2012 Pittsburgh Steelers Training Camp – Thursday – Day 9 Updates
Thursday is here and that means day nine of Pittsburgh Steelers training camp is underway. As we do everyday during training camp, we will be posting all updates from the media in one easy to follow post. Just keep refreshing all throughout the day for all of the news, notes and nuggets from practice. Later in the day we will recap the day and are also scheduled to have Ken Laird from Trib Live Radio to talk about what he observed not only on Thursday, but the entire training camp.
@MarkKaboly_Trib – Not practicing for #steelers today are Woodley Clark Clay A.Brown.
@MarkKaboly_Trib – Guess AB is practicing.
@MarkKaboly_Trib – Ryan Clark practicing as well.
@BobLabriola – My opinion: It\’s gonna take a teammate, a leader, to intervene and end the impasse with Mike Wallace. Like Bettis did with Hines in \’05.
