Six Steelers open camp on PUP list

The Pittsburgh Steelers have gathered in Latrobe for training camp.  Six members of the team will begin the journey on the physically unable to perform list.

They are safety Damon Cromartie-Smith, nose tackle Casey Hampton, linebacker James Harrison, running back Rashard Mendenhall, tackle Max Starks, and linebacker Jason Worilds.

Hampton and Mendenhall are both recovering from torn ACLs.  Starks, who re-signed with the Steelers last week, also is working his way back from an ACL tear.

Worilds had offseason wrist surgery, and Harrison missed time during OTAs with some sort of leg injury.

Teams have no obligation to provide any specific injury information until the first week of the regular season.  The six players on the PUP list can emerge at any time during training camp or the preseason.  If not ready to go by the final roster cuts, the players would land on the PUP list for at least six weeks of the regular season.

    I really like that new rule implemented this year, where if you have an injured player you don’t have to lose them for the whole season, they could be healthy just in time for playoffs. Looks like that could be the case for Terrell Suggs this year.
