Steelers injury notes: Sean Davis returns to practice, Joe Haden has ‘contusion’

Steelers cornerback Joe Haden defends on receiver Tevin Jones (he left practice after this play, walking to cart) during practice Aug. 7, 2019 at Saint Vincent College.

For the first time in more than two weeks, Sean Davis took part in Pittsburgh Steelers practice. The veteran starting free safety took all the regular team reps in Tuesday’s session that was abbreviated by rain.

Davis hadn’t practiced since July 28 because of a dislocated finger.

Also taking part Tuesday after missing recent practices and Friday’s preseason game were cornerback Artie Burns, rookie receiver Diontae Johnson and offensive tackle Alejandro Villanueva.

Among those who sat out were starters offensive linemen David DeCastro (“camp soreness,” per coach Mike Tomlin) and Maurkice Pouncey, cornerback Joe Haden and inside linebacker Vince Williams (hamstring), in addition to British tight end Christian Scotland-Williamson (undisclosed).

Haden was in street clothes but walking around briskly without a limp or a visible wrap or cast on his feet. Tomlin earlier in the day termed his injury a “contusion.” Haden left the Steelers’ most recent practice, Aug. 7, with an apparent ankle injury.

Tomlin would not divulge what is ailing Pouncey but termed him “day-to-day” and said he “will be back probably sooner than later.” Scotland-Williamson left Friday’s win against Tampa Bay during the first quarter.

Linebacker T.J. Watt (hamstring) and receiver Donte Moncrief (finger) took part in an entire practice for the first time since they suffered their injuries, albeit one that did not include pads and was limited to less than 40 minutes of team drills because of steady rain at Saint Vincent.
