After missing time in last week’s OTA practices, first round rookie Jarvis Jones has returned to practice and actually took some first team snaps according to Jim Wexell of Scout.com.
Jones aggravated a hamstring injury that occurred on his pro day while running the 40 yard dash, which many say, could be the reason he ended up in Pittsburgh. Wexell says Jones told him that the 3-4 scheme the Steelers run is a lot more complex than the 3-4 defense he played in while serving as an outside linebacker at the University of Georgia.
It takes time to learn the defense. In most cases, a year or two. Which makes it reasonable that Jason Worilds‘ time is now to start at the right side. However, with Worilds’ contract coming to an end when the season is over, shows that Jones better be ready for year two.
Steeler nation, we are bringing in the latest news right here on Steelers N Stuff. The important thing is Jones is now back on the field and can continue practicing with the team as he learns the defense step by step.
