Jarvis Jones, Bud Dupree show up at critical time for Steelers

PITTSBURGH -- Jarvis Jones and Bud Dupree had answers for the chatter that veterans James Harrison and Arthur Moats are holding down the starting outside linebacker jobs for the Pittsburgh Steelers. Jones made an impressive stutter-step move on a left tackle to get free on a sack in the first half of the Steelers' 24-19 win over Green Bay on Sunday. Dupree, who got into a heated skirmish with teammates at training camp, affected two plays while in with the starters, stopping a run on the edge and joining a safety by committee. He also produced a solo sack against the second team. Both players needed a good showing, especially Dupree, a 2015 first-round pick who didn’t flash much in the first two preseason weeks. Jones looks more comfortable after a long recovery from a wrist injury.
