It didn't take long for the Pittsburgh Steelers to suffer their first injuries of this young 2015 training camp. In just their second workout, the Steelers had two players leave practice early. Safety Ross Ventrone left practice with an apparent ankle injury, while rookie tight end Cameron Clear left practice with heat-related symptoms. Head coach Mike Tomlin verified both injuries after practice and said both will be re-evaluated on Wednesday, per Neal Coolong of DKonPittsburghSports.com.
It should be noted the team was not wearing pads Monday, and will have their first practice will full contact on Wednesday.
Other than the new injuries occurring Monday, James Harrison sat out of practice for a second consecutive day, and was joined Monday by Matt Spaeth in street clothes doing conditioning work on the sidelines. The 5 players who were listed on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list remained out of the workout session while getting treatment on their varying injuries.
The Steelers have Tuesday off of practice, and will reconvene Wednesday for a practice which is open to the public.
