02:54 PM ET 09.02 | Running back Felix Jones joined the Pittsburgh Steelers just a few weeks ago after the team completed a trade with the Philadelphia Eagles to bring the former first-round pick across the state and he will already be making his impact felt when the team opens their season against the Tennessee Titans on Sunday. According to reports, Jones is expected to get the start over Isaac Redman, who was previously expected to hold down the No. 1 job while Le'Veon Bell recovers from his mid-foot sprain.

They're in for a helluva disappointment. He's never been close to even trying for his potential.

Maybe Otis knows better, but I believed he failed a physical once going to training camp Dallas.

He's not going to be #1 but he's still a serviceable back.

Coulda, woulda, shoulda.

We Steeler fans have grown accustomed to disappointing running backs ever since the Bus retired.

I guess Mendenhall and Redman never made it into Steeler lore.

To be honest, his career has gone longer than I expected already.

Playing a part-time RB?!?!? Why not Bro!

Best of luck, Felix! Use that speed, brau.

He'll only get the start cause Bell is out and Redman may not play.

Some guy who couldn't make the Eagles roster is going to be your starter?

Please take a moment to consider and realize just how bad the Eagles roster is right now. Yeah... that's going to be your starter.

Pittsburgh must be in some dire straits.
