|The Pittsburgh Steelers took to the practice field on Wednesday missing more than half of their starting offensive line. They were joined on the sidelines by two more starters from the defensive side of the ball.
After seeing Marcus Gilbert leave the game in the first quarter last Sunday, his reaggravation does not bode well for a quick return to action., it was always expected he would feature in the first injury report of the week. Having missed the previous three games with a hamstring injury
but it is hoped this is more of a rest day for an injury they are carrying than a long-term health concern. It is worth noting that Pouncey sat out practice last Wednesday as well with the same chest issue.,The appearance of Stephon Tuitt and Maurkice Pouncey among those not participating on Wednesday was something of a surprise
Having missed the game in Week 6, it is unlikely he will suit up on Sunday., the sooner Ramon Foster can return to practice the better his chances of playing against the Cincinnati Bengals. Should he still be unable to resume training on Thursday

Did not participate: OG Ramon Foster (Thumb), C Maurkice Pouncey (Chest), Stephon Tuitt (Back), OT Marcus Gilbert (Hamstring), ILB Vince Williams (Hip)
In fact, it’s kind of expected., given the way Pittsburgh’s defense is designed
But the linebacker currently leading the team in sacks isn’t someone you would generally think of as a pass rusher.
After recording two sacks on the same series in last Sunday’s 19-13 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs, inside linebacker Vince Williams now leads the team with four. Three of those four sacks have come in the past two games.,Authentic Alejandro Villanueva Jersey, which improved the Steelers to a 4-2 record
For a player who leaves the field at times on obvious passing downs and entered the season with 2.5 career sacks, nobody would have thought Williams would be the team leader. And Williams,Womens Jordan Berry Jersey, isn’t afraid to let his teammates hear about his success., one of the more vocal Steelers both in the locker room and on the field
“He’s rubbing it in every day,Authentic Mike Mitchell Jersey, who is second on the team in pressures but has yet to record a sack.,” said defensive end Stephon Tuitt
some of the players who would have been considered the team’s better pass rushers entering the season haven’t really gotten going just yet.,That has to be concerning to Pittsburgh’s opponents. While the Steelers have 20 sacks
whose team visits Pittsburgh on Sunday.,Authentic David DeCastro Jersey,That’s what concerns Cincinnati head coach Marvin Lewis
“They mix and match,” said Lewis, their guys are producing.”,Authentic Ramon Foster Jersey, crediting defensive coordinator Keith Butler. “Keith does a great job of pairing them together. Who is going to be the rusher based on a particular pressure and changing it up. Right now, Williams is doing a great job of rushing from inside linebacker and winning his matchups. They’re doing a great job. (Rookie) T.J. Watt has gotten off to a great start. It’s a matter of who’s at the tip of the sword. When your number is called
Anthony Chickillo,Authentic Marcus Gilbert Jersey, said that is exactly the case., who is tied with Watt and defensive end Cameron Heyward with three sacks each
” Chickillo said of the team’s linebackers. “I feel like any of us can get there. Any of us can make that play. I feel comfortable with any of us.”,“I feel like our whole room is capable of making plays
Like Williams, Chickillo’s opportunities to rush the passer have been limited. But he’s taken advantage when given the chance., who did not practice Wednesday with a sore hip
something that has been a key ingredient in the team’s pass defense. The Steelers have allowed 153.5 yards per game through the air to lead the NFL.,Nine different players have recorded sacks for the Steelers
Inside linebacker Ryan Shazier joins Tuitt with no sacks, despite getting pressure on opponents’ starting quarterbacks. James Harrison, didn’t record his first until Kansas City’s final possession last Sunday. Harrison had only played seven snaps in Pittsburgh’s first five games before getting 15 against the Chiefs., the team’s all-time sack leader
Lewis expects to see Harrison this week as part of the Steelers’ dynamic pass rush.
