Steelers safety Minkah Fitzpatrick signed a long-term extension with the team at the end of its offseason program and he took a vacation before training camp to celebrate his good fortune.

That vacation didn’t turn out exactly as hoped, however. Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin told reporters on Tuesday that Fitzpatrick will be starting camp on the non-football injury list because he hurt his wrist during the trip. Tomlin said the injury happened when Fitzpatrick fell off of a bike.

Fitzpatrick is not expected to be sidelined for long, but Tomlin said he is experiencing discomfort as a result of the injury.

The Steelers are also placing defensive lineman Tyson Alualu on the physically unable to perform list. Alualu is dealing with a knee injury.

  1. Hurt his wrist from counting all that money. Amazing what a 59 PFF grade can get you.

  2. The way so many of these NFI injuries go down, I’m starting to think it really stands for ‘Nother Flipping Idiot.

  3. Right now about 3400 people associated with NFL teams as a player. Some players get hurt in the off-season. Pretty minor injury and a non-story.
