PITTSBURGH (Newsradio 1020 KDKA) - A Philadelphia sports talk host claimed a football used by the Steelers in Thursday night's pre-season game was under-inflated but the NFL says all correct procedures were followed.

On Twitter, Howard Eskin said the ball he saw after an incomplete pass looked “like a marshmallow.”

NFL Spokesman Michael Signora tells 93.7 the Fan Steelers Insider Ed Bouchette, of the Post-Gazette, that all proper procedures were followed with the footballs in yesterday's game.

There was one that was defective and removed from play.

"All footballs were in compliance with NFL rules following the pregame inspection process & all proper procedures were followed. In the 3Q, a football that was found to be defective was removed from play, will be sent back to Wilson for review.”
