    Jason Miller/Getty Images Ryan Switzer of the Pittsburgh Steelers returns a punt against the Cleveland Browns at FirstEnergy Stadium on September 9, 2018. In early September the Pittsburgh Steelers cut wide receiver Ryan Switzer, this despite his assertion that he was well on his way to becoming the next Julian Edelman, a boast that was mocked on social media. As it turns it, he became expendable after the Steelers signed WR Ray-Ray McCloud and it became obvious that McCloud was a much better kick returner. Switzer has been unemployed ever since, but today Neal Coolong, senior editor of NFL sites with USA TODAY Sports Media Group, tweeted that Switzer has had a tryout with the Cleveland Browns....

    PITTSBURGH (AP) — The pressure came from everywhere. Up the middle. Off the edge. On stunts. On good old-fashioned one-on-one domination. Still, Denver quarterback Jeff Driskel thought he’d figured things out late on Sunday afternoon, leading the Broncos down to the Pittsburgh 15 with less than two minutes to go. The door for a stunning upset on the road had swung wide open. It slammed shut in less than 3 seconds, or the time it took Steelers safety Terrell Edmunds to rush in untouched to get Pittsburgh’s seventh and final sack on Sunday. Edmunds’ second career sack preserved a 2-0 start and offered another wrinkle in a seemingly endless string of exotic packages conjured up by defensive coordinator Keith Butler....
    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — A vaccine rollout is one step closer and could happen by the end of the year.

    PITTSBURGH (AP) — Judging by the tone of Ben Roethlisberger’s voice, it was hard to tell if the Pittsburgh Steelers are 2-0 or 0-2. No matter how the questions were framed following a 26-21 victory over Denver on Sunday that gave the Steelers their best start since 2017, the club’s longtime quarterback kept turning each answer into a referendum of sorts on his play. While quick to heap praise upon his young wide receivers — including rookie Chase Claypool and budding second-year star Diontae Johnson — Roethlisberger believes he needs to knock off whatever rust might remain from his injury-marred 2019 quickly. “I didn’t connect with guys when they were open,” Roethlisberger said. “I just didn’t play well enough.” Never...
