The Steelers returned to their winning form against the Chiefs and look to stay perfect against the AFC when the Jets come to town.
While the team recovers from their latest victory and puts the Jets plan in motion we’ll be busy looking for mentions of your Black & Gold so we’ve got you covered. Here’s your Steelers Morning Huddle for Wednesday, Oct. 5th.
There is a laundry list of injuries on the Steelers roster right now. As Tomlin explained in his Tuesday presser, some decisions might have to be made in terms of roster spots to accommodate for such injuries.

Senquez Golson and Cody Wallace are both on the 53-man roster but neither have seen any action so far this season; practice or otherwise. Tomlin talked about those two players being candidates for the Injured/Reserved List depending on how the rehabilitation goes for some of the guys.
"“Those things are always a subject of discussion when you’re faced with additional injuries when you come out of a game. I’m not ready to make that judgment at this time. We’re going to let the totality of today’s rehabilitation be concluded and then assess where we are before we consider such possibilities.” – Mike Tomlin"
The future is here
So this is a real thing. Uber, the ride sharing service, decided last month that Pittsburgh is the best city to test out their self-driving cars. They came to this conclusion because between the horrible roads and unpredictable weather they figure if these cars can make it here they can make it anywhere.
How many pumps are too much?
Tomlin was asked if he feels the need to have a good sit-down with Antonio Brown about his tendency to collect unsportsmanlike penalties for his various pelvic moves in the end zone. Tomlin doesn’t want Brown to tone down his celebrations as much as he wants the NFL to explain themselves.
ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler has his comments on what he wants some clarity on from the NFL.
"“We have to get some clarity in terms of what’s legal and what’s not. I know he doesn’t want it to be a negative thing. He wants to provide positive energy for us and entertain our fans. But we have to get detailed clarity on what he can and cannot do. You’ve got to acknowledge some guys are followed more closely than others. You saw that last night with Odell Beckham. AB is probably one of those guys and he probably needs to respond accordingly.” – Mike Tomlin"
That basically translates to we need to know how many pumps of AB’s crotch can he give the crowd before it’s a flag and/or fine? I need to be in charge of these things.
