The Steelers can be the top seed in the AFC playoffs if they win while the Patriots lose to the Jets, but one of the team’s starters said Thursday that Pittsburgh won’t be playing two of their top offensive players. Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and running back Le'Veon Bell were both listed as limited for non-injury reasons in Thursday’s practice and right tackle Marcus Gilbert said that they will both be more than limited on Sunday. “We’ll have Landry Jones in there,” Gilbert said, via Tim Benz of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. “We wont have Ben. or 8-4 [Antonio Brown, who is dealing with a calf injury]. Or Le’Veon Bell.” Center Maurkice Pouncey (hip) didn’t practice while defensive end Cameron Heyward was also limited for reasons unrelated to an injury.
