Fans of the Pittsburgh Steelers really don’t have a lot to be excited about heading into Monday night’s game at Cincinnati when it comes to the running game. The Steelers were about as bad as they’ve ever been on the ground and while the Titans had something to do with that, much of it was self-inflicted. Saying the loss of Maurkice Pouncey wasn’t a factor wouldn’t be fair...

The Pittsburgh Steelers signed free agent center Fernando Velasco on Monday to replace injured starter Maurkice Pouncey, who was lost for the season Sunday in the opener against the Tennessee Titans.
