Steelers Still Without Stephon Tuitt At Day 1 Of OTA’s

The Pittsburgh Steelers opened up OTA’s on Tuesday afternoon with their first voluntary practice as a complete team. But the big question mark that still remains is when we’re going to see Stephon Tuitt rejoin his teammates. That didn’t happen on Tuesday. And honestly that has to be very disappointing for the Steelers and his teammates.

While this workout is voluntary, the NFL’s reigning Defensive Player of the Year TJ Watt was at practice. Najee Harris was at practice. Minkah Fitzpatrick who is expected to get a new contract by September was at practice. Tuitt’s best friend on the team Cam Heyward was at practice.

Following the Draft back on May 5th Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert touched on the return of Tuitt while joining 93.7 The Fan Pittsburgh.

“I think that we have always given him the space he needs to maneuver through his knee injury. Of course, he had a personal issue that he was working his way through, and we’ve supported them. We’ve been in communication. It’s all been positive. But again, once you miss a season like that, you have to determine what kind of player will be coming back, and that’s what we’re anxious to see. And again, we’re going to support that the whole time.”

How long is too long of a wait for Tuitt? While the Steelers know a lot more about his situation than any of us, you can’t help but feel that they have to be concerned to still not have Tuitt at practice. He’s now been away from the team for almost a year.

The Steelers have always been a central part of my life. I grew up listening to WDVE tapes recorded off of the radio of Steelers fight songs, and wearing Steelers jerseys as a fashion statement. I joined the SteelerNation.com message board when I was 12, and this site has been a big part of my life ever since. I’ve found life long friends and met some of the best people on earth through this site. In 2015, I was able to help revive the site and develop a news website and all of our social media platforms. I can’t wait to continue to grow with all of you. Go Steelers!
