According to Alan Robinson of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, Steelers wide receiver Mike Wallace has been viroously training down in Florida to get ready for the season. His personal trainer says he believes Wallace will show up soon.
“Mike Wallace is training extensively in Florida and likely will report to Steelers training camp in the near future, according to the conditioning coach who has been working out the receiver for the past two weeks,” wrote Robinson
“He’s fast as lightning right now,” said Wallace’s trainer Tom Shaw. “He’s not going to put himself in a bad situation (conditioning-wise) so that he couldn’t play in the first game.”

Former Pittsburgh Steelers running back Jerome Bettis was a guest Thursday morning on the NFL AM show on the NFL Network and he was asked if restricted free agent wide receiver Mike Wallace, who has yet to sign his one-year tender offer and report training camp, is playing hardball with the wrong team.
"I really think he is," said Bettis. "I think when you go through...
The Mike Wallace holdout saga continues, and as the days weeks continue to go by more people are speaking out on the situation. It’s a shame that we still have to talk about this with preseason underway and the regular season starting next month. Somehow though in the back of our minds, as fans we feared it would come to this and now it has. Much like Hines Ward’s situation...
Although it’s just a preseason game, tonight we get our first glimpse of what is to come with the Pittsburgh Steelers new offense under coordinator Todd Haley in a real game situation.
Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has already expressed his giddiness at the notion of running a no huddle offense, and the two seem to be working quite well together in camp.

To most observers, this the biggest training camp and preseason for the Pittsburgh Steelers in a few years. This goes a good bit further than that, though. This may be the biggest training camp and preseason the Steelers have ever had for a few reasons: a major coaching change has been made, there are multiple injuries [...]
Below are my offensive notes from the first run through of the Pittsburgh Steelers 24-23 loss Thursday night to the Philadelphia Eagles. My defensive notes will be along next.
I liked the use of fullback David Johnson out of the backfield on the first 3rd down of the game. Johnson also had a few good blocks on the first drive before getting injured.
The opening drive the Steelers...
Mike Tomlin saw Will Johnson one time and signed him. Steelers running backs coach Kirby Wilson understands why.
Not every team gets bit by the injury bug, but the Steelers last night resembled a MASH unit. They had more players limping off and on the field then anyone would really want to see. Preseason games are important, and training camp is vital. But since they made changes to what coaches can do during training camps, I can see where it can be a bit limiting.
This went somewhat un-noticed during all the media hype of the Olympics going on currently, and of course with the NFL preseason underway but NFL Commissioner Goodell told PFT’s Mike Florio that he wants the NFL to be an olympic sport. If you read through the excerpt below you can tell that he is quite adamant about finding a way to make it happen.
I’m honestly not sure how...
The preseason opener means it’s time to match the new names with the numbers for this year’s Pittsburgh Steelers. The unveiling occurs tonight in Philadelphia ...
