Steelers Week 2 Depth Chart Has Jarvis Jones Listed As Co-Starter
The Pittsburgh Steelers have released their second depth chart of the 2013 season and it includes some notable changes.
Rookie linebacker Jarvis Jones, who played nearly half the snaps in the opener against the Tennessee Titans, is now listed as the co-starter at right outside linebacker alongside Jason Worilds. Jones registered one tackle on defense for a stop Sunday as he tackled Titans running back Chris Johnson in the backfield for a loss after coming off the edge unblocked.
With center Maurkice Pouncey now out for the season with a torn ACL and MCL, second year offensive lineman Kelvin Beachum is currently listed as the starter. That could change very soon, however, as the Steelers signed Fernando Velasco on Monday to eventually start. Velasco is currently listed as the backup.
With inside linebacker Larry Foote now lost for the season with a torn biceps, the Steelers have listed Kion Wilson, who replaced Foote late in the game Sunday, as the starter alongside Lawrence Timmons. Rookie draft pick Vince Williams is now listed as the backup to Wilson at the BUCK position.
Running back Jonathan Dwyer was re-signed on Monday, but he remains buried on the depth chart behind Felix Jones, who is listed as the backup to co-starters Isaac Redman and Le’Veon Bell.
