The Pittsburgh Steelers Monday training camp practice is now underway and the fourth session of 2019 includes a few players being sidelined.
After suffering a possible dislocated finger during Sunday’s practice, safety Sean Davis is sidelined on Monday. Alex Kozora believes the finger injury is on Davis’ left hand. With Davis sidelined, Kameron Kelly is likely to get more first-team work at free safety.
Also sitting out on Monday once again are outside linebacker T.J. Watt (hamstring), wide receiver Johnny Holton (hamstring), cornerback Alexander Myres (undisclosed), guard Ramon Foster (coaches decision). Watt remains on Active/PUP for now. Holton injured his hamstring on Saturday while Myres has yet to practice yet for unknown reasons.
Foster being sidelined on Monday was predictable as head coach Mike Tomlin hinted after Sunday’s practice that he has a plan in place that includes rotating in some days off for the team’s older players. With Foster sitting out on Monday, Matt Feiler is apparently getting some first-team work at left guard.
After being given days of rest on Sunday, quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and center Maurkice Pouncey both returned to work on Monday. Those two players will likely have every third practice off this summer moving forward. Also returning to work on Monday is linebacker Mark Barron as he was given Sunday off to rest as well.
