Here is the Steelers player participation data from yesterday’s stomping of the 49ers at Heinz Field. As you can see in the table below, the starting o-line played as an intact unit throughout the game (until the victory formation where Villanueva came in for Gilbert). QB Michael Vick put his helmet on for the first time this season.
|FB||46||Will C. Johnson||5|
On defense, S Will Allen was in for a whopping 90 plays. He hasn’t seen that many plays in a very long time. The OLB’s were pretty evenly rotated again this week. CB Ross Cockrell saw significant playing time and CB Brandon Boykin was eased in later in the game. Most likely due to being hampered by injury earlier in the week.
