The Steelers are expected to play their starters for a full quarter, give or take a few plays. Injuries are still up in the air, as running backs Isaac Redman and Le'Veon Bell are said to be game time decisions against Washington.
How much action either of them will see is anyone's guess, and with the cut to 75 looming, it may be a good opportunity for Jonathan Dwyer to earn a roster spot in Redman's absence or limited appearance.
