Steelers Rumors: Ben Roethlisberger, Le'Veon Bell To Sit Preseason Opener

Our Steelers rumors update for August 7th:

Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin told reporters on Friday that Le'Veon Bell, Antonio Brown, Maurkice Pouncey, Heath Miller and James Harrison will be held out of the team's Hall of Fame Game clash with the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday night.

"We obviously want to see a lot of young people," Tomlin said. "It is going to be a significant game for Landry Jones, he is going to play a lot. I don't have a predetermined snap count that we expect him to have. He could play the entire game, he could play a majority of the game and our intentions are to get a good look at him."

Tomlin added that more veteran will likely get the night off, but that will depend on "healthy numbers at their respective positions."

That will not include veteran safety Will Allen, as the back end of the secondary has been riddled with injuries as of late.
