Former Crimson Tide standout and Pittsburgh Steeler All-Pro safety, Minkah Fitzpatrick, will be unavailable for the start of mini-camp due to an injury he suffered while biking on vacation this off-season.

The injury is not believed to be serious, but it has provided some discomfort that will hold him out. With the season just around the corner, they will need Fitzpatrick to be ready for the Week 1 matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Fitzpatrick recently inked a four-year $73.6 million deal with Pittsburgh to stay in the Steel City, so they will be as cautious with him as possible. Fitzpatrick was the cornerstone price of the Steeler’s defense in 2021 alongside NFL Defensive Player of the Year, T.J. Watt. In 16 starts, Fitzpatrick accounted for 124 tackles, two interceptions and seven passes deflected.
