Chiefs at Steelers

Chiefs at Steelers

When: Tonight, 7:30 p.m.

TV: WTAJ, KDKA, NFL Network

Preseason records: Steelers (1-0); Chiefs (1-0)

Moving on: The Steelers will begin the painful process of moving on following the death of wide receivers coach Darryl Drake. Drake’s passing left the Steelers in mourning and the young group of receivers the 62-year-old led missing more than just a coach. “It’s hard to get back to the game you love because he’s not out there telling you what to do, he’s not out there yelling,” Steelers receiver Ryan Switzer said. “So it’s hard. But it’s part of our profession, and it’s something we have to do. And something that coach Drake would want us to do.”

Check him out: First-round pick Devin Bush will get a chance to show his eye-opening debut — when the inside linebacker made 10 tackles against Tampa Bay — was a taste of things to come.

The stars will be out: The Chiefs head to Pittsburgh with quarterback Patrick Mahomes and the rest of their starters expected to play most of the first half. That includes a number of guys who have missed practice this week with an illness, such as wide receiver Sammy Watkins and defensive end Frank Clark.

Remember him?: Newly signed cornerback Morris Claiborne could also get on the field for the first time with Kansas City, even though he will be suspended the first four games of the regular season for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy.
