The Steelers' defense should get some help in Week 12 with the return of DE Brett Keisel.

Head coach Mike Tomlin said Tuesday that he expects Keisel to play against the Bills this weekend after missing four of the last five games with a bad hamstring.

The Steelers' "D" also gets S Will Allen back at practice. Allen has sat out two games with a concussion and cleared to practice.

The way we see it

The Steelers' vaunted defense stepped up in Sunday's win over the Raiders, but it was gashed for 39 points in a Week 10 loss to the Patriots. Nick Eason had been starting for Keisel. The D-line has been without Aaron Smith so getting Keisel back will improve the front line.
