Default Inside the ropes: Steelers work on 2-minute drill

By Mark Kaboly

The Steelers worked on their two-minute drill during practice Wednesday evening at St. Vincent but not with quarterback Ben Roethlisberger or any other first-team skill guys. Steelers coach Mike Tomlin wanted to replicate who likely would be on the field during Monday's game against Washington during a two-minute situation at the end of the half or game. Neither Bruce Gradkowski nor Landry Jones fared well as both threw game-ending interceptions. Josh Victorian intercepted Gradkowski's third-down pass intended for Jerricho Cotchery, and rookie Shamarko Thomas picked off Jones a couple of plays into the third team's reps.

• Rookie outside linebacker Jarvis Jones worked plenty with the first-team defense as Jason Worilds watched from the sidelines. Worilds later returned to the first team, and Jones slid back to the second team.

• Former Steelers offensive line Tunch Ilkin was working with the linebackers on hand drills by having hand target pads on and showing the group the proper way to shed blocks by using their hands.

• Kicker Shaun Suisham is better known for his accuracy than ability to make long kicks. However, Suisham showed off his leg during Family Day at camp Wednesday. He kicked a 60-yard field goal during special teams coach Danny Smith's “May Day” drill, which calls for rushing onto the field for a last-second attempt with the clock running. Suisham's kick would have been good from at least 65 yards.

• The Steelers continued to shuffle their backup offensive linemen. Kelvin Beachum took reps at center and left tackle and John Malecki snaps at center and left guard. Guy Whimper and Mike Golic Jr. continued to play right guard; both started camp at tackle.

• Speedster Reggie Dunn didn't have a chance to show off his speed on special teams during last week's preseason game, but he showed a glimpse as a receiver. During 11-on-11, Dunn crossed the middle, made a catch and outraced Thomas, DaMon Cromartie-Smith and Vince Williams for a substantial gain.

• The Steelers spent a significant time working on underneath passing with a lot of inside crosses, but Roethlisberger was able to let loose on a 50-yard bomb down the right sideline to Emmanuel Sanders that beat Victorian. Roethlisberger was 5 for 5 during the “passer under pressure” drill.

Wow. Sushi's leg must be on the juice. 65 yards is pretty impressive.

Good to hear Victorian and Shamarko got picks, but it sucks it was against our guys. The secondary could certainly use some good news right now. Hopefully, we won't need to see the backup QBs this year except in mop-up duty.

It sounds like practice had a "Doomsday Preppers" feeling to it.

they didn't get picks against ben at least (don't know if this is entirely good, would like to see them make plays against big time qb's too). seems like he and sanders are building some chemistry in camp, sounds like them connecting on big plays has been happening often

Let's hope they do that in the games! Practice makes for improvement, right?

Of course, if Roethlisberger did get intercepted, we'd just throw him under the bus instead of high-fiving the defender who intercepted.
