The Steelers are all checked in and accounted for at Saint Vincent College and 2016 training camp is officially underway for the 51st year in Latrobe.
While the Steelers get the pads on and get preparations started on the 2016 regular season we’ll be busy looking for mentions of your Black & Gold so we’ve got you covered. Here’s your Steelers Morning Huddle for Wednesday, Aug. 3rd.
Hope no one got a chance to get used to watching Steelers cornerback Senquez Golson on the football field. According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport and Aditi Kinkhabwala the second-year defensive back could be missing some significant time again this season after missing his entire rookie year.

Golson left practice on Tuesday with a foot/ankle injury. Coach Tomlin won’t be addressing the media about injury updates until Wednesday as Tuesday was an off-day for the team. Here’s hoping it’s as true as Rapoport’s story on the Rooney’s wanting to trade
There are no backups
While the Steelers and everyone else waits for word on whether or not Le’Veon Bell will be suspended for any games of the 2016 season DeAngelo Williams has to prepare in camp as if nothing is going to be different.
He explained that there’s no difference in how to prepare if you’re a “starter” or a “backup” because the reality is that to be successful and helpful to your team you have to prepare always as if you’re the starter; just the amount of reps you get in the game could vary.
Also, happy birthday to DeAngelo Williams. You don’t look a day over 35!
Throwback uniforms don’t last forever. That’s why they’re throwbacks. Apparently this season will be the last time we’ll see the 1934 bumble bee uniforms for the Steelers. They’ve had mixed reviews since their debut in 2012 for the team’s 80th season.
Curt Popejoy of the Steelers Wire caught Mark Kaboly’s tweet about the fate of the uniforms. The Steelers could be unveiling a new throwback next year. Which one would you pick?
