  • Steelers' Cole Holcomb: On track for training camp

    Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said Wednesday that Holcomb (knee) is on track to be ready for training camp, Nick Farabaugh of SteelersNow.com reports. Holcomb's knee injury had previously been believed to be significant enough to force the 27-year-old linebacker into medical retirement, but he looks as though he'll be able to return to the field after all. Before sustaining his season-ending injury, Holcomb appeared in eight games for Pittsburgh and recorded 54 total tackles and two forced fumbles. Assuming the knee issue isn't still slowing him down during camp, Holcomb should fill a starting role at inside linebacker for the Steelers in 2024.

  • Steelers' Cole Holcomb: Future status still in question

    Holcomb (knee) still doesn't have a timeline for when he may be able to return to the field, Adam Borst of SteelersNow.com reports. Holcomb suffered a significant knee injury Week 9 against the Titans that required season-ending surgery to repair. Since then, there has been speculation that the damage done was enough to keep the North Carolina product on the sidelines permanently, bringing an early end to his career. However, according to GM Omar Khan, Holcolmb is "working extremely hard to get back. I don't really have much to add on a timeline." Khan further stated, "It was a major injury, but he is working hard and I'm optimistic about all the effort he's going to put into getting back on the field."

  • Steelers' Cole Holcomb: Could be done

    Holcomb's knee injury suffered last season could be career-threatening, Chris Mueller of 93.7 The Fan reports. Holcomb suffered a significant knee injury in Week 9 last season that saw him carted off the field and taken to the hospital. Mueller's speculation seems to arise from previous comments made by Steelers executive Omar Khan, as well as the addition of Patrick Queen in free agency. Ray Fittipaldo of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported Feb. 29 that according to Khan, Holcomb was working hard but didn't have a timeline for a return.

    Holcomb (foot) did not participate at practice Friday ahead of Monday's game at Philadelphia, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.
