After missing the first couple days of OTAs due to family reasons, Pittsburgh Steelers defensive end Brett Keisel arrived on Thursday. While it was Keisel's fist day back, several other Steelers -- veteran and not -- were missing from action.
Ben Roethlisberger, James Harrison, Troy Polamalu, Ike Taylor, and Jerricho Cotchery were all given the day off on Keisel's first day back. Rashard Mendenhall, Jason Worilds, and Casey Hampton were all held out of activities on Thursday due to injures. There were a couple other notable faces missing, too.
According to CBS Pittsburgh:
Wide receiver Mike Wallace didn't participate, and he's not expected to for any of the OTAs, as he's holding out because of a contract dispute.
Draft picks David DeCastro, Mike Adams and Alameda Ta'amu weren't present either.
