Now that the Steelers have reported to training camp, we can now officially assess the status of each player's health.
While Le'Veon Bell seems to have almost made a full recovery from his knee injury from last season, other Steelers had problems reported.
These players will begin camp on the physically unable to perform list: Gradkowski, Mike Adams, Shawn Lemon, Pouncey, Golson— Bob Labriola (@BobLabriola) July 25, 2015
Mike Adams is on a short string coming into this season, it's the final year of his rookie contract and he has yet to make a successful impact on the team, let alone be a consistent starter. So it's especially bad news for him that he might miss most of camp.
Tomlin: Adams had a back procedure on July 20 and is expected to miss 4 weeks.— Bob Labriola (@BobLabriola) July 25, 2015
Shawn Lemon is trying to make his splash in the NFL after his success in the Canadian Football League last year.
The injury that landed Shawn Lemon on PUP is to his Achilles.— Bob Labriola (@BobLabriola) July 25, 2015
Fortuately the only 2014 starter that made the list was Pouncey, and his injury appeared to be minor.
Gradkowski's injury is to his right shoulder. Pouncey is a minor foot injury.— Bob Labriola (@BobLabriola) July 25, 2015
Steelers second round draft pick, Senquez Golson, made the list with a shoulder injury. The severity has yet to be disclosed but we will keep you updated with all information we receiver on his condition as well as that of every Steeler.
