Preseason schedule, other notes

The Steelers' preseason schedule is as follows.

Date Time Opponent/TV
TBD............................. TBD........................ PHILADELPHIA/KDKA-TV, FSN Pittsburgh
Thursday, Aug. 14 ....... 7:30 p.m. ........... at Buffalo (Toronto)/KDKA-TV, FSN Pittsburgh
Saturday, Aug. 23........ 8 p.m. .......................................................... at Minnesota/CBS
Thursday, Aug. 28....... TBD .............................. CAROLINA/KDKA-TV, FSN Pittsburgh

Though there is no date and time for the first game, you can figure that it will be Thursday, Friday or Saturday of the preceeding week, which would mean it will be played around Aug. 8 or 9. That would mean the team's training camp will open 14 days prior to that for those of you making plans on coming to Latrobe.

© The Bengals finally had it with Chris Henry on Thursday after his arrest for assault, releasing the oft-troubled former West Virginia star.

Chad Johnson is also an unhappy camper and is asking to be traded. But with Henry now gone, that's unlikely to happen.

In fact, despite needing extensive help on their defensive front, the Bengals may now be forced to use a high draft pick on a wide receiver, something few thought would be needed a couple of seasons ago.

Character matters.

© In case you hadn't heard, the assault charges against Steelers linebacker James Harrison were dropped.

Harrison voluntarily entered domestic abuse counseling and the alleged victim in the case wanted no further retribution.

There is a good chance Harrison will not face a suspension from the league because the charges were dropped.
