Here’s a thumbnail sketc of what to expect tomorrow night when the Eagles play the Steelers:

Carson Wentz is still rehabbing from offseason knee surgery and Nick Foles has been dealing with muscle spasms in his neck, so expect plenty of Nate Sudfeld and Joe Callahan running the offense.

One player who might see a fair share of handoffs is Donnel Pumphrey, who is trying to make his mark among Eagles running backs.

On defense, Kamu Grugier-Hill is trying to prove he can be an capable replacement for the departed Mychal Kendricks.

Pittsburgh showed its faith in Temple’s Tyler Matakevich (above) and Jon Bostic when they didn’t draft an inside linebacker, but which one will get the starting job? Both players have showed flashes of top-of-depth-chart worthiness in camp so far and the battle is expected to rage on.

Mason Rudolph will begin his campaign to try to wrestle away the backup QB job from Landry Jones in his quest to prove he can take over the job when Father Time finally tolls on Big Ben.

If we even get a smidgen of evidence that could happen someday for Rudolph, it’ll be a good preseason debut. Antonio Brown likely won’t play as he deals with an undisclosed injury.
