As for rookie running back Le’Veon Bell, don’t look for him to make his NFL debut this week in primetime, as hasn’t even resumed individual drills yet. The Steelers have downplayed the severity of Bell’s foot sprain, but every indication suggests he’s still at least 2-3 weeks away, and in the meantime, the team signed Jonathan Dwyer to add some much-needed depth at RB.

For now Isaac Redman is the projected starter entering the Monday night showdown.

The Steelers have never started a season 0-2 under seventh-year coach Mike Tomlin, but injuries have forced them into a precarious position, and they are having to break in new center Fernando Velasco against a defense that is led by tackle Geno Atkins and is particularly strong on the interior of the line.

This should be fun to watch.
