NT Ta’amu Off The PUP List; CB Brown On Crutches Following Ankle Injury

NFL: Pittsburgh Steelers at Cleveland Browns

There was good news, and not so good news for the Steelers today in Latrobe as they get set to enjoy a day off on Tuesday and then prep for the Giants Saturday at home.

The good news is Alameda Ta’amu is now officially off the PUP list and was a full participant in today’s practice.

The 22-year-old started camp on the list with a hamstring injury. He probably won’t play in the preseason opener this weekend, but that isn’t that big of a deal right now.

The nose tackle was drafted 109th overall by the Steelers in the 2012 draft, and is expected to have a big part as a role player in 2013.

Also back on the practice field today was LB Larry Foote, TE Matt Spaeth, RB Le’Veon Bell and Nick Williams.

Now for the bad news, and that’s about CB Curtis Brown. He was carted off the practice field during the session and after Mike Tomlin said it was an ankle injury that needs to be evaluated more.

The 24-year-old CB was going after passes in the two-minute drill, and is now according to reports on crutches.

With no practice tomorrow (new NFL rules say teams have a day off every five days), the Steelers went without pads, and did a lot of work in the two minute drills.

The team will have Tuesday off and be back at it Wednesday, with a couple sessions before the Giants game on Saturday.
