Tuesday was the team’s final open practice, with a closed one on Wednesday morning, before their preseason opener on Thursday night against the Philadelphia Eagles and Coach Mike Tomlin is ready to kick it into the next gear.
“We’re excited about adventuring into our first stadium here this preseason and starting the process of playing against another team,” said Tomlin. “It’s that time for us in terms of our growth and development. We’re excited about doing that.
“We’re excited about seeing many of the men inside a stadium in a Steelers’ uniform for the first time. I’m really excited about taking this group on the road and getting started with this preseason process. This is a big portion of evaluation as we try to trim our roster down to an eventual 53.”
Tomlin said starters will see limited action, but some of the younger players like rookies David DeCastro and Mike Adams who are making their first start might see more playing time.
“It’s business as usual for us in terms of our first preseason game,” said Tomlin. “We haven’t nailed down specifically a rep count at this juncture. I’ll assure you though that the first groups will go one-to-two series both on offense and defense. We’re not opposed to giving people within those groups extended work if we deem necessary or pulling someone out of those units if we deem necessary. We’ve done that pretty consistently in the past.”
