Steelers’ WR Corps ready to start season without Markus Wheaton

The Pittsburgh Steelers explosive offense will be without one of their top weapons in slot receiver Markus Wheaton, but the groups says they shouldn’t miss a beat when they take the field.

Antonio Brown is the front man with veteran Darrius Heyward-Bey as second option for Ben Roethlisberger.

Second-year players Sammie Coates and Eli Rogers are expected to step in and up as well.

“We’re one of the rare (receiver) groups that everybody from ‘AB’ down to the practice-squad guys, we’re going to be coached up and work hard every single day because you never know when your number’s going to be called,” Heyward-Bey said, via Tribelive.com.
“Anybody can have a big game. We all know ‘AB’ is going to have a big game. The rest of us just all have to come in when our number’s called.”
