Sometimes no news is good news, but in Steelers training camp, these four names need to start sticking out.

It is common every season to have a training camp player or two really start to stick out. The Steelers have already seen that this year with George Pickens and Mark Robinson shining so far in practice. That said, there are quite a few players who have yet to make much noise and as a result, are hurting their roster chances.

Here are four Steelers that have gone missing in training camp.

Chris Oladokun isn’t even taking snaps at Steelers camp

While Chris Oladokun was never going to compete as a rookie for the starting quarterback gig, the fact that he has done nothing so far is a bad sign for his future with the team. Granted, this hasn’t been his fault. The Steelers are letting their top three quarterbacks battle it out for the starting role, and each of those reps are valuable.

What has seemingly really buried Oladokun is the fact that Mason Rudolph is actually holding his own in camp. While not flashy, Rudolph has been the most consistent quarterback so far, so it is hard for the team to justify taking him off the field. This has led to Oladokun not playing a snap yet.

Considering there was buzz that the team was potentially willing to move on from Rudolph, it seems like Oladokun will now be the odd man out. It isn’t his fault that he has disappeared, but his absence is worth noting, nonetheless. Playing time may surface for him later on, but unless an injury occurs at this point, expect his stint with the team to have to continue on the practice squad.
