PITTSBURGH — The Steelers were glad to get back some of their offensive linemen on Monday. After missing practice Saturday, Trai Turner was back in pads and a full participant. For the first time at training camp, Zach Banner was in pads and participated in some team activities, though he was on a snap count. Kevin Dotson and Chukwuma Okorafor were in pads, but did not participate in team periods. B.J. Finney and J.C. Hassenauer were fully back and working through team periods.
Rookie tight end Pat Freiemuth left the field early with trainers. He returned shortly thereafter with his helmet in hand but did not participate the rest of practice. Fellow tight end Eric Ebron continues to work back from his injury. He was only working on the side and riding the exercise bike along the sidelines.
Two new additions to the list were running back Benny Snell and linebacker Marcus Allen. Allen was standing on the sidelines today and did not participate in any drills or team periods. Snell was not even in the building, as Mike Tomlin noted Snell is being evaluated for an injury.
Both T.J. Watt and Stephon Tuitt continue to be brought on slowly by the Steelers. They were not dressed today and worked only sparingly on the sidelines. Ben Roethlisberger was not in full pads and working in shorts, although he did participate in all team periods.
After missing a practice, outside linebacker Cassius Marsh was a full participant and brought back into the fold. Jaylen Samuels similarly returned to the practice field.
Offensive lineman Anthony Coyle and wide receiver Cody White still missed practice. Coyle was out Monday after appearing to suffer an injury on Saturday.
