Thursday Night Football: Eagles vs. Steelers, insert weed jokes

The Philadelphia Eagles host the Pittsburgh Steelers in some Thursday Night Football action. The game kicks off at 4:30 p.m. PT on NFL Network.

The biggest story heading into this game is the dual arrests of Le'Veon Bell and LeGarrette Blount. The two were charged with marijuana possession, and Bell was also charged with DUI. I don't believe either has a previous offense under the personal conduct policy, and I'm not sure where either stands with the drug policy. More than likely, neither will face league punishment until next season, similar to what we saw with Dwayne Bowe. Blount flew with the team to Philadelphia, while Bell apparently paid his own way to get to the game.

The 49ers host the Eagles in Week 4. Given that this is the third week of preseason action, we should probably see as much from the Eagles as we'll see all preseason. If you see anything of particular note, feel free to mention it in the comments. I don't imagine Chip Kelly shows off too much, but we'll see.
