There have been some suggestions from Steelers players regarding changes to the team’s training routines following Sunday’s 41-10 loss to the Bengals, but wide receiver Chase Claypool’s suggestion that the team is playing music at the start of their sessions was rejected by head coach Mike Tomlin.
Minkah Fitzpatrick’s suggestion that the team increase the intensity in training, however, received a warmer welcome. Tomlin said the team’s’ outfit ‘could change during practice on Wednesday and the team put on full pads for a session and defensive lineman Chris Wormley said that helped’ a bit. more energy was faster ”than their usual sessions.
Linebacker Joe Schobert agreed with Wormley about the differences on the pitch.
“A lot of people were flying and hitting,” Schobert said, via Joe Rutter of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Revue. “The pads were bursting so it was a good day of training. “
The Steelers will have two more days of practice before facing the Ravens and Sunday’s result will determine whether the change had the desired effect in Pittsburgh.
