Steelers OC: 'Feasible' Mike Wallace Can Be Ready Week 1

The Pittsburgh Steelers' offensive coordinator Todd Haley believes Mike Wallace has a chance to be ready Week 1 against the Denver Broncos.

Wallace has talked about probably being a little tired after his first few practices with the team, so he'll need to work off the rust before contemplating playing in the season opener.

Despite needing some time to get readjusted, Haley thinks Wallace can potentially make it back in time, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

"You're talking about a guy who's a wide receiver, a pass-catcher," Haley said. "It's not a running back or someone who has to be in the action of the game. I think it's feasible he's ready to go when we start this thing up."


With Wallace in the fold, Pittsburgh will have a bevy of options to employ, including Emmanuel Sanders and Antonio Brown on the outside.

"It definitely helps everyone having him back because a guy like Mike can take the top off a defense and is helping us get open underneath," Brown said.
