Heyward-Bey suffered a concussion in a Thursday, July 31 training camp practice. ***UPDATE - Heyward-Bey has a history with concussions, but the veteran came back later in the preseason and made the Steelers 53-man roster.

Week 5: at Jacksonville Jaguars

Mark and Joe say: Great matchup. Ben Roethlisberger did his part against the Buccaneers, with 29/40 for 314 yards passing, three TDs and zero interceptions (he was sacked five times for -26 yards). As is usual, his main targets were Antonio Brown (11 for 7/131/2), Heath Miller (11 for 10/85/1), Markus Wheaton (six for 4/57/0) and LeVeon Bell (seven for 6/46/0). To date, Roethlisberger's passing attack is ranked eghth in the NFL averaging 268.2 net passing yards per game, with six TDs vs. two interceptions thrown. It's all good in this phase of the game for Pittsburgh, folks. The Jaguars' pass D is ranked 32nd in the NFL averaging 320.8 net passing yards allowed per game, with a whopping 11 passing scores given up over four games, vs. one interception generated (next-to-last in the NFL). They do rush the passer, with 12 sacks so far (second in the NFL), but their secondary stinks, friends. Last week, Philip Rivers bombed them for 29/39 yielding 365 net passing yards and three TDs, with zero interceptions thrown (two sacks taken for -12 yards); two weeks ago the Colts racked up 33/43 for 385 net passing yards, four TDs and zero interceptions thrown (two sacks taken for -5 yards). Start Roethlisberger and your Steelers' receivers against this horrid pass D.
