Steelers Depth Chart Update: Predictions For Active Players In Week 1 Vs. Broncos

As of Tuesday, the Steelers depth chart was set in wake of their Week 1 game vs. the Denver Broncos.

There really aren't any particular surprises, as many of the players listed deeper on the roster will be used in certain situations against Denver.

Offensively, at least, that seems to be Todd Haley's modus operendi. It also isn't something written in stone. Not only can this fluctuate throughout the week, but it won't necessarily be the order of substitution.

An obvious example of this is the fact RB Rashard Mendenhall is listed as the first team running back.
