I hear you, but let me counter with:
It just about as difficult to win eight of the next fourteen without one's starting RB.

If that's the case, then why are you worried about him being in there for the first two games at all??? If the RB doesn't matter, if the Steelers have just as much chance of winning the first two games with or without him... then, as I originally said, rest him.
In other words, either way, resting him makes the most sense.
