Default Hampton on PUP list

He failed the run test. That sucks but is pretty funny if you look at it. How do you judge a 330 lb man in a run test? lol, hope he gets in shape. We need him to be running that 4.4 in the 40.

Um, yeah. There's a reason the man plays defensive tackle...

On the other hand...he hasn't been hangin' out with Shaun Rogers, has he? I'm not really worried about Big Snack, but he does need to stay atop his weight.

He's had plenty of time since January to lose a few pounds.

On a side note, Polamalu and Kemoeatu are also on the PUP list.

Here is the story

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin placed pro bowl nose tackle Casey Hampton on the physically unable to perform (pup) list today because he could not compete the team's running tests, which is part of the physical, after reporting to training camp at Saint Vincent College in Latrobe.

Hampton, who Tomlin said was overweight, ran five of the eight required 100-yard jogs and quit. Tomlin said Hampton will remain on the pup list and will not be able to practice with his teammate until he gets in shape..


http://www.postgazette.com/pg/08209/899985-100.stm

How does he get "in shape" anytime soon?

This is not what I want to read about an aging nose guard coming off a sub-par 2007, especially after these stories from mini-camp

Tomlin has been careful not to render public judgment on players who have skipped many of the voluntary practices. ... Casey Hampton has not been around for weeks, leading to speculation he might be working with a personal trainer this spring as well.

Yeah, that worries me more that Kemo is out. Means that Mahan will be running with the 1st team at LG probably. Troy and Hamp know their jobs.

Troy is listed as having a hamstring injury - great way to kickoff Troy's big comeback year

Marinovich? Could he be causing Troy's problems? Or making them worse?

It's not the first time...

Oh, and Troy is doing his own thing. I say let him do his own thing. When the Steelers forced him into their regiment he got injured...
