Impressive 64-yard punt return touchdown by RB Trey Williams - burst through middle, cut left and carried the punter into the end zone. Williams doesn't have an inside track on the 53-man roster, but he's got open-field wiggle and showed it in camp.

With Steelers starters out after unspectacular first half, the corners up are Coty Sensabaugh, Mike Hilton and rookie Brian Allen. The Steelers could use solid work from this crew.

After limited but promising camp work, the Steelers were eager to see James Conner in game action. So far, Conner (five carries for 13 yards) looks athletic enough but dropped a pass for an easy first down and is eager to bounce outside, resulting in a few short gains. He has power and should use it.

Martavis Bryant shrugs off an earlier fumble with 23-yard gain down the sideline. Notches big play in first game action in nearly 19 months.

Steelers NT Javon Hargrave being evaluated for a possible concussion. He's been productive up the middle so far this preseason.

Steelers sitting four starters on defense but still far from crisp on opening drive as Falcons drive 91 yards on 10 plays for an easy touchdown. Steelers looked a step late on most plays, including a slant to Marvin Hall over the middle inside the 5-yard line.

Expect to see a lot of Eli Rogers today, both in slot and returning punts. Had an uneven camp but made a ton of high-difficulty catches.

LB Ryan Shazier looks ready to go. He even got some pre-game contact.

Source: RB Bell likely out for preseason Week 3

Le'Veon Bell is expected to stay away from the Steelers for Week 3 of the preseason, a source told ESPN, but the source would be surprised if Bell isn't back shortly after that.

One Steeler makes 'Perfect NFL Roster'

This 53-man group chosen from across the league fits beneath the $167 million salary cap. James Harrison made the team as a sub.

Plays of the day: Receivers Cobi Hamilton and Sammie Coates with back-to-back deep balls from quarterback Bart Houston. Hamilton made a slick one-headed catch against contested coverage, while Coates came back for the ball and went over the top.
