The Pittsburgh Steelers have been dealing with players missing OTAs because of injuries. At today's session, linebacker Jason Worilds was held out of activities because he is still recovering from wrist surgery, according to Pittsburgh Tribune-Review Steelers writer Mark Kaboly.
Worilds had wrist surgery is why he has been out.

This is the first time we've known about any kind of surgery on Worilds. However there are no indications that this will be a lingering problem going into training camp.
In addition, there are players that are still recovering from ailments. Both linebacker James Harrison and tight end Weslye Saunders are recovering from knee and leg issues, respectively.
Harrison has been dealing with an inflamed knee. Expected to take part in minicamp though.— Mark Kaboly (@MarkKaboly_Trib) June 7, 2012
Wes Saunders has been dealing with leg issues as well. Has protective "@JoeStarkey1" boot on leg.— Mark Kaboly (@MarkKaboly_Trib) June 7, 2012
Hopefully these issues will not linger with these players and they will be ready when training camp begins in August.
