Steelers Sights and Sounds: Heinz Field Practice

Published

on

PITTSBURGH — With the start of the preseason less than a week away, holding a practice at Heinz Field was the best way the Steelers could try to replicate a game like atmosphere.

SIGHTS AND SOUNDS

Fans packed the stadium after hanging out at the team’s “Family Fest” all day. Coaches and players received a roaring ovation when they ran out of the Heinz Field tunnel for the first time since their season ended one game shy of the playoffs last year.

The linemen put their power on display, the receivers caught deep balls and the running backs practiced their foot work in front of members of Steelers Nation.

SEVEN SHOTS

Just like he’s been doing all camp long, Josh Dobbs impressed those watching, not just with his feet, but with his arm. Dobbs connected for a couple scores, including one to Ryan Switzer. Even though the offense, at least those on the field, looked to have chemistry with each other, the defense was able to swat some passes away and make some stops as well.

HIGHLGHTS 

Chris Boswell, who attempted kicks at Heinz Field for the first time since his poor 2018 season, successfully made every kick except for one on the night. Boswell’s only miss was a 51-yard attempt.

INJURY UPDATES

Despite being officially activated from the “physically unable to perform list” earlier in the day, T.J. Watt was seen with ice on his hamstring following his brief appearance practicing at Heinz Field. Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger took part in some seven on seven action after sitting out the previous two days. Maurkice Pouncey left practice early with what appears to be a lower back issue.
