Steelers rookie Jones released from hospital, cuts announced

first_imgPITTSBURGH (AP) – Steelers rookie linebacker Jarvis Jones was released from the hospital on Sunday after being treated for a chest injury.The team said Sunday that tests were negative, but did not say what tests the first-round pick from Georgia underwent or whether he’ll play in the preseason finale Thursday at Carolina.Jones was hurt when he fell on the ball at the end of a third-quarter interception that was overturned against the Kansas Chiefs.He was on the turf for several minutes, but walked off on his own power. He was wheeled out of Heinz Field on a stretcher late Saturday night.Pittsburgh opens the season Sept. 8 at home against Tennessee. Jones has been sharing time with Jason Worilds at right outside linebacker.In other team news, Felix Jones hopes to make enough of an impression against the Panthers to earn the opportunity to play against the Titans.Acquired from the Philadelphia Eagles for linebacker Adrian Robinson on Friday afternoon, Felix Jones said he arrived in Pittsburgh at 11:15 that night.With Le’Veon Bell, LaRod Stephens-Howling and Isaac Redman missing Saturday’s game because of injury, Jones tied with Jonathan Dwyer for the most carries on the Steelers with eight. Jones had a team-best 29 yards rushing in the 26-20 overtime loss.“I felt like the coaches were just trying to see where I was at right now, and I felt good at it,” said Jones, a 26-year-old veteran of 64 games and 2,728 yards. “I felt comfortable, and I felt like I was doing what I was supposed to do.”Unhappy with the production of Redman, Dwyer and Rashard Mendenall last season, Pittsburgh allowed Mendenhall – like Jones, a first-round pick in 2008 – to leave via free agency and drafted Bell in the second round.But Bell has been nagged by a knee injury throughout much of training camp, and a foot injury he sustained in a preseason loss to the Washington Redskins Aug. 19 has left his status for the beginning of the regular season in doubt.Redman and Stephens-Howling were not in uniform Saturday because of less significant injuries. That left an opening for Jones to seize a dwindling chance to earn NFL carries.“We had an opportunity to acquire a guy that’s a known commodity in the NFL,” Pittsburgh coach Mike Tomlin said. “We got him in here at the 11th hour. I thought he did a nice job in terms of preparing and being able to do something for us in the game. We’ll continue to get to know him.”Jones took a crash course in the playbook over the day leading up to his Steelers’ debut and said it will take him “a few days” to completely grasp it.Jones returned kickoffs for a Pittsburgh team that hasn’t settled on what players will handle its return duties. He had a pair of 7-yard carries – but at the end of the first one, Jones ran out of bounds on third down with 1:18 to play in the first half.The Chiefs had enough time left following the ensuing punt for their only touchdown drive of regulation.“I just got through and tossed into the fire like I’ve been here for a while,” Jones said, “It’s something I’m used to. I’ve been doing this for a few years now. I’ve just got to adjust on the fly and keep pushing.”Jones had mostly been a backup over his final two seasons in Dallas, accumulating 402 yards rushing on 111 carries last season.Amid reports he’d lost his burst, the Cowboys let him go and he had reportedly fallen down the depth chart with the Eagles.“I still think I’ve got it,” Jones said.His chances for making the Steelers’ season-opening roster improved Sunday evening when third-year running Baron Batch and rookie Jeremy Wright were among the team’s first round of cuts.Batch and linebacker Stevenson Sylvester were among the bigger names let go by the Steelers. Sylvester had appeared in 41 games over the past three seasons with Pittsburgh.Former Alabama quarterback John Parker Wilson was also cut, along with offensive tackles D’Anthony Batiste and Mike Farrell, wide receivers David Gilreath, Tyler Shaw and J.D. Woods, cornerback Ryan Steed and tight end Peter Tuitupou.To get to the NFL-mandated roster limit of 75 before Tuesday afternoon’s deadline, the Steelers also placed rookie defensive end Nick Williams on injured reserve, linebacker Sean Spence on the physically unable to perform list and guard Justin Cheadle and cornerback DeMarcus Van Dyke on the waived/injured list.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org Jarvis Jones (AP Photo/File)last_img read more

