It's hard to say if entrenched starters will play much, but don't think
that the Steelers game is going to be meaningless.
Besides the inevitable debut of Travelle Wharton - I can't see the team
not giving him reps - the team will likely see Domenik Hixon for the
first time. The former Giant WR has been banged up, leading many fans
and media to write him off completely. I really do believe the offense
gets better with him there.
As well, there's no doubt it'll be interesting to see what happens at
SS, where Mike Mitchell's starting status is in flux thanks to his
foolish behavior. The team doesn't want to start Haruki Nakamura, but
might be forced to do it. As well, the team might be locked in on
Captain Munnerlyn and Drayton Florence as starters, but the 3rd guy
appears to remain a three way race. Josh Thomas might or might not
play, Josh Norman has to work on his tackling, and DJ Moore needs to be
Jon Beason has requested to play, suggesting it'll help get him in game
TEs Richie Brockel - who started at FB this past week - and Brandon
Williams will be vying for possibly one spot, so it won't be a
meaningless game for them.
And maybe an OL or two will come to play looking to claim a roster
