Mike Wallace was the only no-show for the Steelers as they opened training camp at Saint Vincent College Wednesday.
At this point, Emmanuel Sanders will assume Wallace's starting role and the Steelers will move on.
Traditionally, the team has not negotiated with players who are holding out while under contract, but this situation is a little different.
Wallace has yet to sign his one-year tender offer with the team and is thus not under contract at this time meaning, technically, he's not a holdout.
But he's not a free agent any longer, either, leaving him and the Steelers at an impasse.
His teammates expect Wallace to come into camp no later than the start of next week. We'll see.
At this point, he's really not missing anything. But once the weekend begins, he'll have to play catch up.
@ Six players will open camp on the PUP list, including linebacker James Harrison, who is resting a sore knee.
The other players who will sit out practices early are running back Rashard Mendenhall (knee), nose tackle Casey Hampton (knee), offensive tackle Max Starks (knee), linebacker Jason Worilds (hand) and safety Damon Cromartie-Smith.
Despite being down two outside linebackers - at least for a few days - head coach Mike Tomlin said the team won't sign anyone for depth at the position.
Tomlin said it will be an opportunity for Chris Carter to get more reps.
