When ex-Steelers defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau was inducted to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in August of 2010, the team ventured from training camp in Latrobe, Pa., to attend the ceremony.

Word is now, according to Post Gazette reporter Ed Bouchette, they'll be in town for Jerome Bettis's induction ceremony as well.

Bouchette reported not long after news broke that former Steelers running back Jerome Bettis has been selected for induction in the Pro Football Hall of Fame, the Steelers will play in the Hall of Fame game the night after the ceremony, Aug. 9.

Nothing has been declared official, but considering the massive Steelers crowd likely to be on hand for the induction ceremony, they may as well considering it to be official.
