Safety Minkah Fitzpatrick says he’s ready to go despite only having been in camp a few days because of a personal matter. He says it will be basic football tonight, nothing fancy.
After the game tonight, the Steelers will have tomorrow off and then return to the practice field at St. Vincent on Sunday. There are only four practices remaining for the public to attend in Latrobe. They will be on Sunday, Tuesday, and Wednesday at 1:55 PM, and next Thursday at 10:30 AM.
