y’all.”

Heyward was referring to the groin injury he suffered during the 2023 season. The muscle bothered him from the very beginning of training camp, and then he tore it off the bone in Week 1.

The 13-year veteran underwent surgery faced a 12-week recovery. But instead, he returned in seven and a half weeks.

Heyward made a significant impact on Pittsburgh’s run defense upon coming back. However, he didn’t have the same pass rushing numbers as he has throughout his career. Heyward finished with 2 sacks and 3 quarterback hits in 11 games during 2023.
