2012 Pittsburgh Steelers Training Camp – Wednesday – Day 8 Updates

The Pittsburgh Steelers begin their eighth day in training on Wednesday. As we do everyday, we will post a running update of all the solid reports we get from the media throughout the day and wrap it up with a thorough recap post later tonight. Also I wanted to let everyone know that Mark Kaboly of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review is scheduled to join me tonight on the daily wrap up episode of The Terrible Podcast. Please make sure to refresh this post throughout the day for all your Steelers training camp news and reports. Also, if you are on Twitter, I highly suggest following all listed media members below.

@hammerspeaks – DB Da\’Mon Cromartie-Smith removed from the PUP list and will practice this afternoon

@BuzzSawPGH – Ramon Foster on OL mindset:”If U can dominate the guy over next to you, he\’s a pro athlete, pro football player, then that\’s saying somethin. Ramon Foster on #Steelers OL\’s “nasty” mindset:”Our coach teaches always finish. If you\’ve got a guy goin down, put him on his back.” Foster says the #Steelers OL “tries to have a little nasty edge to us.” Says it\’s always been that way, just shows more this year

@hammerspeaks – Breaking: I talked w #Steelers LB coach Keith Butler asked him when Harrison would be back: “I\’m hoping a couple weeks, but I don\’t know.” That is certainly longer than I expected on Harrison. Worilds he hopes to have back before last preseason game. Again longer. #Steelers Butler wasn\’t trying to play doc/trainer & caveated his comment, but clearly he didn\’t say day-to-day or next week. #Steelers

@SteelersDepot – Keith Butler admits was pounding on table for Dont\’a Hightower during the draft #steelers. Carter still a lot to learn, but Butler says he has great motor & willingness to learn. #steelers Butler once again clarifies BUCK & MACK roles blending. Says working hard at switching inside guys around in camp including Timmons & Foote.

@Ken_Laird – Chris Rainey blocks a FG off edge from backup-kicker Daniel Hrapmann during pre #Steelers stretching spec tms work. Big moment of camp

Steelers\’ Roethlisberger not worried about \’little\’ tear in rotator cuff

@MarkKaboly – Kugler to Decastro “these guys in this league are (expletive). They are 350. They are Ta\’amu with explosiveness”.

@MarkKaboly – Rookie hazing. Teammates shake the port a potty while Mike Adams is relieving himself

@JoeStarkey1 – Antonio just went D Thomas on Ike. Crowd went nuts

@MarkKaboly_Trib – Pouncey hurts ankle. Legursky replaces him at center.

@MarkKaboly_Trib – LeBeau just dresses down a player. Think it was Marshall McFadden

@Ken_Laird – FB Will Johnson blows Sean Spence off ball in the hole w 2nd tm O as Rainey follows for a big gain

@Ken_Laird – Another Will Johnson smash block as he crushes LB Adrian Robinson. Some coach says “whoo!” not sure who

@Ken_Laird – Another day of Sly Sylvester at 1st tm OLB with Chris Carter #Steelers

@MarkKaboly_Trib – Lined up as a tailback and now covering kicks, big Ben doing at all right now. Maybe he should worry about QB

@steelers – Taking a Lil water break @Ike_SwagginU

@Ken_Laird – Two nice catches in team drills, Antonio reaches high to snag a Ben pass, and Cotchery outstretched to grab a Batch sizzler

@hammerspeaks – Tyler Beiler drops one right in his hands over the middle. #Steelers

@BuzzSawPGH – B.Batch, Derrick Williams, Dwyer, David Gilreath, Marquis Maze among those returning punts in drill

@Ken_Laird – Two nice catches in team drills, Antonio reaches high to snag a Ben pass, and Cotchery outstretched to grab a Batch sizzler

@MarkKaboly_trib – Pouncey is back.

@Ken_Laird – OL v DL again today. Adrian Robinson spin move beats Mike Adams as he fakes outside speed rush

@BuzzSawPGH – Derrick Williams just dropped a pass, didn\’t look good on another route. Uphill battle in making roster

@Ken_Laird – Al Woods getting the best of Decastro for the most part

@Ken_Laird – TE David Paulsen gets a 1st team look lined up in slot right and makes a catch

@MarkKaboly_Trib – For a guy who has a slightly torn rotator cuff, he Sure is taking a lot of reps AFTER practice.

John Clay suffered a right groin injury today and there were also minor heat related issues according to Mike Tomlin. Tomlin is not concerned about the rotator cuff injury that Roethlisberger has.
