The Pittsburgh Steelers arrived on the South Side for the start of training camp Wednesday to some exciting news regarding one of their star defenders.
Steelers linebacker Devin Bush has recovered from his torn ACL and is expected to be cleared for the start of training camp, Steelers Now has learned. The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette’s Gerry Dulac first reported the news.
Bush suffered the knee injury in the Steelers’ Week 6 win over the Cleveland Browns last season. Prior to the injury, Bush had recorded 26 total tackles, a sack and three passes defended.
While Bush stayed in Pittsburgh during the offseason to focus on his recovery, his behavior on social media sparked a concern about his mindset going into such a pivotal season for his career.
Above all else, Bush’s health is what will detail his chances at a successful season for him and the Steelers defense as a whole, especially after longtime fellow starter at inside linebacker Vince Williams announced his retirement on Wednesday.
