    Training camp-type things and these guys need to take advantage of their down time and stay ahead of the curve when given the opportunity
    That's an interesting statement. What do these guys do that can't get on the field while everyone is practicing? Are they on the field watching, studying inside or rehabbing?

    The emphasis on easier NFL training camps under the new labor agreement has not resulted in fewer injuries for the Steelers, at least not the minor ones that keep players out for a day or three.

    Several more Steelers headed for the sideline at practice Saturday, joining what coach Mike Tomlin called a "laundry list" of minor injuries.

    At one point, two-fifths of his starting offensive line were taken off the field on the same cart to an overworked trainers' room. Left tackle Jonathan Scott went down with a sprained left ankle, and right guard Ramon Foster left with an injury Tomlin declined to specify other than to call both of them minor. Starting left guard Chris Kemoeatu is on the physically-unable-to-perform list with a knee injury and has yet to practice, and center Maurkice Pouncey missed the Saturday session with an ankle injury sustained Friday night in practice.

    "We're hopeful to have him back here the first of next week," Tomlin said of Pouncey.
    Only right tackle Willie Colon, who practiced for the first time Thursday, was left standing among the starting linemen at the end of the Saturday practice.
    "Training camp type things, man," Tomlin said. "These guys have to take advantage of their down time and stay ahead of the curve when given the opportunity."
    Wide receiver Limas Sweed, who has endured all kinds of problems since the Steelers drafted him in the second round in 2008, has another. He sustained a sprained shoulder in practice Saturday. He missed a few practices last week with a hamstring injury. Sweed is trying to make the team after missing all last season with a torn achilles tendon.

    Training camp

    Receiver Arnaz Battle has back spasms, linebacker James Harrison was given the day off, and several cornerbacks were out again with lingering minor injuries, including rookies Cortez Allen and Curtis Brown, starter Bryant McFadden and second-year defensive back Crezdon Butler. Offensive tackle Marcus Gilbert remains out with a hamstring injury.

    A bit of good news on the injury front: Hines Ward, who opened camp on the physically-unable-to-perform list after surgery on his thumb, plans to come off it Monday and practice.
