Steelers notebook: Harrison cuts media availability short after PED question

For a schedule, map, roster and everything else you need to know, click here for the Trib's digital roundup of the Steelers’ training camp in Latrobe.


• James Harrison said he did not want to talk about the NFL wishing to interview him. He meant it. The 38-year-old linebacker's first comments to the media this training camp ended after less than a minute. Harrison had approached reporters by warning, “If you want to ask me about the PED stuff, I'm not talking about it.” Less than 45 seconds later, Harrison was asked if he could acknowledge that the league is attempting to speak with him in regards to an Al-Jazeera report late last year in which he was accused of purchasing performance-enhancing drugs. “All right, thank you,” Harrison said as he walked away. “That's it.” The NFL has insisted on interviewing Harrison and three other active players who were named in the Al-Jazeera report. The players' union has strongly resisted the league's request, and Harrison last month filed an affidavit saying he had not used the substance he was alleged to have, nor did he know the report's source.

• The Steelers en masse were in pads for the first full-contact practice of training camp — but quarterbackBen Roethlisberger was not. It isn't uncommon for coach Mike Tomlin to give established veterans days off during camp as a method of preserving their bodies. No other notable healthy veteran players were given the day off. Rookie center Quinton Schooley did not participate and had a knee wrapped up. Fullback Roosevelt Nix and undrafted rookie running back Brandon Johnson both left practice after Tomlin said they were “shaken up.” Tomlin said tight endXavier Grimble left it because of “heat exhaustion.”

• Kentucky basketball coach John Calipari made his annual visit to St. Vincent for Steelers training camp. Calipari is from Moon and said he grew up a Steelers fan. Also, Steelers quarterbacks coach Randy Fichtner was offensive coordinator at Memphis when Calipari coached.
