    Tomlin's thoughts on first preseason game

    Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said Thursday that he hasn't decided which quarterback he will start in Saturday's preseason game against Detroit. But Tomlin did acknowledge that he is considering not playing Ben Roethlisberger at all in the game.

    If Roethlisberger doesn't play, Byron Leftwich would get the start.

    [HIGH-LIGHT][/HIGH-LIGHT] Stefan Logan and Emmanuel Sanders will handle the kickoff return duties, while Logan and Antonio Brown will be the punt returners.

    Tomlin said that Logan must earn his spot on the team as a return man.

    Antwaan Randle El likely won't be used in either capacity because Tomlin said he knows what Randle El is capable of.

    [HIGH-LIGHT][/HIGH-LIGHT] While Tomlin wouldn't rule any players out of Saturday's game at this point, he did single out second-round draft pick Jason Worilds as somebody who is healthy but unlikely to play.

    Tomlin feels Worilds has missed too much practice time to just throw him into action.

    The Steelers' starters will play only eight to 12 snaps -- about two series -- and Tomlin wouldn't say whether Roethlisberger or Byron Leftwich would start.
