Steelers Training Camp 7/28: Pair of players start camp off on PUP list

Get the low down on the news coming from the first day of training camp when players got settled in and had their conditioning test.

Steelers 2017 Training Camp News and Q&A

Posted by Behind The Steel Curtain on Thursday, July 27, 2017

The Pittsburgh Steelers are back at training camp, and although the players just reported to camp and took the conditioning test, there was plenty of news after Mike Tomlin’s press conference worthy of noting.

Let’s dive in...

Duo of players on the PUP

Two players, one which was known, are going to start training camp on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list. Sammie Coates due to his knee injury which required it to be scoped, and wide receiver Canaan Severin, who failed to pass the conditioning test Thursday.

In Mike Tomlin’s press conference he was asked if Severin was the one carted off during the test, and his response was that it was. Which makes it seem as though Severin didn’t report out of shape, but possibly injured himself during the test.

The Steelers can take their time with both of these players before they are taken off the PUP list, we all learned this last year with Ladarius Green.

No-Show Safety

Veteran safety Daimion Stafford was placed on the reserve/did not report list. The former Tennessee Titans safety did not show to camp, and no explanation was given for Stafford's absence. Tomlin even said during his press conference that “all are present and accounted for.” The Steelers then announced the designation with Stafford moments after the press conference ended.

Rolling in style

The two Steelers who stole the show on move-in day were Antonio Brown and James Harrison. Brown showed up in a vintage Rolls Royce, while Harrison came blaring in driving a firetruck.

So, we have to ask:


Who showed up to camp better?
