Steelers activate Alameda Ta'amu from PUP list

He returns to practice to see his first action of the 2013 season.

He hasn't been activated from many lists to this point in his career.

The fact Steelers nose tackle Alameda Ta'amu was taken off the physically unable to perform (PUP) list should be seen as one of the bigger accomplishments of his otherwise notorious career.

But it's a start for him as well.

Ta'amu will participate in the Steelers' training camp for the first time this season, sitting out the first week after a hamstring injury held him out.

Perhaps the leading mark in a sea of questions at nose tackle for the Steelers in 2013, Ta'amu is said to have dropped a considerable amount of weight leading into camp. The hamstring injury came before he reported, but now he will get to lace up the pads, and perhaps see his first game action since the preseason last year.
