Wow what a difference two weeks makes. Not too long ago Felix Jones was on the Philadelphia Eagles roster bubble, likely to be cut when they were trimmed down.

Jonathan Dwyer’s release from the Pittsburgh Steelers was one of the surprising moves in the NFL in teams’ attempts to get down to a 53-man roster. Dwyer was expected to be a utility back in the Steelers ground game, which looks stouter now than it has in some time.
Ryan Wilson of CBS Sports was able to give us some insight as to why the Steelers may have made the move:
By Matthew Marczi According to a Tweet today from Dale Lolley, Pittsburgh Steelers running back Isaac Redman said that he could have suited up and played in the last two preseason games, but “was held out by coaches”.

Pittsburgh Steelers rookie Le’Veon Bell has been ruled out of Sundays season opener but head coach Mike Tomlin says that he could participate in practice this week. That’s pretty impressive as just a few weeks ago it was thought he’d miss significant time with a Lisfranc injury, which turned out to be just a sprained ankle. If Bell does indeed practice this week I’d say...
The Pittsburgh Steelers, one of the NFL’s most dominant franchises in recent history, have been on the decline over the past few seasons.

In 2012, Pittsburgh finished third...
