Today is day 3 of training camp for the Pittsburgh Steelers, and as we do everyday, we will be posting reports that come in during the day via the Twitter machine and interwebs. Per usual, we will recap the day in a recap post later this evening. Please check back often as this page will be updated with news and information from practice throughout the afternoon.
Steelers Depot: Steelers Minority Owner Named As A Browns Potential Investor bit.ly/PG7eUJ #steelers #nfl
Tight end Heath Miller left the field before the end of practice on Thursday with an ankle injury, but on Friday he said it shouldn’t sideline him for long.
“It’s feeling good, it’s a little set back but it’s no big deal,” said Miller. “It’s nothing major. I shouldn’t be out too long.”
Ike Taylor looking to improve his hands
@MarkKaboly_Trib – Marcus Gilbert talking outside cafeteria.
Ryan Mundy says he has put on a few pounds for this season.
Redman says he put himself on a strict diet this offseason.
Redman told David Johnson that he is not going to have worry about practicing his jump-cut after falling on his face on Thursday.
Redman says backs will not be having to chip as much this year and can get out into routes quicker.
The tackle will know this year when he is getting chip help as opposed to last year when they didn\’t.
Redman says he could see he was wearing Browns defense down late last year.
@MarkKaboly_Trib – Wes Saunders said he hasn\’t heard about his appeal on his four-week (three game) suspension for using adderall.
@MarkKaboly_Trib – Leftwich on Ben “Last year was the best Ben has ever played.That may not be numbers wise, but as far as what was put on him and the plays he made mentally, the things he did from the quarterback position was amazing.”

@Jon_MYVS – Steelers offense running drills during first day of training camp. http://t.co/L1xDIFEt
@Jon_MYVS – I remember covering Mike Adams at Ohio State. Still taller than the other lineman, but size difference just as apparent
@hammerspeaks – #Steelers in action. http://t.co/4Cdx8bbH
@DVEMike – Second verse, same as the first. 79 at left tackle on Friday, 73 at RG with 76 (left tackle) and 66 (RG) working in with first-team offense

Drew Butler. Wow. Just wow. 75 in the air. Twice
@Ken_Laird – Earlier Emmanuel Sanders went 1 on 1 vs Ike on deep route and was blanketed. Tomlin: “I see you 2-4!” #Steelers
@Ken_Laird – Cortez Allen drops possible INT on Byron throw. I still think he replaces Keenan by Week 3 #Steelers
@MarkKaboly_Trib – Willie Colon out in front of baron batch on a screen. Very quick.
@Ken_Laird – Toney Clemons has one go off hands on 20 yd out route. Would have been nice catch, Keenan was there to rake #Steelers
@MarkKaboly_Trib – I do believe I just saw a direct snap to Chris Rainey
@MarkKaboly_Trib – I do believe I just jinxed drew butler. Last two punts not good.
@MarkKaboly_Trib – Returning punts are sanders Cotchery Rainey and A Brown
@Ken_Laird – Great catch in 7 on 7 by Marquis Maze from Alabama, diving grab toward the sideline drew cheers from the crowd
@hammerspeaks – Rookie DB Terrence Fredrick has been impressive. #Steelers
@hammerspeaks – 11 v 11 at the end of practice. #Steelers http://t.co/TVSxPZ6H
