Polamalu In Camp, But Overall A Quiet Morning

<b>LATROBE -</b> The biggest news of the morning is that first round pick Troy Polamalu is in camp and will participate in the afternoon practice. Other than that, it was a quiet morning practice, other than some more bungled snaps.

Jimond Pugh was again the main culprit, botching a shotgun snap, sending it wide right and high for Tim Levcik. This came after Pugh, an undrafted rookie, stepped on Levcik's foot on an earlier center exchange, nearly tripping the QB.

That's Pugh as in P-U.

Not to be outdone, starting center Jeff Hartings also had a long snap sail high, this one intended for Charlie Batch.

There were no explosions from head coach Bill Cowher after any of those incidents. A couple of fumbles were made by two veterans who aren't known for that.

Jason Gildon stripped Jerome Bettis of one ball, while Jay Riemersma fumbled without being touched on another play.

Brian St. Pierre had the pass of the morning, hitting Plaxico Burress perfectly in stride between Brent Alexander and Chad Scott. Touchdown.

Chidi Iwuoma and Nashville Dyer both made good plays on deep balls to break them up.
