There was an interesting piece on Nick Eason in Steelers Digest that explains why he looked so bad in training camp.
It seems Eason had an emergency appendectomy and developed complications from that which caused him to lose 29 pounds.
According to the story, Eason had to have portions of his bowel removed as well and is lucky to be alive.
He also had to have his intestines pumped through his mouth, which could not have been pleasant.
© I had a long talk with Frank Summers today about the fullback position.
Summers said he doesn't know how much the Steelers intend to use the fullback, but he seems to have fully embraced the position.
© I also spoke with Emmanuel Sanders about possibly being the guy who is being overlooked among the receivers at this point.
We had a long talk about his blocking skills, which have impressed me, as well.
Sanders said he wasn't asked to do a lot of blocking in college, but that it was his main job in high school.
