The Pittsburgh Steelers will be without another offensive weapon Monday night against the Washington Redskins.
The team announced Saturday that No. 2 receiver Markus Wheaton will miss Week 1 with a shoulder injury.
Wheaton didn't participate in practice this week.
With Wheaton out, Sammie Coates will get more time opposite Antonio Brown with Eli Rogers playing in the slot. Darrius Heyward-Bey should also earn more snaps than originally planned. As the story pointed out, it's a big opportunity for Coates, who flashed during offseason practices, but struggled in the preseason.
