While there may be no preseason games this year, the Steelers will be donning their game uniforms for Saturday’s evening practice at Heinz Field, the team announced on Twitter.

We’re breaking out the game unis tonight at #SteelersCamp 🔥
This will be the first time Steelers fans will get a live look at tight end Eric Ebron, wide receiver Chase Claypool and others in their new threads, albeit virtually.
In addition to airing practice on Training Camp Live through their digital and social media platforms, tonight’s practice will also be broadcast on Pittsburgh’s CW. Bob Pompeani, Charlie Batch, Tunch Ilkin and Missi Matthews will provide coverage and analysis.
For those that prefer radio, fans can also listen to the broadcast of practice on Steelers Nation Radio and WDVE, the Steelers’ flagship. Mike Prisuta and Craig Wolfley will have the call live from Heinz Field starting at 6 p.m.
Tonight’s practice at least partially replaces the team’s traditional Friday Night Lights practice held annually at Latrobe Memorial Stadium. The Steelers have had to hold their entire 2020 training camp at Heinz Field as the league and country continue to battle the on going COVID-19 pandemic, but they plan on returning to Latrobe next year.
“We look forward to returning to Saint Vincent College & Latrobe in 2021 for training camp,” Steelers spokesperson Burt Lauten tweeted back in June.
