    Porter back with the first team

    Steelers' Joey Porter participated in drills at practice yesterday at Saint Vincent College in Latrobe.

    For the first time since he had knee surgery in May, Pro Bowl linebacker Joey Porter took his usual spot with the first-team defense and went through contact drills at Saint Vincent College in Latrobe.

    Porter returned to practice last week, but worked only in 7-on-7 drills and did not participate in any contact drills. Yesterday, though, Porter lined up at his right outside linebacker spot in 11-on-11 drills and also took two turns in pass-rushing drills against the offensive lineman.

    Pro Bowl wide receiver Hines Ward, who missed the team's preseason opener Saturday in Arizona with a hamstring injury, returned to practice, but only in 7-on-7 drills. He did not take part in any team work.

    "Joey's coming along," coach Bill Cowher said. "It was good to pretty much get everyone out there. We're getting closer to getting a football team, and we have to. We did some good things the other day, but we had too many mental errors.

    "People have to understand, if people are going to use us as a barometer, we got to set the barometer high. We certainly didn't do that the other day."
