Dane Jackson

One of the interesting questions now with the game moved back one day is whether or not Rasul Douglas will be able to play this week. He was dealing with a knee injury suffered last week against the Dolphins and did not practice at all. However, he was listed as questionable for this game and now with an extra day, it certainly helps his chances to play.

If he is not able to play, then Dane Jackson should return as the starter opposite Christian Benford for this game. Jackson started six games in the middle of the season after Tre'Davious White's injury and before the Bills would trade for Douglas.

The fourth year corner had good moments during that stretch, like the game against the Bengals when he had 3 pass break ups, but he ultimately was the opposing teams targeted in coverage. Last week against the Dolphins, Jackson came in to replace Douglas and looked probably the best he did all season.

The Pittsburgh Steelers don't have a dynamic passing attack but have good wide receivers in Diontae Johnson and George Pickens that can be difference makers. The cornerbacks are going to be tested and if Dane Jackson has a solid performance, it will be a big boost for the defense.
