Steelers Wednesday training camp open thread

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sport

Practice kicks off at 2:55 p.m. ET, we'll have updates and conversation throughout the day.

It shouldn't be a surprise Steelers coach Mike Tomlin is requiring his offensive linemen to wear knee braces during training camp, considering he lost one during a preseason game last year, and basically every one he's had has been nearly mortally wounded at some point in the last few years.

News is starting to pick up, and along with that, SCR is working on a few others, but we're declaring this Open Thread...Open.

Anyone at camp? Feel free to post what you're seeing here. We're going to add some Tweets or other tidbits here, and we'll let you know if there's a new story on the page.

I'm going to have to embarrass our very own PaVaSteeler, who was recently named Associate Editor of Content at Rotoworld, so please, let's give him a proper send-off as he leaves our sunny shores to be a Fantasy Football writer.

None of that is serious. PaVa is laughing hardest.

Let us know what's good out there, and let's get some conversation going. Refresh this page often for updates.

Guesing this still isn't precautionary.

Anyone doubt Emmanuel Sanders ability to catch a football?

Think he'd rather be on the other side of things?

Players back for more lovin' from 'Big Bertha'

Probably a good reason why John Rabe was unemployed before Tuesday.

Tomorrow's headlines will read 'Relationship destroyed during can drills'.

Who says training camp has to be all work and no play.

Maybe the coaching staff will need to re-think this 'Gay to play outside in nickel packages' theory?

Drills are done. Time for the real meat and potatoes.

This is what some folks were afraid of with the new zone run blocking scheme.

Le'Veon Bell took over from there.
