Inside the Steelers Locker Room: Heath Miller and Brice McCain talk upcoming Jaguars game

The Pittsburgh Steelers are looking to turn the page after their disappointing loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 4. BTSC goes inside the locker room to hear directly from the players.

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

The Pittsburgh Steelers are entering their final days of preparation leading up to the Week 5 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, and BTSC's own John Phillips went into the Steelers' locker room to talk to the players. You'll hear audio from two players who very well could be counted on to have an impact in the upcoming game in Heath Miller and Brice McCain.

Heath Miller

With the health of Markus Wheaton still uncertain, Miller will be looking to capitalize on a Jaguars' defense that has been extremely porous in pass coverage, especially against tight ends. Miller is coming off his best game of 2014 catching 10 passes for 85 yards and a touchdown in the loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Brice McCain

McCain was the defensive back that took William Gay's spot in sub packages by covering the slot receiver, and at times by covering the outside. McCain had an up-and-down game, but looks to solidify his spot in the lineup with a solid performance against a young and inexperienced wide receiving corps in Jacksonville. McCain hardly has time to get acclimated, with Antwon Blake and B.W. Webb also vying for playing time at the same position.

The Steelers travel to EverBank Field to play the Jaguars in a 1 p.m. ET game time on Sunday.
