It was a busy day at the Steelers offices.
First, all the TV and radio guys picked up on the stories that Mike Wallace will be reporting soon.
I actually wrote the same thing for Tuesday's Observer-Reporter, but when the Post-Gazette reported on its web site the same thing, suddenly, the world was abuzz.
The best was when I was listening to talk radio on the way home and one of the local sports talk stations said, "The Post-Gazette's Ed Bouchette broke the story that Mike Wallace might be returning to the Steelers sometime this weekend."
Think about that statement for a second.
Now, certainly Ed's story was a little more specific than mine, saying that Wallace would report sometime this weekend after the Steelers' game in Buffalo.
But the statement Wallace "might" be in this weekend isn't really breaking news and really isn't what Ed wrote. Wallace might run for president as well - though I doubt it.
It's not a big deal and it's certainly semantics, but I found it funny.
@ The second big news story of the day came once the locker room opened and Max Starks announced he would be working with the first-team offense.
It wasn't a surprise that Starks would be practicing. But putting him out with the ones was certainly newsworthy.
@ After that, it was on to James Harrison, who said he should be ready to go once the regular season opens.
That wasn't surprising either, but Harrison looked fine walking around and was moving with no issues.
@ Finally, running back Issac Redman said his MRI last week revealed his problem wasn't a groin as thought, but a hip issue near his groin.
That seemed to put him a little more at ease and he was back working Tuesday.
@ It doesn't happen often, but while the Steelers were on one field Tuesday, Pitt came out and practiced on the field right next to them - there are five total fields outside at the facility.
This allowed for the Pitt players to get a good look at the Steelers practice when they were on their way out and running back Ray Graham was all eyes as he walked by.
Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin yelled at him, "Hey, keep your eyes off this practice," or something to that affect, and they shared a smile and a laugh.
Tomlin then said, "I love to mess with the kids."
It gives you a little insight into why Tomlin is so respected. Yes, he's a no-nonsense kind of coach. But he's also not afraid to mix it up a little as well.
@ One other thing caught my eye after practice. Five of the team's tackles - Starks, Marcus Gilbert, Trai Essex, Mike Adams and Kelvin Beachum - were working on their sets after practice with one of the linebackers rushing against them.
The linebacker? Rookie Adrian Robinson.
Robinson goes hard 100 percent of the time and his teammates see that. It's a big reason he's going to make this team.
