Ryan Shazier injured his knee after tackling Bell during a red zone drill. He had his knee wrapped with ice and was working with the trainers.
After practice Mike Tomlin said the injury was "A little boo-boo."
I'm not liking that Shazier already got injured...hoping it's just a "little boo boo". Also not happy that Bell has been out as well.
The big news Monday was the return of safety Mike Mitchell, who was removed from the PUP list earlier in the day. Mitchell, who arrived to Latrobe with a groin injury that he apparently suffered while training prior to camp, took part in some of the 11 on 11 drills Monday.
The Steelers had a handful of players that did sit out Mondays practice, nose tackle Steve McLendon (undisclosed), linebacker Ryan Shazier (knee), linebacker Jarvis Jones (groin), wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey (concussion), Maurkice Pouncey (undisclosed) and cornerback Ike Taylor (coaches decision).
Thats three straight practices that McLendon has missed. As for Taylor, that was his first day of not practicing. Heyward-Bey has not practiced since last Thursday.
The Steelers are starting to get several players back that have missed a considerable amount of time as linebacker Jordan Zumwalt (groin) and tight end Rob Blanchflower (ankle) were both able to work in some capacity on Monday. The same goes for nose tackle Hebron Fangupo (undisclosed), who sat out Sundays practice.
I hate to say it...but I think the "undisclosed" ones are just being out of shape and trying to avoid the PUP list. Yep, Pouncey and McClendon.
Black N' Gold Til' I'm Dead N' Cold...
We don't have any cheerleaders but we do have a few of these \m/...
Rara, I doubt you have any idea about what kind of shape Pouncey and McClendon are in, but I'm willing to hear your explanation. Feel free.
