Over the past couple years, the Pittsburgh Steelers were more often than not able to turn to Jason Worilds whenever they needed an injury replacement at outside linebacker, either for James Harrison or LaMarr Woodley.
This year, he was supposed to take the next step and become the starter, but after beginning the season with the title, it was just a week later that the team decided to go with rookie Jarvis Jones. Since then, Worilds’ playing time has been sporadic at best, but, overall, the quality of that play has been ‘above the line’.
Now, Jarvis Jones is listed as questionable to play this Sunday for the big tilt against the Baltimore Ravens after being diagnosed with a concussion on Wednesday. Even if he is medically cleared to play, he may be limited to special teams duty due to the fact that he had to be held out of most practices during the week.
Therefore, the Steelers may well be turning to Worilds once again to make the start in Harrison’s old spot. Fort...

Pittsburgh Steelers safety Troy Polamalu made a valiant effort to time the snap on an extra point block attempt against Baltimore during the fourth quarter of Sunday's game at Heinz Field. Polamalu made a nice leap over the Ravens center, but he was just a bit too early. Still, Polamalu gets an 'A' for effort on this play. H/T BR. Visit us at holdoutsports.com...
Even though the Pittsburgh Steelers didn’t make the playoffs in 2012, Charlie Batch did lead them to a dramatic upset of the eventual Super Bowl-champion Baltimore Ravens in early December.
When Shaun Suisham’s field goal sailed through the uprights as time ran out in Baltimore, Batch and Ben Roethlisberger embraced for at least 30 seconds. They knew they were nearing the end...

Yesterday, we highlighted some of the struggles that Pittsburgh Steelers rookie starting outside linebacker Jarvis Jones had while facing the New York Jets, which saw him being fooled on misdirections or missing tackles that led to big games.

In the aforementioned article, however...

The Pittsburgh Steelers’ win over the New York Jets last week puts more juice into the first Ravens Week of the 2013 season.
Had the Steelers started 0-5, their only motivation Sunday would have been to stick their biggest rival with a loss that could come back to haunt them when they’re fighting for a playoff spot.
Now, a win over the Ravens would improve the Steelers’ record...
Steelers rookie outside linebacker Jarvis Jones diagnosed with a concussion Wednesday has been listed as questionable for the game Sunday at Heinz Field against the Baltimore Ravens.
Jones did not take any repetitions Friday in team drills. Instead he went through a light exercise regimen one of the necessary steps involved for concussed players to be cleared to play.
Troy Polamalu has been showing flashes of his old self these past few weeks, and it reprises his former role of best defender in the game when he absolute crushes Ravens wide receiver Tandon Doss coming across the middle.
As is always the case with Polamalu, he took a blow while giving one as well. Kudos to Doss for hanging on as well.
A few more hits like that, and this thing...

Yesterday, we took a look at some of the lowlights exposed in tight end Heath Miller’s game against the New York Jets, during which he struggled to block on screen passes and also relinquished a sack. Yet he also managed a season-high in receiving yards that game, so it clearly could not have been all bad, so now it is time to take a look at some of the positives...
