Monday, Monday

Mike Tomlin apparently liked what he saw from the Steelers over the weekend. He let the boys out of practice early Monday morning.

The Steelers released wide receiver Chris Jackson – a Milsaps product – and re-signed Gerran Walker, who had been working with them in the offseason before getting released July 19. Apparently, with Santonio Holmes back , the Steelers felt they didn’t need another return man such as Jackson.

Speaking of return men, the punt return guys were Holmes, Reid, Cedrick Wilson, Jovon Johnson and Eric Shelton. No Ricardo Colclough for the second straight day. Who said this coaching staff didn't know what it was doing?

Kendall Simmons and Tomlin talked for about 10 minutes during practice. Simmons' blood sugar was low and Tomlin was asking him about it.

Walter Young caught my eye today when the team was working on its red zone offense. The 6-4 Young snatched a couple of Charlie Batch passes out of the air for touchdowns and looked good doing so. Maybe he could be like Cris Carter – you know, all he does is catch touchdown passes.

James Harrison was out of action again this morning and LaMarr Woodley was at left outside linebacker, with Clark Haggans sliding over to Harrison’s spot.
