On Monday, Steelers wide receiver Donte Moncrief reportedly left practice before it ended after seemingly suffering a finger on his right hand. Moncrief seemingly suffered his injury while attempting to catch a deep pass that was broken up by cornerback Artie Burns and ultimately intercepted by safety Kameron Kelly.
After leaving the field to get his injury checked out, Moncrief did return to field before practice ended. After practice ended, Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin met the media and said that Moncrief suffered a finger injury and that he had evaluated. He said he thought he returned to practice. After practice had ended, Moncrief did play catch some but mainly caught the football using his non-injured hand.
On Sunday, Steelers safety Sean Davis had to leave practice early after he suffered an injured finger on his left hand. The injury is speculated to be a dislocation.
#Steelers WR Donte Moncrief, who left practice with a trainer, is now walking back onto the field. Hopefully we’ll get an update from Coach Tomlin after practice wraps up.

The Steelers have off on Tuesday and will resume their training camp practices on Wednesday. We’ll have to wait and see which players that are now dealing with injuries are ultimately able to practice.
“Nothing new on the guys that were out with a variety of day-to-day like injuries,” Tomlin said after Tuesday’s practice. “Maybe we’ll start getting some of those guys back as we come off the off day.”
Those day-to-day players are outside linebacker T.J. Watt (hamstring), wide receiver Johnny Holton (hamstring), cornerback Alexander Myres (undisclosed) and Davis (finger).
