Javon Hargrave was injured during Thursday's OTA practice. Little is known about the severity of the injury, with the exception that the second year nose-tackle walked off the field following the incident. Hargrave played in 15 games as a rookie, managing to solidify a spot at the top of the depth chart in 13 of 15. (Pennlive )
Hargrave provided consistent production during his rookie campaign, especially considering the lack of depth at the defensive tackle position. The Steelers have addressed such personnel issues, bringing in former 10th overall draft selection Tyson Alualu of the Jacksonville Jaguars. While Daniel McCullers is the immediate backup, Alualu will certainly be called upon at some point this season. Look for Hargrave to receive a majority of the workload this year, barring a serious injury.
