Bryant McFadden has become one of the Steelers top playmakers since he has been inserted into the starting lineup in place of the injured Deshea Townsend? Will Townsend return to the starting lineup when healthy?

As long as Bryant McFadden continues to play at this level he will remain in the starting lineup. The player that could be sent to the bench is Ike Taylor, according to a source. What Taylor has going for him is Mike Tomlin is very high on him but Taylor has struggled to make plays and will need to perform well the next couple weeks to keep Townsend out of the starting lineup. As much as we hear every season that the Steelers feel Townsend is suited to be the team’s nickle back, he always finds a way to stay in the starting lineup. Ike Taylor was beat twice on 3rd and long situations against the Eagles this past Sunday.
