Jarvis Jones told to hit weight room
by Larry Hartstein |

Steelers outside linebacker Jarvis Jones was quick enough as a rookie, but "was overwhelmed at times" and has been told to "hit the weight room," reports the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. Jones failed to hold onto a starting job and finished with 41 tackles and a sack in 14 games.

Jury out on Jarvis Jones
by Larry Hartstein |

Steelers outside linebacker Jarvis Jones didn't live up to his draft status, tallying one sack and getting benched for poor play. The jury is still out on last year's 17th overall pick, according to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.

Jones, expected to start in 2014, finished with 41 tackles and four passes defensed in 14 games.

by Marty Gitlin |

Linebacker Terence Garvin, who made his first start in Week 16, won't make his second on Sunday. He is the lone Steelers player ruled out for the game against the Browns. Fellow linebacker Jason Worilds (abdomen) is questionable while the other injured are probable.

They are guard David DeCastro (back), linebacker Jarvis Jones (illness), defensive end Brett Keisel (foot) and wide receiver Markus Wheaton (foot). All were full participants in Friday practice.

Steelers 'not dissatisfied' with benched rookie Jarvis Jones
by Marty Gitlin |

The Steelers are not dissatisfied with linebacker Jarvis Jones despite his benching, according to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.

Jones barely played Sunday in Oakland and has been used infrequently after starting four games. Mike Tomlin explained his removal from the lineup by saying he was struggling with details. But linebacker Keith Butler yelled at Jones on the sideline last week after he lost contain on Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor.

Despite that, Butler claimed he is still high on Jones. "We are not dissatisfied with him," Butler said. "It is nothing like that. He is going to be a good player for us. Right now we are going to do what we can to win ballgames, and whatever that takes is what we are going to do."

Jones explained that defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau wants him to be more "technically sound."
