Below are the defensive player, play counts and participation chart for the Pittsburgh Steelers week 2 game against the New York Jets.
Nose tackle Casey Hampton played three times the amount of snaps that Steve McLendon did in this game and I found that a little surprising.
Larry Foote missed two plays due to being dinged up and that is when Brandon Johnson got his 2 snaps. Ryan Clark missed 1 snap after the hit on Santonio Holmes and Will Allen replaced him.
LaMarr Woodley was off the field for the 5 plays that the defense ran the 4-2-5 Big Nickel package.
By our count the defense was in base for 31 of 57 charted snaps.
Ike Taylor, Ryan Mundy, Lawrence Timmons and Keenan Lewis played every snap on defense.
