Mike Bires of the Beaver County Times tweeted the names of the Steelers who will begin training camp on the physically-unable-to-perform (PUP) list, and it won't come as much of a shock.

LB James Harrison, who missed time in OTAs with a knee issue, and LB Jason Worilds, who also missed much of OTAs with a wrist injury, will both begin on the PUP. It isn't much of an alarm, but it does create an opening for veteran free agent signee Brandon Johnson to show what he can do in the early part of camp.

As expected, LT Max Starks, RB Rashard Mendenhall and NT Casey Hampton will join Harrison and Worilds on the PUP. S Damon Cromartie Smith, considered a long-shot to make the team, will join the rest of them.
