Default Mini-camp is underway

This from KDKA ― It may be spring, but the Pittsburgh Steelers are back out on the field this weekend for mandatory mini-camp practices.

The three-day mini-camp kicked off today and runs through Sunday at the Steelers headquarters on the South Side. The team's first practice was held this morning.

The Steelers will hold a total of five practices, the next one starts at 3:25 p.m. today. There are two practices schedule for Saturday and then another one at 11:25 a.m. on Sunday.

Officials say all players on the Steelers roster, including the team's 19 rookies, are in attendance.

KDKA's Alison Morris reports from the South Side that neither Hines Ward nor Troy Polamalu dressed for this morning's practice. Ward is still recovering from surgery to repair a partially torn right meniscus, while Polamalu is still recovering from late season knee surgery.

Meanwhile, the Steelers are also expected introduce their 2008 first round draft pick, running back, Rashard Mendenhall, at a press conference today at their headquarters on the South Side.

He was also out this morning, practicing with the running backs.

The report also said that Ben was in great form (of course) and that Sweed did well, only dropping one pass. Dixon took some throws from Ben as well, as they worked out the potentials.

This statement alone get some legs in the forums right now. I really think it would be in the Steelers fans best interest if the season started next month.

I am just glad to hear that everyone is there and no holding out and complaining about things yet. I love the thought of Sweed joining Ward and Holmes on our recieving corp.
