The Pittsburgh Steelers have now completed their Monday training camp practice and head coach Mike Tomlin took questions from the media afterwards. Below is the transcript of what he had to say.
Tomlin: Good work today, continued with the team development process and changed our attire today. Really trying to maximize the off day that we have tomorrow so that we can get bodies back and have a productive Wednesday, and continue on with our work week. Took a step in that regard I thought with the level of participation today. Number of guys back participating. Alameda\’s back off of PUP and participating fully. Larry Foote participated today – Matt Spaeth, Nick Williams, Le\’Veon Bell. I\’m sure when we come back out on Wednesday after the off day that will continue to increase and we\’ll continue with the team development process. And really, start getting an eye toward getting ready for the New York Football Giants. But good day today, some situational ball, two-minute and other areas. The process is continuing to work itself and we continue to come out here and work. I\’ll be happy to address any questions.
Re: Another contusion of the birth certificate for Troy today?
Tomlin: Yes, yes, it\’s a little better though. It\’s clearing up from what I understand
Re: Curtis Brown status?
Tomlin: It\’s an ankle injury of some description and we need to evaluate him. We\’ll see where it is, but just described as an ankle at this point.
Re: About seeing the organization bring in a veteran today.
Tomlin: It\’s the right thing to do, isnt it? I mean these guys are the real heros. These guys make the ultimate sacrifice and serve our country and we just want to honor them when given them an opportunity in the appropriate manner.
