PITTSBURGH (AP) -- Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin is turning to some familiar faces to help his team snap out of its early season funk.

Kelvin Beachum will start at center next week against the Cincinnati Bengals. Beachum will replace perennial Pro Bowler Maurkice Pouncey, who is out for the season with a right knee injury.

Newly reacquired running back Jonathan Dwyer will get a chance to play after the Steelers brought him back on Monday to take the roster spot left by LaRod Stephens-Howling, who is also out for the year after sustaining a knee injury of his own.

Tomlin said there were some positives to take from Sunday's 16-9 loss to Tennessee, including the play of rookie linebacker Jarvis Jones. The first round pick could see more playing time on Sunday.
