NFL Investigating Steelers for Using Deflated Football - Sports Gossip
Deflategate 2?

The Steelers are at the center of another possible controversy, but this one doesn’t have anything to do with the National Anthem.

The team is being accused of using a deflated football during Thursday’s preseason game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

According to a report by Yahoo! Sports, the NFL released a statement saying the ball in question was 'defective.'

“All footballs were in compliance with NFL rules following the pregame inspection process and all proper procedures were followed. In the third quarter, a football that was found to be defective was removed from play and will be sent back to Wilson for review.”

Just what the NFL needs, another ridiculous controversy to take attention away from the game.
