Below are the defensive player play counts and participation chart for the Pittsburgh Steelers week 2 preseason game loss on Thursday against the Indianapolis Colts along with a few observations I made.
All of the main first team players saw 28 snaps and of course that was about as expected. Cortez Allen worked strictly in the nickel. Mortty Ivy saw snaps at both outside spots which leads me to believe they are giving him serious consideration of keeping him on the 53 man roster. Brandon Johnson worked strictly inside with Stevenson Sylvester out with his knee injury. Terrence Frederick once again saw most of his snaps at the nickel after Allen was done for the night.
Corbin Bryant entered the game before Al Woods this week and played triple the snaps. Rookie Alameda Ta\'amu played only 17 snaps and only in the base defense.
