Steelers third-round DB Cameron Sutton (hamstring, injured reserve) returned to practice Tuesday.

Sutton earned praise for his work in the offseason program, but he missed most of camp with a hamstring injury before aggravating the issue in the preseason finale. The Steelers now have a three-week window to activate him off injured reserve.

How many PR reps can we get in over the bye week?

Moats was really, really bad last game, but I guess he's depth. Sensabaugh not doing much at all, but at least his nothing isn't being done on the field.

He's been horrible as the jammer on PR-- our worst unit.

I'll cop to not having paid a ton of attention to ST this year, as I pretty much wrote it off after the Bears game, but that's a good enough argument for Sensabaugh getting cut for me.

Chick wasn't really that much better than Moats, anyway, so cutting Moats just basically means more snaps of that, which will likely turn out just as badly.

Sorry, but as long as Willie Gay is getting significant reps then we still need to upgrade the secondary.

What Sunday looked like, to some extent, was a secondary not used to covering that long because the rush/blitz wasn't getting home.

I love punt returns and love watching other punt returners. What we have masquerading as punt returners is pretty lame, and may be the lamest I have seen in 20+ years.

Whether it is Brown or Rogers they both have no balls, no guts, no confidence. I am tired of the excuses of there not being any blocking, what can Brown/Rogers do? Bullshit. Your punt returners have to have confidence and swagger and take chances. I am so tired of watching Brown just let the ball bounce and have it roll inside our 15, 10, 5 yard line. Those are prime opportunities to actually get a sizable return. You have to have the confidence to snatch that ball up and make a move.

I saw Cam Sutton do this time and time again in watching his returns. He almost took it as an insult to let a ball hit the ground and roll and ruin his team chances of getting field position. Here is an example of him playing against Bowling Green:

https://youtu.be/zhnk727-WQI?t=94

In that video the ball falls short of him and is tumbling right by him, but he runs back, tracks it and snatches the ball with his sure hands and then proceeds to have a big return of some 50 yards. The past two years, be it Brown or Rogers they would have let the ball continue rolling and be downed inside the 5 yard line.

Here is another example of a punter trying to punt away from Sutton:

https://youtu.be/x0O_afwVVcg?t=146

Sutton runs to the football along the sideline, and it is tumbling but he snatches it up and then returns it for 40+ yards. Again, the past two years with Brown and Rogers, that is a football that continues to tumble and be downed inside the 15, 10, 5 yard line. No balls no glory, if you don't have what it takes to get the job done put somebody in there who can.

This team needs the return game to start making contributions and specifically the punt return game. Sutton could be the elixir to solve the problem, I know that Brown and Rogers are not the answer.
