Tweets of the Day…
Overall, Martavis Bryant had a strong camp. Thursday’s joint practice against the Bills could’ve been his best.
Shazier took part in a full practice (from what I saw). That should make him ready to go Saturday.
W/ Pouncey and Ramon both not practicing, it’s Wallace at C and Hubbard at LG w/ the starters
Play of the Day: WR Darrius Heyward-Bey and QB Bruce Gradkowski hooked up on an 85-yard catch-and-run TD at expense of Bills CB Sam Miller.
Practice observation: Ben hit 8 in a row in WR-DB drill. DBs clutched, grabbed throughout. WPIAL officials made 0 calls. Balls still caught.
Stephon Tuitt part of two-man wedge on kickoff return. Did that in preseason opener too.
