3:15 p.m. ET update: HC Mike Tomlin notes that WR Diontae Johnson left practice due to “heat issues,” Jeff Hathhorn of 93.7 The Fan reports.

And so it begins.

Steelers WR Diontae Johnson was carted off the field during the team’s second training camp practice Friday. The consensus among Steelers beat reporters was there was no obvious injury witnessed, so it’s unclear just how serious the news is for Johnson.

The good news is that he was able to stand and walk on his own prior to being carted off.

In the team’s first practice, Johnson was noted to have slipped up and stood up gingerly after landing on his knee.

Despite leaving on a cart, contributor Dale Lolley notes that it, “Doesn’t look serious.” We’ll update as we hear more.
