Several nice plays. Once he was lined up over the slot receiver. On another pass play out to the flat he was very quick to get out there. And as I right this he gets a nice sack. He looks like all he lacks is opportunity. Physical LB who has some pretty solid instincts.

yes, that's the best I've seen Worilds look.

and another young LB who has also been impressive in the first half is Mortty Ivy, I think I've seen him make 4 or 5 tackles so far.

Agreed. Add what Stevenson Slyvester has done this preseason and the future is very bright at the Linebcker Factory.

Not to sound like a turd in the cool whip, but is he doing this against the 1st or 2nd team? I'm not able to see the game.

He got a sack because he was unblocked. I am not that impressed with him. He can only try and beat OL with a speed rush. He also seems to struggle to hold the edge. I can promise you that Timmons will move outside if an injury occurs rather than put Worilds in the game.

I read somewhere that the Steelers have also been having Stevenson Sylvester learn how to play the OLB position, which made me think they may also still have questions about Jason Worilds' ability to take over that position in the event of injury to Woodley or Deebo.

He's doing it against whatever opportunity he gets. As the #3 or #4 OLB he isnt going to get many reps versus an opposing first team. But I like what I see.

Max, you see "unblocked" and I see the speed in which he got there. Also when he was able to get out in the flat in coverage showed his speed as well.

When you say he struggles to hold the edge you are pretty much talking about every OLB the Pittsburgh Steeler have had in the past 20 years not names James Harrison. Greg Lloyd himself had trouble at times holding the edge. What makes these 3-4 OLB's is their ability to first get after the QB. Then being able to drop in coverage. Ask any 3-4 coach and they will tell you they are more concerned that the OLB turns the play inside than they are with them being able to hold the edge.
