Ravens’ LB Patrick Queen assessed his performance so far this season, following an overtime loss to the Raiders and a one-point win over the Chiefs.

“I feel like in the [Las Vegas] game, I played good; I felt pretty good about it,” Queen said, via “I feel like [against] Kansas City, I played well but could have played better. I feel like it wasn’t the standard that we require, so I feel like I can improve this game.”


Steelers’ OC Matt Canada was impressed that veteran QB Ben Roethlisberger was willing to take the blame for the team’s loss to the Raiders in Week 2, yet Canada himself was also willing to shoulder some of the responsibility.

“I think I need to be better,” Canada said, via “We lost the game. The plan was what it was. We thought we had matchups. We thought we had things right. I told the offense, ‘We didn’t win, I’ve gotta, we’ve gotta do better.’ We gotta win, that’s all that matters is winning.”

  • Ian Rapoport reports that Roethlisberger will play against the Bengals with a left pectoral injury and is currently not listed on Pittsburgh’s injury report.
  • Steelers’ linebackers T.J. Watt and Alex Highsmith will both be out this Sunday against the Bengals, meaning that Melvin Ingram and Jamir Jones will both get their first starts for Pittsburgh. Also out for Week 3 is WR Diontae Johnson who is dealing with a knee injury. (Brooke Pryor)
