The Steelers' secondary is picking up right where it left off last year.

With several of them in bandages and in the training room.

Cornerback Curtis Brown was carted off the field with an apparent ankle injury, multiple sources reported, including Steel City Insider's Jim Wexell and Tribune-Review reporter Mark Kaboly.

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin confirmed the injury, and that Brown's status would be evaluated. Wexell added Brown was seen on crutches after practice.

He'll join Cortez Allen (knee), Terry Hawthorne (knee) and DeMarcus Van Dyke (hamstring) as sidelined cornerbacks on the Steelers' roster. They did not hit in practice today, and many of the players were in shorts.
