Through 2 practices, Steelers remain relatively injury-free
It’s only two practices, and neither involved full hitting or pads. But the Pittsburgh Steelers so far are remaining relatively healthy.
Receiver Johnny Holton has been the only injury of any kind through two training-camp practices at Saint Vincent. The veteran suffered a “minor” hamstring injury during Day 2 on Saturday, coach Mike Tomlin said.
Pro Bowl outside linebacker T.J. Watt remains on the physically unable to perform list after experiencing some tightness in his left hamstring during the conditioning run Thursday. But Tomlin at the time strongly indicated that was not serious, and Watt was doing individual workouts on Chuck Noll Field after Saturday’s practice ended.

It might not seem like much to have 89 of 91 players unscathed at this early juncture. But there have been recent Steelers camps where multiple players opened up on PUP, others where a handful of players could not finish practices within the first 2-3 days.
And the rival Cincinnati Bengals, for example, had star receiver A.J. Green carted off the field of their first practice of camp Saturday.
