Injury update: JuJu Smith-Schuster taken off the field for evaluation after a hit during running drills. The Steelers brought out a cart but Smith-Schuster walked off on his own. Was on the ground for a few minutes.

Play of the day (unquestionably): Ben Roethlisberger with a behind-the-back forward flip to JuJu Smith-Schuster for a goal-line touchdown to start 'seven shots.' The entire team wooed after the play, and Roethlisberger gave a shimmy on the way back to the huddle.

With Watt on rise, LB Harrison 'fine' with role

With rookie T.J. Watt and Bud Dupree set to be the Steelers' primary pass-rushers this season, James Harrison said he's willing to fill whatever role the Steelers need him in.

Jeremy Fowler ESPN Staff Writer 

Steelers' defensive depth chart for this week has James Harrison as a starting OLB opposite Bud Dupree, rookie T.J. Watt as second string.

Jeremy Fowler ESPN Staff Writer 

Steelers' latest offensive depth chart lists Martavis Bryant as a starter, Sammie Coates/JuJu Smith-Schuster as second-string receivers. Eli Rogers as third string is a mild surprise, though the chart doesn't reflect the slot receiver position and Smith-Schuster can play inside/out.

QB Ben Roethlisberger told 93.7 the fan this week that though he believes Le'Veon Bell can catch up with the playbook upon return, there are new wrinkles that will take time to learn. "This year it is a little bit bigger," said Roethlisberger about the playbook.

Has Le'Veon Bell already peaked?

Injuries and suspensions have prevented Bell from completing a single full season as a pro, but that may actually be a strong argument that we haven't seen his best.
