These Steelers, it would seem, can cure anything shy of the common cold.
No starting inside linebacker?
No issue at all. Vince Williams piled up nine more tackles in the 31-13 throttling of the Jets on yet another standard-is-the-standard Sunday at Heinz Field, raising his total to 24 over two games.
"It's what we do," Williams fairly growled afterward, evidently weary of any lingering doubts about the depth chart. "It's next man up around here. That's the rule."
No right tackle or backup right tackle?
No issue at all. Chris Hubbard, No. 74 in your program and No. 3 on your depth chart, more than held his own at No. 1 for the day, including this vacuum-seal block on the right edge for a Le'Veon Bell first down:
That's precisely by design. The play went right through him. In the first quarter, no less, before he'd had a chance to prove himself.
