    The Insider on Pittsburgh Sports Training camp update

    http://www.theinsideronpittsburghsports.com/

    Like what they have to say about Timmons and Mendenhall:

    12:44 p.m. A lot of emails coming in about Willie Reid. Word is Reid got into a skirmish with Antony Smith which is nothing new when it comes to Smith. He's always head hunting in camp. Speaking of Reid, he will battle Dallas Baker for the #5 spot. Right now I'd say Baker has the edge. What Reid has going for is he returns kicks and if he can resemble the player he was in college then he may earn himself a roster spot but he has do have a very good camp and perform very well in the preseason games.


    12:35 p.m. Timmons and Mendehall looked very good in drills this morning. One source told me Mendenhall has the look of a superstar. Takes pride in what he does. Timmons seems more confident and you could see it on the field. He has also showed up to camp in great shape.
    12:20 p.m. On the offensive line (1st team) the Steelers went with LT Smith, LG Essex, C Mahan, RG Simmons and RT Colon. Many expected to see Mahan at LG today and Hartwig at center but that wasn't the case.

    11:35 a.m. - Word is Kendall Simmons, Max Starks and Willie Colon appear to be in excellent shape. Troy Polamalu is being listed as day to day. Could see him practicing tomorrow but Wednesday is a likely target date. Polamalu did watch the first session on the sidelines. LG Chris Kemoeatu was not on the field and the Steelers are being very mum on his situation. There appears to be little concern about Kemoeatu's injury. Practice updates in a bit
    Here comes the BOOM!

    Essex at LG in place of injured Kemo?!

    I know it is just camp but still very intriguing.

    They probably just don't want to hand it to Hartwig...earn it type of deal (or at least I hope)

    If you are going to use a tackle at guard, I would have preferred to have them move Colon inside to LG while Kemo is out, putting the $7,000,000 man back in the starting lineup at RT. Then by the time Kemo comes back, perhaps Colon has already impressed the coaches enough at LG, and Kemo can battle with Simmons at RT (I think the mauling Kemo is better fit at RG than as a LG that should be more athletic than Kemo's 344 lbs.). I think the best combination of guys would be: Smith-Colon-Hartwig-Kemoeatu-Starks. You have veteran depth along the interior line with Simmons and Mahan plus the upstart Stephenson. The depth at tackle is obviously weaker with the likes of Essex, Hills, Capizzi, and Parquet, but if something happened to Smith or Starks, you could just move Colon back to tackle and insert Simmons as a starting guard again like last year.
