Steelers Injury Updates: Master Teague III Left Practice on Cart



Master Teague

UNITY TWP., Pa. — Pittsburgh Steelers running back Master Teague III was carted off the field and left guard Kevin Dotson suffered a potential recurrence of his ankle injury during the team’s training camp practice at St. Vincent College on Tuesday.

Teague suffered an ankle injury early in practice, left the field with assistance and did not return. Head coach Mike Tomlin characterized him as day to day.

Dotson suffered a potential re-aggravation of his right ankle injury. He was attended to by a trainer late in practice and did not return to team drills afterward. Tomlin did not specifically mention Dotson in his injury update. Kendrick Green replaced Dotson on the first-team offensive line.

Slot cornerback Arthur Maulet suffered a hamstring injury that Tomlin characterized as minor. Cam Sutton and Tre Norwood took additional reps as the Nickel.

Three players returned to action on Tuesday. Offensive lineman Chaz Green (undisclosed) and wide receiver Miles Boykin (ribs) came back after missing just one day of practice. 

Running back Benny Snell Jr. was also back at full practice participation after missing most of a week with a right knee injury.

Wide receiver Calvin Austin III told Steelers Now that his foot injury is minor. He worked off to the side at practice, without the protective walking boot he had been wearing.

Fullback Derek Watt (shoulder), defensive lineman Montravius Adams (ankle), inside linebacker Marcus Allen (hamstring) and outside linebacker Alex Highsmith (ribs) all continued their weeks-long absences.

Earlier in the day, the Steelers placed wide receiver Anthony Miller (right shoulder) and strong safety Karl Joseph (right ankle) on the injured reserve list, ending their seasons. The team released running back Javon McKinley from the injured reserve list with an injury settlement.
