Steelers' Blount replaces Archer on kick returns

PITTSBURGH (AP) Rookie Dri Archer is out and veteran LeGarrette Blount is in for the Pittsburgh Steelers on kickoff returns in a change meant to boost its special teams results.

The Steelers rank next-to-last in the NFL in average starting field position after kickoffs and 30th in average yards per return.

The Steelers (4-3) also conducted more live reps in practice to simulate game conditions as they prepare to face the Indianapolis Colts (5-2) on Sunday. But the most drastic change was choosing the bruising Blount over the speedy Archer to return kicks.