” said Lewis. “(He just has) tremendous spirit. I love him when he’s not playing against us.”,“No one has seen James more than me
Pittsburgh knows it has to continue to bring the pressure.,Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said he is open to Harrison continuing to play. But whether he plays or not
even if they come from the talkative Williams.,And it doesn’t matter who gets the sacks
“Whoever gets the sacks, I’m happy, as long as it gets done.”,” said Heyward. “We’ve just got to hit home. We’ve got Vince getting sacks. We’ve got James getting in there. Sometimes you have a little guy like Mike Hilton getting in there. We don’t care how it’s done
Running back Le’Veon Bell was named the AFC’s Offensive Player of the Week Wednesday for his 179-yard rushing effort last Sunday against Kansas City. It is the third time in his career Bell has won the award. … The Steelers signed offensive lineman Jake Rodgers to their practice squad and released wide receiver Justin Thomas. … Center Maurkice Pouncey (chest), right tackle Marcus Gilbert (hamstring) and Tuitt (back) joined Williams on the sideline during practice Wednesday. ... Linebacker Tyler Matakevich (shoulder) was a full participant., guard Ramon Foster (back)
2 defensive starters,Steelers short 3 offensive
Maurkice Pouncey (chest),Womens Alejandro Villanueva Jersey, Ramon Foster (back), Stephon Tuitt (back) and Vince Williams (hip). Tyler Matakevich (shoulder) fully participated in practice., Marcus Gilbert (hamstring)
Tuft's injury was the only one not previously known. He was limited last Wednesday with a quadriceps injury.
Foster sat out Pittsburgh's 19-13 win against the Kansas City Chiefs. Gilbert left the game in the first half having reaggravated the Week 2 hamstring injury that kept him out of game action in Weeks 3-6.
Mike Tomlin said Tuesday that Vince Williams has a chance to return in time to face the Bengals.
He was recorded crutching down a hallway at Arrowhead Stadium Sunday. The starting inside linebacker walked the locker room without crutches Wednesday.

though Jesse James said Hubbard moving to tight end against Kansas City forced Pittsburgh to abandon some three-tight end personnel sets the team had installed for Sunday's game plan.,Authentic Jordan Berry Jersey,Gilbert was not seen in the locker room after practice. Chris Hubbard has started in his place
B.J. Finney replaced Foster in the starting lineup at left guard.
Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Martavis Bryant reportedly wants a trade after a sluggish start to the 2017 season.
Bryant missed all of the 2016 season while serving a suspension for violating the league’s substance-abuse policy and has now missed 20 games total during his career to suspensions. However, he’s proven to be an explosive playmaker with a penchant for the long touchdown.,Womens Mike Mitchell Jersey, when he’s been on the field and healthy
that hasn’t really materialized since his return and there have been some clear issues earning back the trust of Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and the organization. And that appears to be why he’s requesting the trade.,Unfortunately for Bryant
It’s difficult to say exactly what Bryant, a former fourth-round pick,Womens David DeCastro Jersey, but the baggage he carries ultimately impacts his value significantly., might be worth on the trade market. He’s unquestionably talented
However,Womens Ramon Foster Jersey, there are three teams that stand out as potential trade destinations. So let’s take a look at how he might fit with each., in looking at depth charts around the league
Miami Dolphins and New York Jets. All four teams are within at least a game of the Patriots and the Bills could certainly use some additional playmaking firepower for the stretch run.,The Buffalo Bills are coming off a bye week in the thick of a race for the AFC East with the New England Patriots
and the genesis of those struggles is int he passing game. No wide receiver on the Bills roster has more than 10 catches through five games.,Womens Marcus Gilbert Jersey,The Bills are 27th in scoring offense and 31st in total offense to this point
In fact, the Bills’ No. 1-ranked scoring defense has kept them competitive., running back LeSean McCoy (27 catches) and tight end Charles Clay (20 catches) have been far and away the two most prolific pieces in the Bills passing attack. Luckily
would the Steelers want to trade him to an AFC team in the playoff hunt?,Adding Bryant would add an element of explosiveness to the offense they lost when they traded Sammy Watkins and being in a playoff race with plenty of targets coming his way has to sound pretty good to Bryant. The holdup
