For several players, this is truly their last chance to get off the bubble. Here's a list of who needs a big game tonight to remain in black and gold:
1. Stefan Logan, KR/WR: Logan may have set the record for return yardage last season, but he's had a poor showing this time around. With Antonio Brown, Emmanuel Sanders, and Antwaan Randle El all available for returns, the position is a lot more crowded this time around. Logan also is not a threat on offense, so his lack of versatility may cost him.
2. Mewelde Moore, RB: Moore hasn't shown much next to Isaac Redman, and is even being outperformed by rookie Jonathan Dwyer at this point. His lack of true running ability may push him off the team.
3. Jonathan Dwyer, RB: Poor conditioning is one of Mike Tomlin's pet peeves. He'll get a chance tonight to prove last week was no fluke. If he does, he should be the third back and push Moore off. If not, he should make the practice squad.
4. Stevenson Sylvester, LB: Drafted mostly for his ability to contribute on special teams, Sylvester is in a crowded linebacker corps. He hasn't been on the tips of any tongues this preseason, so tonight will be his chance to shine with the starters not expected to play long.
5. David Johnson, FB/TE: Johnson is also on the bubble thanks to the crowded backfield and the return to health of Frank Summers. Johnson is the team's third-best tight end, so his position is much less certain now that he will likely not be needed as a fullback.
6. Flozell Adams, OT: If the Steelers feel they can get better production out of a line without Adams, he won't be around. As it stands now, he should make the team. But there are plenty of younger players who'd love that spot.
7. Justin Hartwig, C/OG: Hartwig's been unseated by rookie Maurkice Pouncey, but he could slide over a spot and take over at right guard if the team parts with Adams and moves Trai Essex to tackle. Hartwig is still a contributor, but his shortcomings became apparent after Pouncey starting taking regular snaps with the starters.