Steel Sensations…Steelers get the win in a tale of two halves

first_imgPittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown (84) looks to block running back Le’Veon Bell (26) as Bell scores a touchdown against the Cleveland Browns during the second quarter of an NFL football game on Sunday, Sept. 7, 2014, in Pittsburgh. Pittsburgh won 30-27.(AP Photo/Don Wright)It was certainly a tale of two halves in Pittsburgh on Sunday afternoon as the Black and Gold dominated the Celveland Browns in the first half, 27-3, but were thoroughly beaten in the second half, 24-3.Fortunately, the Steelers three second half points came as the clock hit zero and broke a 27-27 tie and enabled them to get out of the stadium with a victory to open the season.Big Ben Roethlisberger threw for 278 of his 365 yards in the first half and Antonio Brown, LeVeon “Cheech” Bell and LaGarrete “Chong” Blount scored touchdowns as the team appeared to put the game in cruise control. They smashed through Cleveland’s defense; making it look like the game would be a laugher.  Markus Wheaton looked every bit the part of a number two receiver and even Justin Brown made some nice catches as well.The Steelers defense found their way into the backfield early and often, limiting Brian Hoyer to under 40 yards passing and the rushing game for the Browns was nonexistent in the first half.  It truly appeared that with the Ravens game looming just four days away, the Steelers would be able to rest a lot of their starters in the fourth quarter and pick up the easy ‘W’.Yet, that’s why they play the full game. The second half felt like the two teams switched uniforms as the Browns scored two touchdowns in the first five minutes of the second half and went on a 24-0 run to tie the game.The Steelers defense looked sloppy, couldn’t tackle, couldn’t get to Hoyer, couldn’t cover any of the receivers and couldn’t stop the run. Frankly, they got embarrassed.The offense came out and looked flat, ran conservative and predictable plays and generally couldn’t move the ball at all. It was as if the coaches went into halftime with the 24 point lead and told the players the game was over and there were no need for adjustments at all.Fortunately the Steelers had the ball last and were able to move the ball deep enough into Browns territory to kick the game winning field goal but the second half was laughable and alarming.The win is certainly the one number that counts the most but they have to get better in a lot of facets of the game if they want to beat the good teams on their schedule because they certainly didn’t look good in beating one of the bad ones.NEWS, NOTES and Other Stuff:Game Ball: The game ball goes to Big Ben, who completed 23 of 34 passes for 365 yards, one TD and one INT. He also led the game winning drive as time expired.Play of the Game: Well, at least the most talked about play is the Antonio Brown flying kick to the face of Browns Punter Spencer Lanning.  It’s debatable if it was on purpose or not but it got the crowd fired up.Reality: Tomlin, LeBeau and Haley were all outcoached. They put on a display in the first half but when the Browns made a furious run to tie the game, the Steelers fell flat on their face. They made no in game adjustments and had the game been five minutes longer, the Browns would have won.Worth Mentioning: Should the Steelers consider moving to the road whites for home games in hot weather? That may have played a factor in slowing them down in the second half, that black absorbs some serious heat.Gutsy Call: The fake punt in their own territory was a very gutsy call that Robert Golden audibled to and it worked.Great To See: Brett Keisel out there with a couple of tackles and a QB Hit, Troy Polamalu leading the team with 11 tackles and Jarvis Jones getting to the QB with a sack and adding six tackles total.Worth Noting: The defense did not create a turnover, something they’ll need to force in the big games to be a truly effective unit.Team: 1-0, up next at Baltimore, 0-1.Mike Pelaia hosts the website Steel Nation Association www.steelnationassociation.com- Covering the Steelers and helping Children’s Hospital All Day Everyday.
