Steelers Eagles Preseason Offensive Participation Chart & Personnel

Below are the offensive personnel packages, play counts and participation chart for the Pittsburgh Steelers week 1 preseason game loss on Thursday against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Player Notes:

Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger only played one series, 15 plays, as did center Maurkice Pouncey. Running back Isaac Redman and tight end Heath Miller also played only on the opening drive as well.

It should be noted that wide receiver Derrick Williams appears to be ahead of Toney Clemons in the battle for the 5th wide receiver spot, as Williams entered the game before Clemons did. Marquis Maze also entered the game before Clemons, but only played in the slot as a third receiver. Wide receivers Jimmy Young, David Gilreath and Paul Cox all failed to play a snap on offense.

Kelvin Beachum played both left guard and left tackle and Chris Scott played both right guard and right tackle. Trai Essex played both tackle spots, while Doug Legursky played both center and right guard.

Personnel Grouping Notes:

Before suffering his knee injury, David Johnson lined up at fullback 6 plays on the opening drive and Miller lined up as a fullback twice. 19 plays in total featured a player lined up at the fullback position. The offense also never rolled out any empty backfields and always had at least 1 tight end on the field at all times. On only 2 plays did the offense use 3 tight ends and both of those plays were runs.
