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 8: vs Indianapolis Colts

Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. Ben Roethlisberger bounced back from a blah outing at Cleveland (21/42 for 228 yards passing, one TD and one interception thrown, with two sacks taken for -7 yards) to post 23/33 for 265 yards passing, two TDs and zero interceptions with two sacks taken for -16 yards vs. Houston last week. Antonio Brown (13 for 9/90/0) and Le'Veon Bell (eight for 8/88/1) were his main receivers last week, with Martavis Bryant (five for 2/40/1) also bringing down a TD. Lance Moore (2/12/1 receiving) caught a TD from Brown (1/1 for three yards and a TD). Pittsburgh had fun beating the Texans last week. The Colts' pass D is ranked fifth in the NFL in net yards allowed per game (214.4), with eight passing scores balanced by six interceptions (tied-14h in the NFL) and 21 sacks (tied for third). The Steelers have allowed 20 sacks this season (29th in the NFL) - you can expect Roethlisberger to go down at least a few times during this game. Last week, Cincinnati was utterly dominated by the Colts in this phase of the game (18/38 for 103 net yards, with four sacks taken for -23 yards), while Ryan Fitzpatrick was sacked five times for -16 yards two weeks ago (15/23 for 196 net yards, one TD and zero interceptions thrown). Advantage, Indianapolis.
