Heath Miller left the Steelers practice this afternoon with a sprained left ankle. It's not considered serious.
Alameda Ta'amu also left with a foot injury. It, too, is not considered serious.
Other than that, the Steelers' practices today weren't a whole lot different than the OTAs. There's still a lot of learning to do with the new offense, which features more throws to the running backs on swing passes and screens than I have seen in my 20 years of covering this team.
Fans should be happy with that.
@ Fans will get their first look at the Steelers Friday afternoon when the team's practice is open to the public. I expect the team to be a little more spirited in that workout. The players seem to feed off the energy of the crowd.
@ Troy Polamalu looks a little heavier than usual. He's doing his usual work after practice and such, but he's starting to fight father time and genetics.
I still expect Polamalu to be a difference maker, however.
@ Don't be surprised if the Steelers bring in a veteran wide receiver or two for workouts in an effort to scare Mike Wallace into camp - Plaxico Burress anyone?
The team could also open negotiations with the agent of wide receiver Antonio Brown.
