After making it through the first week of practices at Saint Vincent College pretty healthy, the Steelers had another one on Tuesday, as cornerback Joe Burnett suffered a rib injury diving for a tipped pass in the afternoon session.
Burnett's prognosis is not yet known, but he appeared to be in quite a bit of pain.
Burnett will join offensive tackle Tony Hills (ankle), defensive lineman Steve McClendon (knee) and safety Tuff Harris (shoulder) on the sidelines Wednesday.
McClendon was getting his knee checked out by doctors on Tuesday after injuring it Monday. Harris, meanwhile, was placed on the cut/injured reserve list Saturday after getting hurt Friday night.
Linebacker James Harrison sat out his second day of practice Tuesday with a sore shoulder but is expected to be back Wednesday.
