A nagging groin injury continues to limit linebacker Lawrence Timmons on the practice field, but the Steelers' first-round pick says he's close to getting back to full strength.
"I know I'll be on the field soon, so I think I'll be just fine," Timmons said Tuesday after a voluntary practice at the team's South Side facility.

The outside linebacker injured his groin during the first day of minicamp a couple of weeks ago. Timmons said he "tweaked" it, and he hasn't participated in workouts during his first month with the team. Timmons said he and the Steelers have been cautious with the injury, so it doesn't hamper him later.

"I want to finish it now, so I don't have to worry about it during training camp or the season," Timmons said.


Second-year running back John Kuhn also has been working at fullback to help the Steelers -- and his own cause.
"Coach (Mike Tomlin) said the more you can do, the better your chances are," Kuhn said of making the team, "and that's all I'm trying to do, open as many doors as I can."

The 6-foot, 255-pound Kuhn played in eight games for the Steelers last season, mostly on special teams. The former Shippensburg standout said he's been working on polishing his blocking technique.

"It's a little different than just going in and slamming your head into somebody," Kuhn said.

The Steelers only have two fullbacks on their roster -- Dan Kreider and undrafted free agent Aaron Robbins.

Better to take the time now before camp starts to get healthy because that's when it really counts and you make your mark on this squad. It's important to be here for the off season stuff so you can learn and get to know the players and coaches but he needs to get healthy.

As far as Kuhn goes, :woot: , keep working hard man and you're chances of making this team will be improved !

Wonder how that Aaron Robbins is doin? I've not read any progress reports on him.

It's a shame that Timmons hasn't gotten a chance to gel with the others yet--I just hope he's a fast learner!

Yeah this missed time is really allowing Woodley to step up and get some valuable reps on the field which will give him an edge come training camp.

I'm rooting for Kuhn to make this team and time as FB will greatly help his chances of doing so.
As for Timmons, any progress is a good sign and I am sure that the injury is frustrating to both him and the coaching staff. But as long as he's ready come training camp he will be fine.
