Here are the highlights from the Pittsburgh Steelers Thursday training camp practice.

Trubisky and Rudolph sharp

The Steelers had their first rond of seven shots at training camp on Thursday and veterans Mason Rudolph and Mitch Trubisky both looked very good. They both showed excellent command of the offense and made some exceptional throws.

Starting tight end Pat Freiermuth wasn’t able to finish practice on Thursday due to something head coach Mike Tomlin called lower-body tightness. No word yet on the severity of the injury.

While Trubisky and Rudolph are making plays, rookie Kenny Pickett continues to struggle with his throws. There’s no reason to panic at this point but objectively speaking, he’s been the third-best quarterback on the team.

Every practice that George Pickens gets on the field that Diontae Johnson doesn’t, Pickens gets another chance to show the Steelers don’t need to overpay for Johnson. Pickens is impressive everyone in attendance with his athleticism and body control.
