Eagles at Steelers: 3 storylines to watch

Three storylines to keep an eye on as the Eagles face the Steelers.

1. How many reps for Shady?

LeSean McCoy was limited in the team’s last practice. Andy Reid said it
was because he wanted to evaluate the other backs on the roster. Expect
McCoy to carry the load in the first quarter, then give way to a healthy
dose of Ronnie Brown and Dion Lewis.

2. King’s throne.

King Dunlap is starting at right tackle, but it will be interesting to
see how long of a leash he is on. Austin Howard has shown flashes, and
has seen work with the ones in camp. Evan Mathis is also working his way
up.



3. Sloppy seconds.


The Steelers hired a new secondary coach, Carnell Lake, after getting
burned by the Packers in the Super Bowl. Now, let’s see if they — or
anyone in the NFL — can keep up with DeSean Jackson, who will be seeing
his first action of the preseason.
