Pittsburgh Steelers nose tackle Daniel McCullers has yet to play so far during the preseason due to a hamstring injury suffered during one of the training camp practices a few weeks ago, but it appears as though the mammoth Tennessee product will begin his march back Sunday when the team resumes their work at Saint Vincent College in Latrobe.
According to Chris Bradford of the Beaver County Times, McCullers said Sunday that he will return to practice today in a limited capacity and that means he will only take part in position drills.

This is the Steelers final week of practice before they break camp, so the hope is that McCullers will do enough in the coming days in order for him to participate in the teams third preseason game next Sunday afternoon at home against the Green Bay Packers.
McCullers, who was drafted by the Steelers last year in the sixth-round, played a total of 65 regular-season snaps during his rookie season. He is scheduled to be the primary backup to starter Steve McLendon in his second season.
