Six Steelers open camp on PUP list

The Pittsburgh Steelers have gathered in Latrobe for training camp. Six members of the team will begin the journey on the physically unable to perform list.

They are safety Damon Cromartie-Smith, nose tackle Casey Hampton, linebacker James Harrison, running back Rashard Mendenhall, tackle Max Starks, and linebacker Jason Worilds.

Hampton and Mendenhall are both recovering from torn ACLs. Starks, who re-signed with the Steelers last week, also is working his way back from an ACL tear.

Worilds had offseason wrist surgery, and Harrison missed time during OTAs with some sort of leg injury.

Teams have no obligation to provide any specific injury information until the first week of the regular season. The six players on the PUP list can emerge at any time during training camp or the preseason. If not ready to go by the final roster cuts, the players would land on the PUP list for at least six weeks of the regular season.

I thought it was interesting at the presser that Tomlin got asked about OLB depth and he mentioned he's excited to get Chris Carter some reps. The way he said it, it seems like Tomlin might be high on Carter. That surprised me a bit.

These guys can be activated from PUP at any time throughout the preseason (but if they remain on the PUP at the start of the regular season, then they must miss the first 6 weeks). It's possible that Harrison, Worild, or Cromartie-Smith could just be excused from the conditioning test and the first few practices for now, and may be back next week.

I heard Tomlin say in his press conference that Harrison's knee has been giving him some problems but that he will be fine and they are just being precautionary by putting him on the PUP list.

• Harrison, who is on the physically unable to perform list because of a sore knee, said the back injury that required a pair of surgeries within a month last year is fine. “Last year at this time I was six month from two back surgeries. I feel good now,” Harrison said.

These injuries compound with age and become harder to come back from. Good call keeping him out of the fray for a bit. He still has the camaraderie of camp, but not the physical abuse. It's not like Tomlin, LeBeau and Butler don't know what he can do already.

The only problem with an idle James Harrison is he has more time to talk about not peeing on Goodell if he catches fire ;)

I agree. I thought he made that very obvious in the presser. I like Carter and I hope he does well. We need some youth and depth at OLB. Worilds is always hurt and this might be Harrison's last year or 2.

Are we sure we know what the 2012 version of James Harrison can really do?????????? Injuries have a greater effect in your thirties than in your twenties. I think Woodley is really going to have to have his best season because I'm not counting on JH having double digit sacks.

How serious is Jason Worilds injury???

That guy was injured during his Vtech days and he has continued that tradition of injuries while playing for Steelers. Can Steelers get one injury-free season from this guy?

Sean Lee was definitely a better choice.

NOTES -- Jason Worilds, the backup at both outside linebacker positions, is expected to be out two to four weeks because of a left wrist injury. Worilds is one of six players on the physically-unable-to-perform list and cannot practice until he is removed from the list. ...

Tight end Heath Miller (ankle), punter Jeremy Kapinos (back) and Ta'amu (foot) did not practice. ... The afternoon practice today, slated for 2:55 p.m., is open to the public. ... Tomlin, when asked about the condition of running back Jonathan Dwyer, who hasn't always reported to camp in top shape: "He's better than he's been."

Sean Lee was definitely a better choice.

Sean Lee tore his ACL while at Penn State, had to deal with some nagging injuries during training camp during his rookie year, and dislocated his wrist last season.

Can the Cowboys get one injury-free season from this guy? ;)
