During Friday night's practice, I heard Bill Hillgrove announce over the PA system that there was a vehicle with an Ohio license plate registered to a certain person (he used the name, which I can't remember) that had its lights on.
I thought it was strange that if they knew who the vehicle was registered to, why they just didn't say his name and tell him his lights were on.
Turns out, it was a little inside joke.
The person in question was a scout from the Cleveland Browns and the Steelers wanted to let him know that they knew he was there.
There's nothing shady about scouting a practice, however, under league rules if the team is charging admission for it as the Steelers do every year at Latrobe's Memorial Stadium.
That's why the Redskins coaches were so angry with owner Daniel Snyder a couple of years ago when he charged admission to every Redskins training camp practice. By doing that, he opened all of their practices up to opposing teams.
© A source tells me Chris Kemoeatu will return to practice Monday afternoon. He's just waiting on a special brace for his injured elbow - which apparently happened when he was running and missed a step, falling into a wall.
The starting left guard spot is Kemoeatu's when he returns, even though the team has been happy with how Trai Essex has performed there while Kemoeatu is on the PUP list.
© Another source tells me there is no battle at right tackle. The job is Willie Colon's.
© The center battle won't be decided until the team sees Sean Mahan and Justin Hartwig play in the preseason.
