The Pittsburgh Steelers Wednesday training camp practice is currently in full swing and it appears as though one the team’s backup offensive linemen was injured during the session.
According to Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com, guard Chris Hubbard is about to be carted off with a toe injury.

Hubbard, who joined the Steelers in 2013 as an undrafted free agent out of UAB, was on the Steelers roster for all of 2014 season. He only saw action in one game, however.
Hubbard looks to be the front-runner for a backup spot on the Steelers offensive line again this season, so it will be interesting to see if he’s able to rebound quickly from this injury.
With Hubbard out, veteran Cody Wallace is working some at left guard.
The Steelers signed several young undrafted free agent interior offensive linemen during the offseason and two of those players, B.J. Finney and Miles Dieffenbach, will more than likely see their reps increase in practice while Hubbard is sidelined.
Head coach Mike Tomlin will likely update Hubbard’s condition at the conclusion of practice.
