    Big Ben misses practice again today

    It also looks like Eason and Carey Davis will not be playing Sunday night. I can't remember a time that so many key players have been injured for the Steelers. This is crazy. The Bye Week can't get here soon enough.

    Hopefully for Ben - just a resting and precaution. Although I do think the lack of reps hurts him.

    Davis -- no big deal. I think McHugh can do most things better (catch, block) - just not a running threat.

    Lack of Eason means even less depth on the DL. Which could be bad if it is hot and Jax is pounding the ball.

    Perhaps Bailey if Woods is good to go. Or Frazier if his injury from the opening kickoff lingers (although all indications so far seem to show that he came out of that fine and the backboard was merely precautionary).


    The Rams' offense featuring weapons such as Marshall Faulk, Torrey Holt, and Isaac Bruce were known as "The Greatest Show on Turf"

    The Steelers' offense featuring weapons such as Le'Veon Bell and Martavis Bryant should be known as "The Greatest Show on Grass"

    This has nothing at all to do with respective playing surfaces at the Edward Jones Dome vs. Heinz Field.

    They can't add him to their practice squad, because he is already on Denver's practice squad. If they wanted to add him to their active roster, though, they could snatch him off the Broncos' practice squad, though.

    I wondered if someone picked him up. Thanks for the info.

    Yeah it's going to be a long hard fought battle that I believe we lose. Comes a point in time when too many back ups starting turns a team from quality to average or below, and we're pushing the point. 4 games in and we have backups starting for backups. Not good, we got some problems and no back ups worth a darn.
