As Steelers coach Mike Tomlin often says, the standard is the standard.

For now, when it comes to Joey Porter, Steelers officials say the statement is the statement.

Arrested Sunday night in South Side and charged early this morning with assault, resisting arrest, trespassing and disorderly conduct stemming from the incident, Porter was released on bail but was not seen at the Steelers practice facility Monday. Some players met with the assembled media in the team locker room, but all claimed the legal situation concerning the organization’s outside linebackers coach is not a distraction as their playoff run continues.

“We’re a mature team,” said outside linebacker Anthony Chickillo. “We’ve got one goal in mind, so we're focused on that."
