While Keisel looked spry for a player who turns 36 in a few weeks, the first unit allowed points for the fourth consecutive week.

Steelers running backs Le’Veon Bell and LeGarrette Blount - a week removed from being cited on marijuana possession - started the game on the bench but played sparingly in the first half. The team plans to discipline both players, but Tomlin stressed he would not reveal the punishment.

Either way, Bell and Blount will be heavily involved this fall. The circumstances required for Landry Jones to see playing time the rest of 2014 are probably too farfetched to even ponder, but the former Oklahoma star didn’t exactly produce a compelling argument for the Steelers to keep three quarterbacks on the active roster behind Roethlisberger and backup Bruce Gradkowski.

Jones declined to speculate on whether he’ll still have a job next week.

“I have no idea,” he said. “This business, being cut, staying here, that’s so far out of my control I don’t even like thinking about it.”
