Steelers tackle suffers knee injury in OTAs
Non-contact OTA practices may have claimed another player.
According to Ray Fittipaldo of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Steelers tackle Jerald Hawkins suffered a knee injury in practice this morning, and it appears to be serious.
It wasn’t a good feeling. Nobody likes to lose, Crowell said. I’m a sore loser. I do whatever I can to win. It wasn’t a good feeling.
The marriage of Crowell and the Jets looks like a good one. He will still have to share time with Bilal Powell and Eli McGuire, but Crowell will get the brunt of the work. The Jets get a durable running back who has not missed a game in his four-year career. That is something the team has lacked in their lead running back under coach Todd Bowles. Both Matt Forte and Chris Ivory battled injuries and missed time.
Rooney described the league’s solution to the anthem issue as an attempt to strike a balance on a divisive issue. The response to that solution over the last two days makes it hard to argue with another of Rooney’s comments on Thursday.
I don’t think there is a way to satisfy everyone, Rooney said.
Rooney went on to say that he does not expect the issue to be a problem for the Steelers this year. The Steelers did not have anyone take a knee last season, but did wind up in the middle of the story when the majority of the team remained in the locker room for the anthem before a September game while left tackle Alejandro Villanueva, who served in the United States Army, was standing by himself just outside of the tunnel.
Charles Robinson on Yahoo Sports has been all over the Colin Kaepernick collusion case. With the Kaepernick case and the anthem issue currently back on the NFL’s front burner, it was a good time to bring Charles back for another visit to #PFTPM.
