Steelers back up center Cody Wallace missed the last few practices at OTAs. More often than not, the organization keeps its collective lips sealed about such absences. Even though OTA’s are completely voluntary, they certainly aren’t without value. When a player who isn’t Polamalu has an extended absence, a fraction of the fanbase wonders ‘is he injured?’. ‘Is it serious?’.
Fortunately, according to Scout writer Jim Wexell, Cody Wallace has missed the end of OTA’s due to the birth of his child. Congratulations to mom and dad.
Wallace was a free agent this offseason, and the team re-signed him to a three year deal in March. Originally a 4th round pick, the versatile lineman proved to be a valuable addition to a line that was plagued with injuries last season.
Back to OTA’s- With Pouncey not participating in team drills today, Chris Snow filled in as first team center. Wallace’s backup role was filled by rookie jack-of-all-trades Wesley Johnson.
