Roethlisberger, Bell, Brown Among Those to Sit Sunday at Hall of Fame Game

Buffalo Bills v Pittsburgh Steelers

Why risk a major injury to a player that clearly is going to have a huge impact on how far the Steelers do or do not go in 2015? That’s the premise of why it appears four of the biggest Steelers on offense will be sitting Sunday night at the Pro Football Hall of Fame game in Canton, Ohio.

Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, center Maurkice Pouncey, running back Le’Veon Bell and wide out Antonio Brown will all NOT play in the Steelers preseason kickoff against the Minnesota Vikings.

While sure it’s a blow to those that are playing decent money to go see their favorite team take the field for the first time Sunday night, it’s also the smart and right thing to do, and if one of those players were injured and couldn’t play for a solid amount of time, then it would go down as one of the worst decisions to have played them in the first place.
