During one of the busiest times in the NFL, when teams face tough roster decisions, the Pittsburgh Steelers have been doing their own shuffling to create an effective roster in time for their home opener against the Tennessee Titans on September 8, 2013.
The Steelers announced that they’ve signed eight new players to their practice squad.
LATROBE, Pa. (93-7 THE FAN) — The first full week of Steelers training camp continued Wednesday, and the day began with an 11-on-11 team drill devoted chiefly to the team’s running game.
The Pittsburgh Steelers are near critical mass as eight players miss practice on Wednesday. While Coach Mike Tomlin and the rest of the organization and coaches prepare replacements to fill necessary positions, the Steelers are digging in to make the most of their situation with only three games left in the 2012 NFL regular season and a must-win game against the Dallas Cowboys.
