Report: Steelers Rookie LB Jarvis Jones Back On The Field Tuesday
Pittsburgh Steelers rookie linebacker Jarvis Jones was limited last week in the first set of OTA practices with a hamstring injury, but according to Jim Wexell of Steel City Insider, Jones practiced on Tuesday and even received a few reps with the first team defense.
Jones said last week that he had aggravated a hamstring that he believes he originally injured at his Pro Day back in March while running the forty-yard dash. Despite being limited last week, Jones still insisted that he did a lot.
Even though Jones played in a 3-4 defense at Georgia, he admitted to Wexell that what the Steelers do in their 3-4 is a lot more complex than what he has ran in the past.
The big news here is that Jones is back on the field again. The rest of it will come as long as he is able stay out there. The Steelers second OTA session of the 2013 season will wrap on Thursday.
