Steelers Injury Updates: Jaylen Samuels, Dax Raymond Hurt in Practice



PITTSBURGH — Running back Jaylen Samuels and tight end Dax Raymond left Steelers practice on Thursday, adding two players to the Steelers injury report after the team’s seventh training camp practice of the 2021 season at Heinz Field on Thursday.

Samuels limped off during practice, while Raymond was injured during a two-minute drill late in practice. Head coach Mike Tomlin did not have an update on their condition.

Wide receiver Cody White was the only player that did not participate at all in the pads-free workout. Tomlin clarified that White, who missed his second straight practice, has a hamstring injury.

Zach Banner (ACL recovery), Devin Bush (ACL recovery), J.C. Hassenauer (left knee), Kevin Dotson (undisclosed), Eric Ebron (right elbow discomfort), Chukwuma Okorafor (undisclosed), Stephon Tuitt and T.J. Watt were all limited in some fashion.

Watt has yet to take part in a full-speed team drill this camp. He did not indicated that he was missing time because of an injury when asked earlier in camp. Tomlin was asked directly if Watt has been dealing with an injury and he declined to answer.

Guard Anthony Coyle returned to action after suffering a stinger on Wednesday.

Veteran cornerback Joe Haden was given the day off.

“We’ll mix that around through some of the more veteran players in an effort to preserve them,” Tomlin said. “But really, it’s less about preserving them, as I often mention, and more about getting additional exposure to younger guys.”
