NFL's most aggressive quarterbacks: Big Ben loses crown

Inspired by conservative passer Alex Smith, Football Outsiders created a metric to find the anti-Smith. Who was the NFL's most aggressive passer on third down in 2016? Probably not who you'll guess.

Le'Veon Bell among the Steelers players who disapprove of the hit on Odell Beckham on Monday Night Football: "literally just seen the hit on Odell," Bell tweeted Tuesday. "we need a rule change or somethin..."legal"...yes, but if u have eyes at all u can see it was dirty.."

Steelers offensive depth chart for Colts game...Le'Veon Bell and Maurkice Pouncey labeled as out as of today. Fitz Toussaint holding onto No. 1 RB job. His chances to make the team are good regardless of whether James Conner moves up depth chart.

James Conner on his big workload Sunday: "I enjoy running the first football...This is what I asked for."

Impressive 64-yard punt return touchdown by RB Trey Williams - burst through middle, cut left and carried the punter into the end zone. Williams doesn't have an inside track on the 53-man roster, but he's got open-field wiggle and showed it in camp.

James Conner with a second drop as a receiver on third down. He's shown good hands in camp.

With Steelers starters out after unspectacular first half, the corners up are Coty Sensabaugh, Mike Hilton and rookie Brian Allen. The Steelers could use solid work from this crew.

Jeremy Fowler ESPN Staff Writer 

After limited but promising camp work, the Steelers were eager to see James Conner in game action. So far, Conner (five carries for 13 yards) looks athletic enough but dropped a pass for an easy first down and is eager to bounce outside, resulting in a few short gains. He has power and should use it.

Martavis Bryant shrugs off an earlier fumble with 23-yard gain down the sideline. Notches big play in first game action in nearly 19 months.

Steelers NT Javon Hargrave being evaluated for a possible concussion. He's been productive up the middle so far this preseason.

Steelers sitting four starters on defense but still far from crisp on opening drive as Falcons drive 91 yards on 10 plays for an easy touchdown. Steelers looked a step late on most plays, including a slant to Marvin Hall over the middle inside the 5-yard line.
