The Steelers have their first preseason game under their belts and have some things to work on going forward.
While the team gets back to camp and gets ready to work on the rest of the preseason we’ll be busy looking for mentions of your Black & Gold so we’ve got you covered. Here’s your Steelers Morning Huddle for Sunday, Aug. 14th.
Preseason games don’t necessarily tell you about the state of the team since the roster is far from the final 53-man roster and the opposition isn’t game-planned for. One thing preseason games can tell you about is certain players; where they’re at and how far they have to go to get regular-season ready.

It’s the ankle, I swear
Steelers coach Mike Tomlin wasn’t about to address reports about Ladarius Green’s recurring headaches. The tight end the Steelers signed during free agency to replace the retired Heath Miller but he has been unable to participate thus far due to an ankle injury.
ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler reminds us that Green was placed on the PUP list at the start of training camp because the surgically repaired ankle wasn’t yet recovered. But this week reports came out that Green was suffering from recurring headaches stemming from past concussions and that was keeping him sidelined.
After Friday night’s preseason 30-17 loss to the Lions Tomlin wasn’t about to address the discrepancy.
"“he’s rehabbed nicely, he’s gotten better in that area, but he’s not ready to go. I’m not going to respond to reports from unnamed sources.” – Mike Tomlin"
They’re totally trying to be less dumb
So the Bengals extended their epic streak of years without a playoff win this past January by essentially shooting themselves in their own feet. *Looks over at Joey Porter* So, this season they’re trying to not let that happen again.
PFT’s Darin Gantt cites the Albert Breer report on The MMQB on how the coaching staff for the Cincinnati Bengals are intentionally goading the players to make sure they can properly handle themselves.
They’re actually doing this. I wonder if one of them is trying to like play the role of Peezy. Like dramatic reenactments. I’d actually love to see that.
