    Timmons and Woodley hurt in minicamp.....





    PITTSBURGH -- The Pittsburgh Steelers' top two draft picks, linebackers Lawrence Timmons and LaMarr Woodley, were hurt Friday during the first day of a three-day minicamp and might not practice the rest of the weekend.
    Timmons' groin was wrapped following the morning practice and Woodley injured a hamstring. Neither injury is believed to be serious, and both players will be re-examined before the first of two practices Saturday.
    Timmons, from Florida State, was the 15th pick in last month's NFL Draft. Woodley, from Michigan, was the 46th.
    New coach Mike Tomlin called the injuries "typical ... of players trying to make a first impression."
    The recent draft was the first in which the Steelers used their top two picks on outside linebackers. They were thin at that position after releasing former Pro Bowl linebacker Joey Porter, who later signed with the Miami Dolphins.

    These 2 guys go all out after not playing football for the last 5 months or so then they get injured. I would hope the trainers keep them out for the rest of the weekend. No sense making anything worse during a minicamp.

    A groin pull isn't anything normally to worry about but the hamstring tweak could be bothersome if they don't give it rest and time to heal.

    Thats the good thing about these two guys, they've never had a history of injuries. Like K said, its them just pushing themselves being rookies.
