Pittsburgh Steelers: NFL investigated deflated footballs in preseason opener

Pro Football Talk reported Friday morning that the NFL is investigating the Steelers for deflated footballs in the third quarter of Thursday’s preseason opener. Howard Eskin of WIP, who was working on the Eagles’ broadcast, said the football was “like a marshmallow.”

Rookie Mason Rudolph was in the game at quarterback in the third quarter, when the Steelers were allegedly using deflated footballs.

Former Steelers quarterback Charlie Batch took to twitter to share his disdain for the report, calling it “Fake News.”

What a bunch of crap. Ive been a part of the @steelers organization for over 15 years.
