The Steelers took practice indoors on Tuesday for the first time during training camp this season, but the move to get away from the rain did not stop the continued onslaught of injuries the team has been going through.
On Tuesday, wide receiver Ryan Switzer (foot), running back Kerrith Whyte (groin) and cornerback Alexander Myres (groin) all suffered new injuries during practice, head coach Mike Tomlin said. He did not give a prognosis for any of the players.
Offensive lineman Jarron Jones did not practice with a new, undisclosed ailment. Wide receiver Anthony Johnson (leg) was on crutches after being injured during Monday’s practice.
Offensive linemen Kevin Dotson (knee) and Chukwuma Okorafor (groin), wide receivers Diontae Johnson (calf) and JuJu-Smith Schuster (day off), running back Wendell Smallwood (shoulder), defensive end Chris Wormley (shoulder) all did not practice yet again, while tight end Vance McDonald (day off) was a new absence.
Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger returned to action after an off day on Monday and center Maurkice Pouncey returned to the team after dealing with a death in the family.
The team did not update the status of linebacker Bud Dupree and offensive lineman Derwin Gray, who were injured during practice on Monday.
