New Steelers OLB Melvin Ingram Wearing No. 8 With Training Camp Underway

The Pittsburgh Steelers Thursday training camp practice is now underway, and word has surfaced that new outside linebacker Melvin Ingram will have a single-digit uniform number.

According to reports, Ingram is wearing No. 8 for the Steelers during Thursday’s practice. Ingram wore No. 6 during his college career at South Carolina. He probably would have chosen No. 6 with the Steelers had it not already been issued to rookie punter Pressley Harvin III. It will be interesting to see if Harvin makes the 53-man roster this year, however. If he doesn’t, we could see Ingram switch to No.
