The Pittsburgh Steelers are now in full swing in regards to 2021 training camp as they are back at the UPMC Rooney Sports Complex for 2021 training camp on Sunday.
It has been reported that the Steelers will be holding practice each day through today with a day off on Monday. We also know the first padded practice at Heinz Field where fans can be in attendance is scheduled for next Wednesday, July 28. When the Steelers are on the field, we will be compiling as much information as to what is going on with the Steelers at practice as we possibly can.
Check out the information below as the players continue their preparation for the 2021 season. If any additional information or reports become available, they will be updated below.

Injury update: Antoine Brooks left practice early, but Mike Tomlin said it’s not characterized as a serious injury.— Brooke Pryor (@bepryor) July 25, 2021
C JC Hassenauer, who left practice early yesterday, was in a knee/leg brace today and didn’t participate. Tomlin characterized him as day to day.
should clarify a little here - he hit Watt, but Watt couldn't come down with the pass. Still, a play the Steelers aren't exactly known for. https://t.co/VWOFJ3JGHy— Brooke Pryor (@bepryor) July 25, 2021
Steelers DB coach Terry Austin couldn’t help but be impressed by Ben Roethlisberger’s deep passing today. “Oh he’s still got an arm.”— James C Wexell (@jimwexell) July 25, 2021

Teryl Austin wants to keep Cam Sutton at outside corner for now and see how the slot position pans out with Brooks and Maulet. Didn't rule out a significant jump by Pierre or Layne changing those plans and putting Sutton inside.— Mark Kaboly (@MarkKaboly) July 25, 2021
Steelers have concluded their first part of camp at the UPMC Rooney Sports Complex. They will move the operation to Heinz Field starting Tuesday. First open practice will be Wednesday.— Mark Kaboly (@MarkKaboly) July 25, 2021
Trai Turner on replacing David DeCastro: " I just look at it like it’s a new era, a different time, different places. Everything has an expiration date at some point.— Brooke Pryor (@bepryor) July 25, 2021
"DeCastro is a great player, and I wouldn’t necessarily say I’m replacing him, I’m just the new right guard."
New Steelers RG Trai Turner called Alan Faneca a “living legend” and hopes his fellow LSU Tiger will come see him play. “I have nothing but a ton of respect for Mr. Faneca. I admire his game. Been knowing about him since I got to LSU in 2011 … hopefully I can make him proud.” pic.twitter.com/RSp5skZM0b— Brian Batko (@BrianBatko) July 25, 2021
