05:08 PM ET 09.03 | When the Pittsburgh Steelers kick off their regular season campaign against the Tennessee Titans at Heinz Field on Sunday, the team's first-round pick linebacker Jarvis Jones will be coming off of the bench as part of the right linebacker rotation. It really comes as no surprise to see Jones starting off in the back-up role. After all, that is how it has been all preseason long with Jason Worilds getting the start. However, Jones has looked great during the preseason and he has shown that he is more capable of making the big plays, so if he can continue to create impact moments during his playing time, he could be placed in the starting lineup sooner rather than later.

Nope. Not gonna happen with Houston and Indy ahead of them.

Maybe, but the last rookie starter was Casey Hampton. Dick likes to work with a player for a while before he figures they are ready to start
