Steelers Hit Live In Camp, Lose Rookie DE Williams To Knee Injury

Nick Williams

It was quite the day at Steelers training camp in Latrobe Wednesday, as the club went at it with live hitting, something that reporters say they haven’t seen at Steelers camp this early in a long time.

They day seemed pretty spirited with all the hitting going on, but at the same time, there was a price to pay, as reports are rookie defensive end Nick Williams suffered a knee injury in the session.

Williams was the Steelers 7th round draft pick out of Samford University, and inked a four-year deal with the Steelers on June 4th.

Head coach Mike Tomlin also updated a prior hamstring injury to cornerback DeMarcus Van Dyke, and said that he could be sitting on the sidelines for awhile.

Van Dyke was hurt in the practice on Monday.

Tomlin also stated the Steelers will hit more in camp this year than in the past, with part of the reason being the fact the team has a number of days off, and he wants things to be as real as possible as the preseason gets closer for the black and gold.
