Steelers' top rookies hurt in minicamp
Friday, May 11, 2007

By Ed Bouchette, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

The Steelers first two draft choices, linebackers Lawrence Timmons and LaMarr Woodley, were injured on the first day of minicamp and may not practice the rest of the weekend.

Coach Mike Tomlin described both injuries as minor and said the players will be re-examined Saturday morning and there's still a chance they could resume practice. Timmons, their first-round pick, has a groin injury and Woodley a hamstring.

Tomlin described the injuries as "typical -- rookies trying to make a first impression."

Last year's top rookie, wide receiver Santonio Holmes, also was injured in the morning practice when he fell on his left shoulder. However, he returned to practice in the afternoon.

I hope these rookies make a good impact espescially the o-lineman we picked up because today on NFL Live it was said that the Steelers have no intention of bringing Faneca back.

I actually like this news...

There is only one way to have minor pulls... which this sounds like..

BY WORKING YOUR REAR END OFF....

I don't mind!

Reminds you that losing any player regardless of injury or contract is gonna happen. Bottom line. No one player makes a team.

At least it is a minor injury and not a major injury. But you want the rookies out their to get in as many reps before the season starts but it should be fine no big deal
