Steelers Injuries: Jonathan Scott, Ramon Foster, Limas Sweed Out; Jerricho Cotchery A Possibility At Wide Receiver?

Offensive linemen Jonathan Scott and Ramon Foster and wide receiver Limas Sweed all left Saturday’s Steelers training camp practice with injuries. Sweed’s injury is a shoulder problem, but beyond that, the nature and severity of the injuries is currently unclear.

Sweed would be the player most hurt by an extended absence. The much-maligned former second-round draft pick has missed a bunch of time due to injury, and hadn’t played well at all when healthy. This year, as Steelers Depot points out, he’s in a good spot to seize an opportunity, with Emmanuel Sanders hurt and Antwaan Randle El gone as a salary-cap casualty. If Sweed is unsuccessful, this is probably the last shot he’s going to get, since this is the last year he’s under contract.

Meanwhile, there is a report that the Steelers will host former Jets wideout Jerricho Cotchery tomorrow. It could be that the Steelers now want more depth after Sanders’ injury. Cotchery had 433 yards receiving last year, but had more than 800 in 2008 and 2009.
