Injury
Cortez Allen
News
Steelers cornerback Cortez Allen would like to become a shadow corner and follow around the opposing team's best receiver, reports the official team website. He would be replacing Ike Taylor in that role if it happens in 2014. 

"Of course," Allen said. "I've always liked to challenge myself. I've always wanted that challenge just to see how I match up. And it's always fun to go against talent like that. Ike's done it before me. Hopefully, one day I'll be in that position to be the level of player that he is. It's a day-by-day process. I'm just trying to learn as much as I can from him and the guys around me. Wherever I am in the defense, wherever they see fit, what's best for the team, then that’s where I'll be. I've never been a guy who said, 'I want to play on this side or that side.' We’re both capable of playing either side. And we're both capable of playing anybody we face. It's always us. It's never them."

"He has looked healthy right from the get-go, looks kind of like the old Heath," Roethlisberger said via the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.

LeGarrette Blount
News
Call it an off night for the Steelers run game Saturday against the Bills. Le'Veon Bell started and played the first eight snaps over two series for the Steelers but had just 11 yards on four carries and no catches. After getting three straight handoffs in the second series, Bell was replaced by LeGarrette Blount who played on eight straight snaps over two series himself but he actually did worse than Bell, totaling zero yards on three runs which included snaps with the second-team offense.

Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin insists their respective workloads haven't been determined yet and that Saturday's action was just a step in the process.

"We're trying to work both guys, but at the same time we want to get them enough extended action that we know them as fatigue sets in. Playing consecutive plays is a big part of that," Tomlin said. "Both guys are going to get their share but I want both guys to have the lead dog mentality, and in order to have that and do that you gotta see them for spurts of extended period of time. But don't read too much into it, we're just still growing and developing in terms of our division of labor. I like both guys, obviously, and both guys are going to be big components of why we're successful."

In a quick chat with CBSSports.com after the game, Bell said he's looking forward to learning from and sharing with Blount.

"He's going to keep me fresh, I'm going to keep him fresh," Bell said of Blount. "It's definitely important to stay fresh. Last year there were some runs I wasn't as fresh as I could have been. I could have maybe got more yards. LeGarrette, Dri [Archer], those guys are definitely going to help me out and I'm going to help them out as best as I can."

So does that mean Bell would be upset if the coaches gave Blount goal-line snaps?

"They probably will do that, that's probably what will happen," Bell said. "He's a big, strong guy, so when they put him in, he's in. We hopefully get that touchdown and I'm glad. I don't care."

Bell's comment is interesting because Blount isn't known for being the short-yardage/goal-line type. That doesn't mean he can't fit the role, of course. Blount's the bigger back of the two. Bell's versatility should put him ahead of Blount in terms of playing time, however. He's still rock solid as the kind of Fantasy running back you can confidently draft in Round 2, though pairing him with Blount and forming the Steelers backfield on your own roster is advised.
William Gay
News
Nickel cornerback William Gay is "underrated and underappreciated but not by the Steelers," according to the team's website. The site expects Gay, who's owed $1.5 million in 2014, to stick on the roster because "he is precisely the kind of player a team needs to contend."

Gay, 29, had 63 tackles, nine passes defensed, two forced fumbles, an interception return for a touchdown and a sack last season.

But he has a clean bill of health according to the official team website and will participate in full workouts when OTAs begin in May. 

"He's healthy and working," coach Mike Tomlin said according to the official team website. "... I don't think that we'll start from scratch. These haven't been empty days for him since he's been here with the rehabilitation process and what he's been able to do in terms of learning our system of football. I'm not going to assume that he's starting from ground zero."

If the Steelers could redo that draft pick, the paper said, "they'd draft a cornerback or another safety or a tight end, anything but a quarterback in that fourth round."

David Paulson
News
The Steelers used three tight ends Sunday at Green Bay and all of them made small contributions to the victory.

The most interesting was a 30-yard grab by David Paulson from Mat McBriar on the first possession of the second half off a fake punt. The catch led to a touchdown that put Pittsburgh ahead.

Another rare contributor as a pass-catcher who played the role of hero was Matt Spaeth, who snagged an 11-yard scoring strike from quarterback Ben Roethlisberger later in that quarter to again put his team up.

Starting tight end Heath Miller pitched in with three receptions for 17 yards.

Justin Brown
News
Steelers receiver Justin Brown has quietly been making a name for himself through the spring. This week he started taking first-team reps, working in the slot in place of Lance Moore, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported. While rookie Martavis Bryant got a little bit of work with the starters before getting pulled, Brown stayed in and spent a lot of time catching passes from Ben Roethlisberger. 

Brown's height (6-foot-3) and experience in the slot at Penn State (before he went to Oklahoma and played on the outside) are giving him an advantage in the race to land prominent playing time this season.
