PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — During the Steelers’ game against the Giants on Monday night, left tackle Alejandro Villanueva chose to cover up the name of Antwon Rose Jr. on the back of his helmet, displaying the name of a military veteran instead.
The name Alwyn Cashe could be seen written on Villanueva’s helmet as the Steelers played the Giants on Monday Night Football.
I have absolutely no issue w/honoring Alwyn Cashe.
Doesn’t mean we can’t ask Al a)why he departed from what team did, & b)why he was ok covering Antwon Rose Jr.’s name.
It would give him a chance to describe why a posthumous Medal of Honor for Sgt. Cashe is so important to him. pic.twitter.com/D802hmCdpF

Before the game, the Steelers announced that the team would all wear Rose’s name on their helmets for the entirety of the 2020 season.
It’s unclear if Villanueva will continue to display Cashe’s name moving forward.
