The Pittsburgh Steelers’ 2020 Training Camp is weird.
There is no way around it.
The coronavirus pandemic forcing the team to stay at Heinz Field is just one of the oddities about this year’s training camp. The pads haven’t gone on yet, players are still in the acclimation process and reporters aren’t there to see what is going on yet.
In other words, we, the fans, are reliant on others to get news as to what practices look like, even if they are walk-throughs, and video of players going through the motions.
The Steelers have been releasing more information to the public to help the fan base feel as if they are on the hill side at Saint Vincent College in Latrobe, and while it isn’t the same it certainly is a welcome sight.
Below are some images and video from the day that was at Heinz Field. Everything from pictures and video from practice, links to interviews with Ben Roethlisberger and Matt Canada and some links from articles you may have missed from the day that was here at BTSC.

'We have a great defense, and I’m excited about that group. That was one of the big reasons I was excited to come back, was to play with a group like that.' - @_BigBen7— Teresa Varley (@Teresa_Varley) August 4, 2020
