Mike Hilton isn't worried about having a short week following the Titans game

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak in the Titans organization, the NFL is in the process of moving the Steelers-Titans game which was originally scheduled for Sunday at 1 p.m. in Nashville to either Monday or Tuesday.


It's business as usual for the Steelers with the altered plans in the scheduling, as they're treating this week just like as they prepared for their Week 1 game against the Giants on Monday night.


"It's no different," Mike Hilton said. "Everybody saw the situation that happened over the last couple of days. We knew as a team this is what we were coming into this season. We know on our end we are going to do everything we can to stay healthy and safe. We let everything else take control. We can only focus on getting prepared for the Titans."


With preparing for Thursday night games after a Sunday game or coming off a Monday night game, it's not like the Steelers have never had to prepare for their next opponent on a short week.


"We have played on Sunday and turned around and played on Thursday. We have played in Monday night games. We have been down this road before," Hilton said. "We know we have the coaching staff and the type of team that will stay focused and be locked in no matter the game week situation. We know it won't be any different and we won't let it get off our focus of trying to go in and get a W."


The Steelers host the Eagles on Oct. 11 at 1 p.m. following their game against the Titans, which as mentioned will be played on either Monday or Tuesday.
