Lawrence Timmons, the Steelers inside linebacker, has not been practicing all week so this shouldn't come as a surprise, but he is out this week with a high ankle sprain. Keyron Fox will get the start in his place. Judging by Fox's play during the preseason, I don't expect there to be a major let down from Timmons to Fox and I fully expect the D to be as tough as ever vs. Tennessee. If Fox gets extended time due to a lengthy Timmons injury (you never know with a high ankle sprain) I could see him creating a controversy about who should start. Fox is that good.
In more meaningless news, the Steelers top the final ESPN Power Rankings. Check them out here. Let's hope they can finish the year at the top of the rankings.
