Linebacker Challenges for Steelers: The Steelers face uncertainties in their linebacker lineup, recently adding Tyler Murray and preparing Mykal Walker and Tariq Carpenter for upcoming games.
Injury Setbacks: Season-ending injuries to Cole Holcomb and Kwon Alexander have depleted the Steelers' linebacker depth in the past two weeks.
Practice Squad Additions: Tyler Murray joins Walker and Carpenter on the practice squad, complementing active roster starters Elandon Roberts and Mark Robinson.
Green Dot Communication: With Alexander and Holcomb injured, the responsibility of the "green dot," or play communication on the field, shifts to Elandon Roberts, assisted by Mykal Walker.
Walker's Experience: Mykal Walker, a veteran, has prior experience running the green dot during his time with Atlanta, making him a valuable asset for the Steelers.
Mark Robinson's Progress: Robinson, in significant action against the Packers, believes he has improved since last year and looks forward to continuing his progress.
Facing Tough Opponents: Robinson, accustomed to facing teams like the Ravens known for physical play, is eager to showcase his abilities even if he's unsure if he'll be called upon.
Adaptation to Green Dot Role: Both Walker and Robinson are adapting to the green dot role, understanding its importance in the Steelers' game plan.
