Default Smith should be healthy for Steelers training camp

Smith should be healthy for Steelers training camp
By John Harris
TRIBUNE-REVIEW
Wednesday, March 12, 2008


Steelers defensive end Aaron Smith, who missed the final four games of last season after tearing his biceps muscle against New England in December, should be at full strength for the start of training camp.
Smith underwent surgery and is working out in Colorado, agent Peter Schaffer said Tuesday.

"His biceps muscle has been fixed. Our timetable is for him to be 100 percent for training camp," Schaffer said.

Only two players have more tenure on the Steelers than Smith -- receiver Hines Ward and cornerback Deshea Townsend.

Selected in the fourth round in the 1999 NFL draft, Smith, 31, has been a fixture in the starting lineup since 2000.
However, he missed most of three games last season because of a knee injury. He sustained the biceps injury during the Dec. 11 game at New England but remained in the contest.

"Being the guy he is, he continued on," coach Mike Tomlin said after the New England game. "He came out a few times, and that was worrisome because this guy doesn't come out of games."

Schaffer said Smith's recovery has been good, but added that he doesn't expect him to accelerate his rehabilitation process.

The Steelers' offseason conditioning program begins Monday. Smith isn't due to arrive in Pittsburgh until the following week.

"We're not trying to set any land-speed records trying to get him ready for training camp," Schaffer said. "Now, it's just a question of letting it heal, like glue drying."

Smith had 42 tackles, 2 1/2 sacks and two fumble recoveries in 2007.

Notes: The Steelers entertained free-agent linebacker Keyaron Fox yesterday. Fox, who played four seasons with the Kansas City Chiefs, is a former third-round draft pick who had 21 tackles in 2007 while playing mostly on special teams. Fox is the sixth free agent to visit the Steelers ... Free-agent safety Eugene Wilson, who met with the Steelers last week, also has received interest from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, New York Jets, Tennessee Titans, Cincinnati Bengals and Jacksonville Jaguars

I forgot about his injury.

Hopefully his injuries/loss was a big part of the defensive problem late last season. Let's hope that changes this year.

Understatement of the year.

I'm also concerned about Ryan Clark. And wether we can have Troy Polamalu back at full strength. He's hasn't been 100% since '05.

??? Did you watch the last quater of the season?



Seriously I think we found out that Aaron Smith is the most indispensable player on the defense. I think Tomlin even said as much.

In an offseason of not so good news this is a nice change of pace. ( along with the Moore signing)
