Steelers coach Mike Tomlin wasn't going to the let persistent rain beat him when he decided to move practice 30 miles down the road from their training camp home of Latrobe to their practice facility on the South Side.

“We weren't going to combat the weather. We had the opportunity to come back to the indoor facility. I will do what I need to do to roll the ball out and get some work done,” Tomlin said.

It was the second time the Steelers moved their practice to the indoor facility. In Tomlin's rookie year of 2006, severe weather also forced a change in venue. Thunderstorms briefly knocked out power at the indoor facility forcing the team to wait 12 minutes before the lights came back on.

• Linebacker Jason Worilds is still recovering from offseason wrist surgery that landed him on the physically unable to perform list to start training camp. “I wasn't surprised. I think it was the best thing for me so I can be healthy in the long term,” Worilds said.

• Cornerback Curtis Brown had soreness in his knee that forced him out of practice early. Punter Jeremy Kapinos continues to be out because of a sore back. Tomlin said Kapinos is week-to-week.
