Steelers WR Martavis Bryant Cleared to Participate in All Preseason Activities

Yesterday, Steelers General Manager Kevin Colbert released this statement below via the team's official website Steelers.com. Le'Veon Bell, the NFL's best all-around running back, still hasn't signed his franchise tag tender and reported to camp. Since the contract deadline passed on July 17, Bell essentially has a whole year to hammer something out with the Steelers. According to many reports from training camp, Engram has worked well in the red zone. It read, "3 More Yards".

If worst case scenario becomes reality the Steelers would be faced with some serious decisions.

Despite playing in just two games last season, Darian Thompson is now the starting free safety over Andrew Adams, who performed well in Thompson's absence previous year. But still, a similar cause is percolating throughout Steelers Nation, and it's no surprise that it involves a whatever-it-takes approach to defeating the New England Patriots.

The New York Giants are coming off a solid 11-win season and hope to make the playoffs back-to-back years for the first time since 2007-08. But the idea that the Steelers should openly identify beating the Patriots as their goal for 2017, that the team should be building its roster and devising its schemes to beat the Patriots would be the wrong approach. But as good as the G-Men were on defence, they were the exact opposite on offence.

The Steelers under Head Coach Mike Tomlin have won 32 regular season games in the last three years and are poised for another double-digit win season in 2017 (Sports Interaction over/under win total is 10.5). The positions typically cited as being the ones to benefit most from rotations are running back, defensive line, and outside linebacker.

It is positive, as 62 investors sold BAC shares while 560 reduced holdings. 45 funds opened positions while 112 raised stakes. The financial services provider reported $0.46 EPS for the quarter, beating the Zacks' consensus estimate of $0.43 by $0.03.

Pre-tournament favourite Rory McIlroy also laboured to a 72 after finding water with his tee shot at the driveable par-four 14th. At that point, he looked a lot closer to a weekend off than the final leg of the career Grand Slam.

In fact I went home to stay in Teddington, that's where my family are, and I was like, "Nah, I need to get back in the hotel". Farah admitted this last big track race will be emotional but he is careful these days not to reveal too much of himself.

The 4th Round pick out of Tennessee will get the start and the bulk of the playing time at quarterback in the preseason opener because Roethlisberger is old and doesn't need to play in stupid preseason games, and Landry Jones has an abdominal injury. I'll side with the Giants and the reasonable chalk here.

While Friday's game will be broadcast in local markets, you can still check it out thanks to NFL Game Pass.

Of course, the National Football League never actually wanted to reduce the number of games played.

We'll get to see this week for the first time if the intern coaches helped. He is a physical and aggressive player that will help make the Giants run defense even better than it was a season ago.
