Steelers | Felix Jones to see more opps
Fri, 20 Sep 2013 10:30:29 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers offensive coordinator said the team will try to get RB Felix Jones the ball more in Week 3 against the Chicago Bears. "I thought he did a good job on the carries he had," Haley said of Jones' effort in Week 2 against the Cincinnati Bengals, when he ran 10 times for 37 yards. "He found the holes that were there. We need to do a better job of creating some space for him because he does look like he has some ability if we can get him into some space." The offensive line will use more of their zone blocking scheme this week.

A weak offensive line and a tough matchup against the Bears isn't a good combination for Jones this week. The move to more of a zone blocking scheme should be good for Jones in the short term, though, until Le'Veon Bell (foot) makes his return.
