Steelers Training Camp: Emmanuel Sanders To Miss Three Weeks; Steelers Sign John Gilmore

A couple of notes from Steelers training camp on Tuesday. First, wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders will miss a few weeks with a foot injury. With both Sanders and Hines Ward currently unavailable to practice, and with the likelihood that Sanders won’t be able to have a critical role in the offense at the start of the season, it will be interesting to see what happens with the Steelers’ wide receiving corps. This is particularly true now that Antwaan Randle El is also gone. Look for the remaining healthy receivers, and particularly Mike Wallace, Antonio Brown and Limas Sweed - to get a ton of reps in camp.

Also, the Steelers signed John Gilmore, formerly of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and it looks like he’ll be the Steelers second tight end, replacing the departed Matt Spaeth as the backup to Heath Miller. David Johnson had been listed as their second tight end. The big loser here, though, is undrafted free agent Weslye Saunders, who might not make the team as a result of this signing.
