Instead, Davis played just five regular-season games, all in the first half of the year, and did not record a tackle. He was inactive for the final eight regular-season games, as well as the playoffs and Super Bowl.
By Mike Bires LATROBE _ Mike Tomlin liked the “spirit of the group” at Monday’s practice. He called it a productive day. But the coach didn’t appreciate the poor training camp etiquette he saw. There were times at the afternoon workout that some players pushed and shoved each other after a play. He also thought that some of the practice periods were not run efficiently. In one instance, nose tackle Scott Paxson and guard Ramon Foster almost came to blows after they locked arms for several seconds after a pass rushing/passing blocking drill.
CFL star Stefan Logan was activated from the PUP list this morning and particpated in his first training camp practice with the Steelers. Logan was sidelined for the first three days of a camp with an ankle injury. Playing for the BC Lions of the Canadian Football League in 2008, Logan rushed 122 times for 889 yards, including 52 catches for 477 yards. Logan (5-7, 184 lbs) is expected to compete for a spot as a returner.
