Timmons Makes it Back on the Field in Limited Role

While he didn’t do all that much, the Steelers got some good Timmonsnews on Monday, as first-round draft choice Lawrence Timmons was finally back on the practice field.  Timmons’ presence on the field was the first time he was able to do something since July 27th, when he hurt his groin in the morning practice.  He was also hurt during the teams first mini-camp, and it’s been frustrating for both he and the team as to getting him ready to make an impact in his rookie year.

He did say post practice yesterday that he does not feel setback by the injury.  “I never heard that from any coaches. I go to meetings just like everybody else, so I don’t feel any dropoff. I’m still rehabbing. Just being on the field is the only thing.”  Last week he sought and got a good report from a doctor in Philly, who gave him an injection to help with the swelling.

Coach Mike Tomlin was also happy to see Timmons back on the field Monday.  “It’s time to start marching back. We’ll look at it day to day. I think the biggest thing is what he’s capable of doing mentally and where he is from a conditioning standpoint. That’s going to dictate how quickly he comes back.”
