The Steelers have struggled at running back and on the offensive line for a couple of years now.  They thought they had found the answer at running back when they drafted Le'Veon Bell.  Unfortunately for them, they will not be able to find out if he is the answer for six weeks because of an injured foot.

That means, of course, that he will be sidelined when the Titans head to Pittsburgh to play the Steelers in week one.  That is one less thing the Titans defense will have to worry about in week one, but it probably doesn't matter with as bad as this defense looks currently.
