In a surprising turn of events, there are no new groin injuries to report today. Sorry, I couldn’t help myself. Seriously though, there are no new injuries, and according to Mike Tomlin, the players who have been out are getting closer to returning to action.
“No new injuries today. A lot of guys continue to work themselves back in some form or fashion,” said Tomlin. Coach T. did confirm what was speculated earlier in the week: WR Darrius Heyward-Bey has a concussion. No timeline was given for his return.
Heath Miller and Steve McLendon both were given the day off today. Tomlin was forthright about the nature of their absence. “Sometimes I give guys off to see others. We’re just team building here and that’s part of the process,” Tomlin told reporters earlier. Tomlin said that Mike Mitchell had a good workout today, and they’d take a look and see what he looks like tomorrow.
