The Steelers’ annual conditioning run claimed another casualty. Some, though, were shielded from its wrath.

Veteran journeyman offensive tackle Bryce Harris did not complete the run, a series of sprints back and forth on Chuck Noll Field that opens every Steelers training camp at Saint Vincent.

“(Harris) wasn’t able to complete the test,” coach Mike Tomlin said. “We will see where he is from a conditioning standpoint, or a health standpoint.”

Tomlin excused some longtime Steelers offensive and defensive linemen from the run: Cameron Heyward, Maurkice Pouncey and Ramon Foster among them.

“Some of those guys have been around here, I’ve seen their work, those guys stayed in town (over the offseason, guys who have been at it nine, 10 years and so forth that I have watched work,” Tomlin said, “I extend those courtesies to.”

Rookie defensive back Trey Johnson was also excused from the run because of a shoulder injury, and he was waived/injured after it. Signed Wednesday, Eli Rogers (recovery from torn ACL) did not participate and will open camp on the physically unable to perform list.

Tomlin said he was pleased with the conditioning of the remainder of the roster.
