Below are the snaps counts from the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday night loss to the Chicago Bears. As far as surprises go, rookie wide receiver Markus Wheaton only played eight snaps in the game after head coach Mike Tomlin hinted last week he would see more playing time moving forward. Tight end Heath Miller played 39 snaps in his season debut and that was nearly 60% of all offensive snaps. Miller, according to Tomlin, was on a snap count. Kelvin Beachum played 16 snaps Sunday night and three of those came at left tackle in place of Mike Adams. The other 13 coming snaps were at right tackle in place of Marcus Gilbert. Defensively, rookie linebacker Vince Williams once again saw the lion's share of the work at the buck linebacker position. He played 32 snaps while Kion Wilson played just 11 snaps on defense. Safety Robert Golden played 19 snaps against the Bears as that's how many plays the Steelers defense used their quarters' package on.
