My Day at Steelers Training Camp

Unlike Friday night, I saw the Steelers practice at St. Vincent College in Latrobe, Pennsylvania.  It was the last public practice before the preseason opener Friday night against the New York Giants at MetLife Stadium.  I saw some good plays starting with special teams that was emphasized with punt return/coverage drills.  During the 11 on 11 drills, Joshua Dobbs made some outstanding throws.  Dobbs who will start at quarterback against the Giants because Ben Roethlisberger will not play and Landry Jones is injured.  Another quarterback will get an opportunity to play on Friday night.  Bart Houston, a free agent from the University of Wisconsin could get some snaps.   I don’t expect Houston to make the team, but if he has some strong games and practices.  Houston could get a chance to play on a another NFL team.   After today’s practice, the Steelers received excellent news when the NFL fully reinstated wide receiver Martavis Bryant.  That means he can practice with the team and be eligible for next week preseason game against the Atlanta Falcons.  However, Bryant still has to continue with his treatment and being tested during the week.
