Steelers LB Jarvis Jones ill, out for Packers game

Pittsburgh Steelers rookie linebacker Jarvis Jones will miss

Sunday’s game against the Packers with an illness.

The team says Jones came down with the illness Saturday


Chris Carter will make his first start of the year in place of

Jones. The Steelers last week also put veteran linebacker LaMarr

Woodley on injured reserve with a right calf injury.

For the Packers, Mike Daniels will make his second start of the

season at defensive end after Johnny Jolly was placed on injured

reserve Saturday with shoulder and neck injuries. Daniels and

linebacker Clay Matthews share the team lead with 6 1-2 sacks.

As expected, Matt Flynn is starting at quarterback for Aaron

Rodgers (left collarbone), out a seventh straight week.

For the Steelers, Cortez Allen will make his third straight

start at left cornerback for William Gay, who is active.
