Wednesday food for thought
The Steelers are going to have their hands full with the Colts on defense Sunday.
Not only has Indianapolis allowed just four third down conversions in 41 attempts in their past four games, they have 21 sacks.
Amazingly, the Colts have gotten those 21 sacks from 11 different guys. The Steelers have 10 sacks as a team.
@ Of Indianapolis' 19 touchdown passes this season, 14 have gone to the running backs and tight ends.
That doesn't bode well for the Steelers.
Though Pittsburgh has allowed just 10 touchdown passes this season, six of those have gone to opposing running backs and tight ends.
@ Marcus Gilbert, Steve McClendon and Ryan Shazier did not practice for the Steelers on Wednesday, but they did have a surprise partial participant in cornerback Ike Taylor.
Taylor, out the past four weeks with a broken forearm, was able to go through some position drills and did some running today.
A timetable hasn't been set yet for his return, but he's getting close.
