Steelers entering 2023 training camp with a clean bill of health
The Pittsburgh Steelers finally got back to work Wednesday, with both the rookies and veterans reporting to Saint Vincent College in Latrobe, PA for training camp. As they joined the rest of the NFL getting back to practice, one question many fans had was if they would have any players start on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list.
Across the league news has been rampant of players starting on the PUP list, but fans of the Steelers should be happy to know they won’t be starting with anyone on the proverbial shelf with any issues with their overall health.
When head coach Mike Tomlin spoke to the media Wednesday evening, he stated while some players were hampered in spring workouts, all are cleared at this juncture.
Mike Tomlin said all players are healthy and ready to go for the first practice tomorrow. No one starts on the PUP list.

Some of the players who could have started on the PUP list would have been Cole Holcomb, who had some nagging injuries which limited him in Organized Team Activities (OTAs) and minicamp. Larry Ogunjobi is another player who has been banged up, but, like the rest of the team, all are cleared and are considered good-to-go.
Next up for the Steelers is their first practice Thursday, which is open to the public. However, fans who might want to attend the practice should know they are going to be going through the period where players get acclimated to workouts, so the first several practices won’t be padded.
