Sometimes a change is made due to performance on the field
Steelers place safety Nat Berhe on injured reserve Youth Stephon Tuitt Jersey , promote Brian Allen from practice squad The Pittsburgh Steelers secondary is a work in progress, and it continues to evolve throughout the course of the 2018 regular season. This is the case for offeseason free agent acquisition Nat Berhe, who was placed on Injured Reserve (IR) Tuesday after injuring his pectoral muscle in the Steelers’ Sunday night loss to the Baltimore Ravens in Week 4.With Berhe heading to IR, the Steelers promoted cornerback Brian Allen to the active roster.Allen spent his entire rookie season on the active roster in 2017, although often a gameday inactive, but was released at the end of training camp only to be re-signed to the practice squad days later.The Steelers’ secondary now has a different feel to it. Morgan Burnett is often injured, Mike Hilton is working his way back from injury, and Coty Sensabaugh and Artie Burns are having a battle at the outside linebacker position opposite Joe Haden. Berhe Youth Ramon Foster Jersey , who is a safety, played primarily special teams, but had been thrust into the lineup with the absence of Burnett. It should be noted how the Steelers didn’t promote rookie Marcus Allen, a safety, but chose Allen instead. Allen does have great size and speed for the cornerback position, but has always been considered extremely raw and inexperienced.Stay tuned to BTSC for the latest on this situation, and others surrounding the Pittsburgh Steelers.Teammates believe Le’Veon Bell will show on Wednesday, but believe they are fine either way The big news coming out of the 412 area code on Monday wasn’t the team’s most recent depth chart, or their first practice preparing for the Cleveland Browns on Sunday. No Womens Antonio Brown Jersey , it was who wasn’t there which made headlines. With Le’Veon Bell missing in action, his teammates, again, were forced to answer questions surrounding the All-Pro running back, and when he might grace the organization with his presence. While fans have made their stance on the situation very clear, with a large majority boarding the Anti-Bell fan bus, several current and former players spoke about how Bell missing Monday’s workout wasn’t a big deal, and how Wednesday would be viewed as the first ‘official’ practice of the week.Ultimately, players said all the right things when talking about Bell’s absence Womens JuJu Smith-Schuster Jersey , and some went as far to predict Bell will return on Wednesday of this week. This is a conversation team captain Maurkice Pouncey had with a reporter during player availability MondayTongueouncey would go on to tell Jeremy Fowler of ESPN: “He’ll be here Wednesday.

Count on it.”Other players were less than thrilled to be talking about it, including starting guard Ramon Foster.“No sense in talking about it,” he told Fowler. “We’ve got other things to focus on. Cleveland is a good team. Our game plan has to be A-1. And we’re on the road. We’ve got other things to worry about than other guys’ money.”With many fans wanting the Steelers to rescind Bell’s franchise tag, making him a free agent, it should be noted there is almost zero chance of that happening. The Steelers would receive nothing in return for him and wouldn’t get any production from one of the best running backs in the league. Those who want him traded should also know this isn’t possible until Bell signs his franchise tag, which hasn’t been done yet. The only moves the Steelers could make, but won’t, are when Bell decides he wants to report to the team and sign his franchise tag tender.The interesting part of this entire mess, which will die a very quick death once Bell arrives Youth Marcus Gilbert Jersey , is the confidence the team has in players like Stevan Ridley, and especially James Conner. Whether they could carry the load in place of Bell is anyone’s guess, but they might just get the opportunity to do so this Sunday in Cleveland if Bell doesn’t show on Wednesday, as many predict.Stay tuned to BTSC for the latest news and notes surrounding the Steelers as they prepare for the Browns this Sunday.
