Steelers Bring Officials In For Thursday’s Training Camp Practice

The Pittsburgh Steelers have started their fourth training camp practice of 2015 and it appears as though they are being joined Thursday by a set of officials.

According to Missi Matthews of Steelers Live, the team will have referees present for their Thursday padded session.

This is not unusual as head coach Mike Tomlin has brought in referees for camp practices in the past.

Last season, the Steelers were flagged a total of 126 times. However, only 103 of those were accepted for 834 yards. 17 of those penalties were as a result of false starts, while 9 more were a result of offensive holding.

Cornerback Cortez Allen led the Steelers last season with nine accepted penalties against him. On offense, tackle Kelvin Beachum led the way with seven accepted penalties of which three were holding.
