PITTSBURGH – Steelers wide receiver James Washington did not complete Sunday’s practice session after suffering an apparent right knee injury.
While it did not by any means appear significant, Washington was held out of the remainder of the day’s action with a wrap, and later a sleeve, on his right knee.
Washington will most likely return to the practice field tomorrow, but the ailment could prove significant if the Steelers are still actively trying to deal him.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported Friday that Washington was upset with his limited opportunities over the past year, and had approached the team to request a trade.
Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin dismissed Schefter’s report on Saturday.
“Those unnamed sources, we don’t react to or respond to (them),” Tomlin said. “James has been great here, and working, and having a good camp.”
Tomlin did not provide an update on Washington’s condition following the conclusion of practice Sunday.
