Pittsburgh Steelers: Second-year working again Najee Harris obtained stepped on in an early workforce interval and did not take part the remainder of the day.

Samuel will probably be eased again in after working solely on conditioning as he awaited a brand new deal.

Two possessions, two three-and-outs. “Not so scorching,” offensive coordinator Mike LaFleur stated. Coach Robert Saleh claimed the “protection was on fireplace,” which is what you’d anticipate a defensive-minded coach to say. It was one other lackluster follow for the second-year quarterback Wilson, who could not get a lot going after a protracted landing move to receiver Elijah Moore at first of follow.

The knock on Conner was his lack of pace (he ran 40 yards in 4.59 seconds on the mix), however he has seemed faster than anticipated at camp. Conner caught solely 32 passes in three seasons at Ole Miss, however he has proven in camp that he generally is a dependable pass-catcher.

However I informed Lester after we have been strolling to our automobiles yesterday, ‘Lester, I am so happy with you. As a result of via the cuts, via the re-signs, via this and that, new schemes, you’ve accomplished nothing however put your head down.’” — Paul Gutierrez

On Monday, he did not like the way in which the punt workforce broke the huddle, so he instantly blew his whistle and ran from 30 yards down the sphere to ensure the group knew it. He informed them — no, screamed at them — to get again within the huddle and are available out sooner to line up.
