The Pittsburgh Steelers have wrapped up their first padded practice of their 2014 training camp and unfortunately they had another player suffer a groin injury.
According to head coach Mike Tomlin following practice, rookie linebacker Jordan Zumwalt (groin) experienced a tight groin during Monday’s practice and he’ll be evaluated further. Zumwalt missed all of the OTA practices this spring due to graduation requirements, so he certainly needs to get back on the field as soon as possible in order to not fall behind.
As far as the other injured players go, Tomlin said that running back Le’Veon Bell (hamstring) who sat out Monday’s practice because of hamstring tightness is currently day to day and maybe they’ll get him back soon. The same goes for rookie undrafted free agent wide receiver C.J. Goodwin (shoulder), who also failed to practice Monday.
Rookie wide receiver Martavis Bryant (groin) was able to return to practice Moinday after sitting out Sunday with a minor groin injury.
Tomlin also updated the status of the two players currently on the PUP list, safety Mike Mitchell (groin) and running back Alvester Alexander (groin). Both had a good run session with trainers this morning, according to Tomlin, and both are working their way back.
Left guard Ramon Foster (personal) has not yet re-joined the team after the recent death of his mother.
The Steelers will be off Tuesday and will resume practice on Wednesday at Saint Vincent College in Latrobe.
