Steelers Daily Links: Tua to Play vs. Bengals, Chargers Falling Apart

Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Taogvialoa will play on Thursday night, the Los Angeles Chargers injury woes are piling up and the Pittsburgh Steelers continue to give back to the community.

🏈 Tua Tagovialoa dealt with back and ankle injuries in his Week 3 game after taking a hit that caused the NFLPA to investigate the Dolphins for putting him back in the game, but he will play against the Cincinnati Bengals on Thursday night.

🏈 Chargers defensive end Joey Bosa will have groin surgery, joining star left tackle Rashawn Slater on the shelf. Quarterback Justin Herbert is also hurt, but playing through it as the 1-2 Chargers struggle through the early part of their season.

🏈 Steelers The Steelers are the only team in the league without a run of at least 20 yards or a completion of at least 40 yards. The Steelers have punted on 50% of their possessions, which is the highest rate in the league. In addition, Pittsburgh is averaging 122.0 fewer yards per game than their opponent, ahead of only the Texans. So, yeah, the offense has been downright awful.

🏈 Steelers Through three games, no Steelers wide receiver has scored a touchdown. The last time that happened for the Steelers was in 2001.

🏈 Steelers According to Football Outsiders, in Cleveland territory last week, Mitch Trubisky was 5-of-11 for 18 yards with more completions that lost yardage (2) than first downs (1).

🏈 Steelers Albeit without T.J. Watt, the Jets will have their hands full on Sunday with the Steelers’ defensive front, as they have three starting-caliber offensive tackles on injured reserve. Zach Wilson, who will be making his season debut, doesn’t deal with pressure well, either. According to Rich Hribar of Sharp Football, Wilson ranked dead last in completion percentage when pressured last year and was 41 of 42 in success rate.

🏈 Steelers Cam Heyward continued his acts of kindness on Wednesday by donating toys to Angels’ Place and spending time with the kids and parents. More on Cam’s Kindness Week and other Steelers players giving back.
