Steelers 2019 Training Camp Recap: Rain cuts somber practice short on Tuesday

The Pittsburgh Steelers have just a few training camp practices left, and while there are times it is still considered “football in shorts”, the team has had plenty of news coming from these workouts heading into the preseason.

Of all the workouts to date from Saint Vincent College, Tuesdays practice might have gone down as one of the more somber practices in Latrobe, PA. After finding out about the death of wide receivers coach Darryl Drake early Sunday, it took all the energy and enthusiasm out of camp — as expected.

The Steelers were forced to try and move on, and try to find some sense of normalcy, but there is a new normal the team must try and get accustomed to both at camp and when the team returns back to Pittsburgh in a few days.
