Default Mini-camp thoughts

Mini-camp thoughts
F. Dale Lolley, the Observer-Reporter's veteran Steelers beat reporter, provides an inside view for Pittsburgh and the rest of the National Football League.

It appears that Limas Sweed's career with the Steelers is probably over after he suffered an Achilles tendon injury on Sunday during the final day of the Steelers three-day mini-camp.

The initial diagnosis is a ruptured Achilles tendon for Sweed, who was coming back from being placed on injured reserve at the end of last season due to personal problems.

We'll now likely never know if Sweed was going to turn things around after two unproductive seasons with the Steelers. The former second-round pick was heading into his third season facing a make-or-break situation and, being a wide receiver, running fast is pretty important.

It's likely Sweed will be placed on injured reserve, a move that will likely mean he's played his last game with the Steelers.

Don't read too much into Byron Leftwich getting most of the snaps with the first-team offense.

That's a move that was made to get him acclimated as soon as possible for an upcoming training camp battle with Dennis Dixon to see who replaces Ben Roethlisberger the first month of the season.

Leftwich certainly has the experience factor working in his favor. Dixon has the athletic edge.

I think eventually the team will settle on Dixon. It's a lot easier to start him and replace him with Leftwich if Dixon falters than it is the other way around.

Leftwich is accustomed to coming off the bench at this point in his career. Dixon is not.
