Pittsburgh Steelers HC Mike Tomlin Addresses Cam Heyward’s Absence From Camp
PITTSBURGH — As the Pittsburgh Steelers closed mandatory mini camp this week, there was a notable absence along the interior of the defensive line.
Cam Heyward, a stalwart defensive tackle, missed the last two days of practice for an undisclosed reason. Heyward was present for all two weeks of voluntary OTAs and the first day of mandatory mini camp, before missing Wednesday and Thursday’s practices.
When asked if Heyward’s absence was excused, Tomlin didn’t use many words to confirm that it was.
“It is [an excused absence],” Tomlin said on Thursday.
On the interior of the defensive line, Isaiah Loudermilk and rookie DeMarvin Leal filled in at Heyward’s usual starting spot.
