While the scheduling uncertainty is hard to deal with, Steelers DL Cameron Heyward had no complaints about Pittsburgh’s date with the Ravens being pushed to Tuesday. Short-week games are hard on players, particularly vets like Heyward. And the Steelers already had their bye week eaten up by other COVID-19-related postponements. This gives them a little extra time to rest. 

“I needed it, so I’m not going to complain about it,” Heyward said via ESPN’s Brooke Pryor. “We had some guys that had nicks and bruises that could use the rest. Whether it is taking care of your body, spending time with family, getting extra preparation, this is a week we can take advantage of it, so I thought we did that.”
