Travis Kirschke and Ziggy Hood to replace Aaron Smith

With defensive end Aaron Smith out for the season, the Steelers need to find a replacement for him. And they need to do it fast, since their defense has been pretty questionable so far this year.

Their two options are Travis Kirschke and Ziggy Hood. Kirschke nearly retired four years ago, and Hood is a rookie. Right now, Mike Tomlin plans on playing the two by "committee." 

Will one of them become the clear cut D-end to replace Smith? Or are the Steelers going to have a question mark at D-end for the rest of the season?
