USA Today power rankings Chiefs take a monumental climb

The Pittsburgh Steelers running back missed Week 1 of the 2018 National Football League season due to a holdout over his contract situation.

Superman wears No. 7 for the Steelers and other than his right elbow swelling up like a balloon between now and 1 p.m. on Sunday, Ben Roethlisberger will start against the Chiefs in the Steelers' home opener. Bell has been a no-show this season because of contract disputes, while Roethlisberger is battling injury and was listed earlier this week as questionable to play against the Chiefs.

Dobbs practiced with the first-team in the two days in which Roethlisberger missed practice, but returned to backup duties on Friday. Star running back Kareem Hunt was held to 49 yards on 16 carries.

Although the Steelers surely would love to have Bell on the field, they didn't really miss him in their Week 1 tie with the Cleveland Browns. JuJu Smith-Schuster added five receptions for 119 yards on an ugly effort by Roethlisberger, who completed 23 of 41 passes for 335 yards, a touchdown and three interceptions.
